Avast Business Hub to Get Updated Network Visibility as Hybrid Work Becomes the Standard for SMBs
LONDON, October 27, 2021 / PRNewswire / – Avast (LSE: AVST), a global leader in digital security and privacy, has launched a new free network discovery tool within its Avast Business Hub. Network Discovery is a fully integrated network discovery tool that aims to help small and medium businesses (SMBs), Managed Service Providers (MSPs) and Value Added Resellers (VARs) achieve complete network visibility.
Modern networks are constantly changing due to the popularity of wireless environments and Bring-Your-Own-Device (BYOD) policies. Keeping track of all the devices connected to a network can be an overwhelming task for any network administrator, but it is essential for capacity planning and security. Avast Network Discovery addresses this issue, allowing network administrators to easily scan their entire computer network and deploy Avast Business security services, including anti-virus, patch management, and backup in the cloud, on all supported endpoints within minutes to keep the business secure.
In addition to getting better visibility into the computer network, Network Discovery offers users the ability to track unauthorized devices accessing the corporate network. This is something that is especially critical in the age of hybrid work where employees can be spread across a variety of locations using both personal and work-approved devices.
“Today, SMEs have very diverse networks, and we are not just talking about laptops, desktops or servers, but virtual servers, wireless access points, VoIP boxes, mobile phones. , IoT devices and more, ”commented Philippe Hlinka, Vice President of Product, Avast Business. “In an age of complex networks, a single unprotected device can be the cause of a breach. With Network Discovery, we simplify the problem to give SMBs the confidence and freedom to focus on growing their business, knowing that their computer network is secure. “
For MSPs and VARs, Network Discovery also facilitates the process of onboarding new customers. With Network Discovery, MSPs and VARs are able to gain a quick and accurate overview of what exactly is in their customers’ network, allowing them not only to set an accurate price for services, but also to avoid any surprises on the network once the work has started.
Network Discovery is fully integrated with Avast Business Hub. It is now available worldwide at no additional cost to Business Hub users. More information about Avast Business Hub is available at: www.avast.com/business/business-hub
