Trust Avast to keep your businesses safe from ransomware and other advanced cyberattacks.

Avast has increased their security offering by adding new features and also building on existing features. The new features include USB protection (device control) and mobile device protection. They have built on their Ransomware protection by adding additional features to this security layer.


USB Protection

Businesses face serious threats from unauthorized data transfers and from malware making its way into corporate systems via removable storage devices. To combat these threats, businesses need to implement USB port protection to keep their networks safe and secure especially with employees working from home and elsewhere which increases risk of these threats.

USB port protection prevents unauthorized devices including flash drives, external drives, mobile phones, and more from being connected to corporate computers and network servers. It also blocks the execution of malicious code that may be present on USB storage devices. By introducing USB port protection, businesses can protect themselves from the costly damages that can be caused by data theft and malware infections.

Some businesses have tried to address this issue by disabling USB ports, but that is not always practical, as USB ports are often used for other devices such as keyboards and mice, therefore USB protection is the most effective solution. Businesses can then ensure that only authorized devices can access their data, and that any malicious software on those devices is unable to infect their computers.

Avast’s USB Protection also provides visibility into who is using what devices on which endpoints and is available in the Avast Business Hub, Avast Business Premium and Avast Ultimate Business Security products.

Feature enhancements to the Ransomware Shield

There's nothing worse than having your personal photos, documents, and files taken hostage. But that's exactly what happens when you become the victim of a ransomware attack. Ransomware is a type of malware that encrypts your files and then demands a ransom in order for you to get the decryption key payable to cybercriminals.

Ransomware Shield is an important security program that every business and computer user should have. It importantly secures your personal photos, documents, and files from being modified or deleted by blocking ransomware attacks.

Avast has additional protection features against ransomware which is launching later in August so lookout for this improved service. Ransomware vitally protects your personal data from being modified, deleted, or encrypted. You can specify protected folders and add allowed or blocked applications. Therefore, you’re in control regarding which applications will always be blocked and which applications you have access to modify the folders.

Avast has focused their efforts on providing more value and security in their products to protect small and medium businesses and provide peace of mind with more value and security for you.
