Avast adds network discovery to Business Hub


Security vendor Avast has added a network discovery tool to its Business Hub platform.

Avast Business Hub allows SMEs and the MSPs and VARs that serve them to manage all their Avast services from one place, and includes a dashboard, reporting, device and policy management, alerts and notifications, and more.

The latest addition is a network discovery tool.

According to Avast, this enables network administrators to easily analyse their entire IT network and deploy Avast Business security services – including antivirus, patch management and cloud backup – to all supported endpoints in minutes to keep the business safe.

In addition, it allows admins to keep track of unauthorised devices accessing the network, a function that has become more important following the rise of BYOD and hybrid working.

"Today, SMBs have very diverse networks, and we're not only talking about laptops, desktops or servers, but virtual servers, wireless access points, VoIP boxes, mobile phones, IoT devices, and much more," said Avast Business vice president of product Filip Hlinka.

"In this age of network complexity, a single unprotected device can be the cause of a breach. With network discovery, we're simplifying the issue to give SMBs the confidence and freedom to focus on growing their business, comfortable in the knowledge that their IT network is secure."

MSPs and VARs benefit from network discovery as it provides a quick and easy way to determine exactly what's on a customer's – or potential customer's – network, allowing accurate pricing and quoting, and reducing the risk of nasty surprises after work commences.

The new network discovery tool is fully integrated within Avast Business Hub, and is available to Business Hub customers at no additional charge.

A free 30-day trial of Business Hub is available.
