Patch Management in CloudCare

Description

Identify critical vulnerabilities and quickly deploy updates to all endpoints Patch management plays a critical role in endpoint security, but many businesses are reluctant to patch because there are too many patches, patching often interrupts operations, and they can cause problems with other systems.  Avast Business Patch Management takes the guesswork out of patching by identifying critical vulnerabilities and making it easy to deploy patches across all endpoints from one central dashboard.

Avast Secure Web Gateway - Annual Subscription

Description

Cloud-based, enterprise-grade web protection for small and medium businesses

Avast Business Secure Web Gateway is a fully scalable, cloud-based web security solution that blocks web threats before they get into your network. Now you can secure your network traffic without the complexity and overhead of additional proxy servers or on-premise appliances. Just point your DNS to us and take advantage of our enterprise-grade network security services.

Advanced Protection
Our threat detection network draws from 21 different threat feeds from some of the largest research teams in the security space, acting as always-awake security guards. Any threat detected anywhere in our cloud is immediately blocked for that customer and all customers within our network.


Reduced Complexity
Secure Web Gateway can be configured in three easy steps and deployed within minutes from the CloudCare security platform. With CloudCare, you can easily deploy a range of security services, manage policies, check device status, and remediate issues – all from  a single pane of glass.


Increased Speed
Secure Web Gateway uses DNS-based lookups that take less than 2 milliseconds, so they won’t slow your network down like appliances and proxy servers. Network traffic, including remote users, is automatically directed to the nearest DNS server to deliver the highest performance experience.

How it Works
When an uncategorized web address is accessed via our service, a proxy of that content is staged and the site gets inspected for threats. Once this inspection is complete, the site gets categorized and classified in one of dozens of pre-configured categories, and this new intelligence then gets pushed out to the entire network.

Once you have placed your order a Charity Digital Customer Service representive will set your licenses up for you and send over logins on how to access your product this will go to your registered email address.
