AVG Anti Virus Professional Multilicense
can protect not only individual computers but is designed
to protect small and medium sized networks as well. Depending
on the multi-license you buy, you can install and use the
program on several computers (standalone or linked in the
network). When a Anti Virus Professional Multilicense of AVG
is purchased there is included a special software utility
for network administrators to use on site installations, updates
Site installation is used for
installing AVG on individual network stations without having
to use the install media on each. The administrator creates
an install script, which can later be used for automatic setup
to local workstations from the server.
When AVG is started for the first time it registers with the
communication directory - every station is given a unique
id, used in communication with the administrator.
Network update needs a network
installation. It can be done in two ways:
Using the communication directory -
The administrator saves the update file in the communication
directory, which is checked by all local AVG installations
on start-up (using the AVG Control Center). If the update
is newer than the current program then an update is run automatically.
From the Intranet/Internet - if a station is on a network
where a communication directory cannot be used, it is possible
to set update from your own URL (Intranet, Internet), obviously
you can use the Automatic Update feature.
communication - AVGADMIN for Windows
AVGADMIN is a communication utility
program, which enables remote communication between AVG installations
on a network. Administrators can query an AVG station for
information about last update, tests run, results of those
tests and virus infections as well as configure the AVG program
itself. Administrators can also prohibit functions in AVG
on stations (forbid advanced mode, the creation of rescue
disk, the modification of AVG settings etc.)
Stations can be defined into groups. AVGADMIN is password
protected to prevent unauthorized use. more...
