Tettnang, Germany (Press Release – December 1, 2011) – IT security expert Avira announced today a new product aimed at micro and small business users: Avira Endpoint Security. Available for both Windows and Unix users, Avira Endpoint Security includes features designed to simplify security set-up and administration for businesses with more than 3 users.
Avira Endpoint Security consists of the following components: Avira Management Console, Configuration Wizard, Avira Professional Security and Avira Server Security (both for Windows and Unix). The Configuration Wizard allows users to install, set up and manage distributed endpoint machines from one central point. This capability makes Avira Endpoint Security ideal for any business that wants to protect its network without the hassle of a complex installation, configuration or administration procedures.
Avira Endpoint Security was built specifically for micro and small businesses with the following characteristics:
– 3+ employees/users or more
– Microsoft or Unix operating systems installed on PC/Server endpoints
– Active directory
– Needing both PC and Fileserver protection
“Seventy-one percent of our corporate customers have fewer than 100 users. These micro and small-sized businesses have outgrown consumer-grade security software but they don’t need the complexity and cost of large enterprise systems,” said Travis Witteveen, COO at Avira. “So we developed Avira Endpoint Security to target their needs for basic fileserver and endpoint protection along with most-wanted features like easy setup and administration.”
