Avast 2012 business products

We are proud to be the authorized avast distributor in central Minnesota.

To purchase one of avast's business products contact us today.  There are advantages to purchasing through a local reseller.  If you have problems with installation you have a local resource to contact for support, and when it's time to renew you get a renewal discount.  Please note that if you purchase avast through some other online distributor, you are not purchasing from Border States Consulting, and support will be billed at the regular hourly rate.


  What started out as the brain child of two Czech scientists, has turned into an award winning piece of security software.

  One of the things about avast that makes it a cut above the competition is the avast distributed network manager (ADNM) console for network administrators.  From one location you can deploy the product to the workstations on your network, set up automated scans and reporting tasks, and keep a finger on the pulse of your network by seeing at a glance which, if any, machines have detected a problem.  The reporting features give you (and your boss) solid evidence that your IT dollars have been well spent.

  Its unrivaled flexibility and scalability makes it an ideal solution for networks of any size. The ADNM system consists of the following components:
  • avast! Management Server (AMS)
  • SQL Database (you can use an existing MSSQL server, or MSSQL Express will be installed)
  • Administration Console

  The ADNM works with the avast! antivirus products deployed on individual workstations and servers on the network to provide the best possible protection against malware and to minimize the effort needed to manage and monitor their current status.

  You can plan on approximately 2 to 3 hours start to finish for installing and configuring the ADNM.  The time required to deploy the workstation and server client software depends on a number of things.  If you have a different antivirus software installed on the clients, you must  remove it before you can deploy the avast client software.  Also, if your clients are running Windows Firewall, you must create an exception for file and printer sharing (this allows the ADNM to communicate with each workstation).  You could manually do this on each machine, or you could create a domain policy for it and roll that out to all the workstations.

  The ADNM download package includes the managed versions of both avast! Server Edition and avast! Professional Edition (for Network Clients), so they do not need to be downloaded separately. I encourage you to use them in "Demo" mode for the 60-day trial period.  I am confident that by the end of the trial period you will be sold on the product and will be ready to purchase the licenses to keep your network covered.  To go from Demo to paid is a no-hassle import of a license file into the ADNM - it literally takes no more than 5 minutes.

  Let Border States Consulting show you how this product will save you time and give you peace of mind knowing your network is safe from malware.
