Alabama State University switches to security in the cloud

Networks are relentlessly attacked by online threats. Organizations need quality security products to keep their network secure.

When Jothan Virgil, an IT Administrator at Alabama State University located in Montgomery, Alabama, got an email announcing the new, free Avast for Business product, he did his research and signed up.

Virgil knows that a good antivirus product is the most important part of protecting a network and was using Avast Endpoint Protection before switching. ”The new cloudbased solution is easier to manage.” Avast for Business lets Virgil see his entire network anywhere, anytime making his job easier.

Alabama State has a very large network managed by multiple IT professionals, with over 1,000 faculty and staff members and more than 5,600 students. Avast for Business now protects all of them from one console.

“Avast for Business is so easy to deploy and monitor, it’s made the administration of our network much smoother.” System notifications tell Virgil exactly which machines are being hit with viruses or malware.

And it’s not just easy. It’s also free. Avast for Business created a savings that Virgil can use somewhere else. He’s certain the savings will go to good use in their growing IT environment.
