Title: Alpha version of the new on-premise Avast Business Management Console
Post by: Martin Svoboda on March 09, 2017, 09:25:36 PM
Hello everybody,

I’m glad that we can share an exciting news with you - today we are launching the alpha version of the new on-premise Avast Business Management Console. Together with the latest AV engine, the entire solution combines the best from exAVG and exAvast.

An ideal solution for companies who need to manage their protection of devices from one central place.

What can you expect?


Known bugs

Where to get installer?
Please note: This is not an antivirus installer. You are about to install a solution for management of your devices,
a management console through which you will be able to download and install the antivirus.


Step1. Choose a console type
Step2. Get your trial license
Step3. Sign-up to the console and upload the trial license


We would appreciate any feedback from your side, not only obvious bugs but also any comments regarding things that doesn't make sense from your point of view, or any suggestion for improvements.

One last thing we want to share a little secret with you - this version of the Management Console will be available also as a Cloud version.

Thank you and looking forward to your feedback.
Martin

The agent asks for update even when an updated version is installed (see picture).

If you installed an AV Client before Tuesday 14.03.2017, could you, please, reinstall it? Due to a bug in an Alpha AV version, VPS and Program updates won't work properly. However, during Alpha/Beta phase, the Console and the Client will be both reporting that a new Program version is available (your screenshot). This is expected behavior, because we don't support a standard release information for Alpha/Beta builds. It will be fixed once a final version is released.

We are trying this new version as we have to have windows 10 functional on windows 10 for mass rollout this summer, Case number 129166.

So I created a test server, installed and took me a long time where to find how I get the workstation installler so we can incorporate inot our SCCM windows 10 test image.

Going into add device I can see the download the installer option but every time I try I get error, sorry we cannot do this. Please see attachment.

Given the time constraint here we need to test this ASAP, so either I am doing something wrong or you need to provide a workable installer for workstations for an SCCM image.

We need an option to export reports to PDF, Word or Excel and we need to customize them, at least, with the customer logo.

Thanks for your feedback. Bugs will be fixed in final version and all feature suggestions will be considered. The ability to export report is already on the plan for future releases.

You mean, whether we already have a date for the final release? If so, then yes, we have a plan but it is internal information - hopefully, you understand. However the "waiting time" won't be long ;)
