Jeff,

That is also true. Just don't check the Remote Admin option when
installing the client.

As a reseller, I would like you to install the Administration Center or
use Cloudcare and try it out to see if you would like to replace your
current product company wide. :-) But it works perfectly the same
when in stand alone.

Roger,

You don't _need_ to use remote administration, do you? I mean, I can just
install the AV on the workstation, with proper settings, and be done with
it, right?

Thanks.

Jeff,

For the traditional AVG Business Editions, the administrator center can
install on any PC, doesn't have to be a server grade OS and doesn't
require the client on the same machine. However, I am not sure what
other AVs are going to do about it. Part of the center's job is to
download the virus db and then serve it out to the clients.

One note. If the two PCs are notebooks, (spending time outside your
firewall) you will want to setup the center with a username and
password, map port 4158 through your firewall to the center and then
setup the clients to find the center at your public domain and use the
username/password. Assuming your firewall will properly reflect requests
from inside the same as from outside.

For the Cloudcare AVG, the administrator center runs in the cloud and
you only need a browser to access it.

Thanks everyone for the responses.

I think I'll just buy the 2 licenses I need for those 2 users.

Questions to those already using AVG business: It appears (as stated in
replies) that it is remotely managed.

Does this mean if I install it on 2 users that I must install it too to
manage it remotely? Or can I manage it remotely without installing it on
my workstation?

Thanks.

I agree with Roger on this. If you look at the license terms the free
AVs
are not licensed for use by businesses.

My past corporate experience has been with McAfee & MS Forefront.
Forefront is among the worst at detection; I would avoid for that
reason &
I think MS is ending support anyway.

Considerations:
- If you work with a reseller, see what they can offer you. Some AV
brands
have discounts available for displacing competitors.
- Ballpark how many licenses are you looking at?
- Are you subject to any compliance regs that include reporting on AV
status?
- Platform support: Windows/Mac/Linux?
- How much admin time is devoted to AV support? How much support staff
time
is consumed by malware remediation? What products reduce the time
needed?
- Other endpoint protection functions that might be useful/necessary
(anti-spam, endpoint firewall, hard drive encryption, DLP, Host IPS,
etc.)

BTW, If you were asking if "AVG FREE" was suitable for work - NO.

The free AVs are for home users only. Businesses, charities and schools
have to pay. Some companies (AVG does) have discount programs for
charities and schools.

Jeff,

I am an AVG Reseller and have been using the Network Edition for my
customers for years. This has an administration center that allows you
to control the AVG clients as well as get reports on them.

AVG is moving to what they call CloudCare. Same principal but instead
of
running the admin on your own hardware AVG hosts it. One change they
made in the move to the cloud is that there anti-spam product no
longer
runs on the PCs. You have to point you DNS MX entry to their servers
and
then either pickup the email from there or have it forwarded on to
your
own servers after being filtered.

We currently use a paid AV (ESET) for all workstations and servers.
A
couple of workstations are experiencing issues.

The issue is not the AV software or viruses, but this AV software
requires
a monitoring piece of software that intermittently causes performance
problems.

I've used AVG Free at home for years with nary an issue. Is it
suitable
for using at work (workstations only, not servers)? Anyone actually
doing
that?

Thanks.
