Tolly Group Highlights AVG CloudCare’s Breadth Of Coverage In Comparative Tests

AVG Technologies N.V. (NYSE: AVG), the provider of Internet and mobile security, privacy and optimization to 150 million active users, today announced the results of comparative testing by Tolly Group, the premier independent test lab and provider of third-party validation services, of AVG CloudCare™, a cloud-based remote administration platform provided to resellers free-of-charge to help them manage their small business customers’ IT needs. In these tests, AVG CloudCare was the most comprehensive cloud-based endpoint security management solution - meeting all nine of the functionality criteria under review.

The comparative evaluation, which tested similar products from four of the leading security brands, was conducted on virtual machines to simulate the deployment and management of endpoint security for Microsoft Windows 7 clients. Tolly engineers examined a variety of management functions applicable to individual endpoints and to groups via policy updates.

In comparison with the competing platforms tested, the Tolly Group determined that AVG CloudCare currently offers the most comprehensive management functionality including its easy-to-use, intuitive user interface; seamless, integrated “push” install; customizable alerts and pre-defined reports; quarantine management via cloud console; ability to temporarily enable/disable endpoint security services; wake-on-LAN and complete remote control.

In conducting these tests, Tolly Group concluded that while a move to “the cloud” does have a state-of-the-art aura to it, there remain some considerable gaps in management functionality amongst some of the current offerings. They concluded that the AVG CloudCare solution provided the most comprehensive set of management functions among the solutions evaluated.

“From our testing, we found AVG CloudCare to be very easy to use and ideally suited to service providers who want an easy way to remotely manage their small business customer accounts,” said Kevin Tolly, founder of The Tolly Group. “From simple on/off services deployment, to keyless licensing, remote login and pre-set policies, it provides key features you need to manage even your smallest business customer efficiently and cost-effectively.”
