Thanks to smartphones, work can now take place beyond a desk. You can catch up with projects, colleagues, partners even while you’re on the go. Bringing such confidential information with you can be detrimental in the wrong hands, which is why Avast Business offers Small Office Protection for mobile. Android phones, in particular, are vulnerable to malware and theft. With Small Office Protection, you’ll have an anti-malware and anti-theft solution right in your pocket.
Does Small Office Protection support Android?
It’s both a pro and a con that Android is more flexible to use than iOS. This opens more opportunities for hackers to enter your device. If your work phone is an Android model, consider using Small Office Protection for Android. A single license can be installed on up to 10 devices. For example, a team of 5 people can install this on their phone and laptop.
You may not have considered buying a small business cybersecurity package in the past. It tends to be complex, and it may necessitate the services of a professional IT team. Small Office Protection requires a simple installation with no experience or maintenance needed. Its "set it and forget it" way of doing things not only makes it easy to secure your business but it’s light on the company’s budget, too.
Small Office Protection works with your business’s existing hardware. This is especially useful for organizations with employees enrolled in online banking. Now both you and your employees can process transactions on your bank’s mobile app with peace of mind, with your phone being safe from malware and viruses.
Does Small Office Protect have Avast Anti-Theft?
Small Office Protection program for Android retains some of the features from the Windows and Mac versions namely the next-gen anti-virus software and web shield. The rest of the features address issues that are unique to mobile users. In the event that your phone gets stolen, there are several features that can prevent your information from being acquired.
The App Lock feature locks apps with a PIN code, pattern, or fingerprint. In addition, the Photo Vault encrypts photos in a vault that only you can access. You can still hope to retrieve your phone with all the information in it using the Last Known Location feature. Similar to the Find My iPhone app on iOS, this feature tells you your phone’s last known location if the battery dies.
The app can even capture footage of the thief that stole your phone. Of course, an experienced thief can think ahead and swap out your sim card. Small Office Protection will detect this and register your phone as lost. Once declared lost, this app wipes out all the information on your phone using the Anti-Theft feature.
Stay in control anywhere you go
If your business operations include operating on mobile devices, specifically ones that run on Android, consider Small Office Protection by Avast. It protects personal and professional information stored on your phone. Thieves, hackers, and scammers will not be able to access the contents of your phone even if they get a hold of it. Best of all, you can hope to retrieve the phone using the app’s tracking system.
