Avast for Mac on a business computer?
« on: August 01, 2012, 01:53:59 PM »
I have been using Avast Home edition on my personal computers since 2003. I started a new job a couple of months ago and I got a MacBook Pro. I now use ClamXav but I want to change it to Avast for Mac.

My question is: Am I allowed to use Avast for Mac on my business computer? I am wondering this since I can only find a free Avast for Mac version and not one for a business.

I hope someone knows how it works because I want to do the right thing.

Best Regards
Mathias Karlsson

Thanks for the reply Asyn :-).

I now discovered that my message was a bit unclear but.
My concern is regarding if I am allowed to use Avast for Mac
for free on my business computer.

Maybe the answer is still yes?

Best Regards

You can not use the free version for commercial purposes. It is clearly stated in the license agreement. See section 2 - "Permitted Use of the Software"

I am wondering this since I can only find a free Avast for Mac version and not one for a business.

A business version of the product will come soon.

Thank you tumic for the answer.

Then I will wait for the business version, so I can do it the right way :-)

It would have been easier if it was clearly stated on the website that Avast for Mac is only free for
individuals and a business version will be coming soon.

Thanks for your input Tumic, I stand corrected.

Interesting is that it was announced otherwise here: http://www.avast.com/de-de/pr-avast-free-antivirus-for-mac-tops-cnet-download.com-in-3-days

Quote
avast! Free Antivirus für Mac enthält die gleiche ressourcenschonende, preisgekrönte und viel gelobte Antiviren- und Anti-Spyware-Engine wie avast! Free Antivirus Version 7. Es ist für alle Benutzer völlig kostenlos – dies gilt für Heimanwender ebenso wie für Unternehmen.

So, if it isn't true (anymore..??), someone should correct that article..!! ;)

The (Mac) business version is definitely available now. If you can not find it on the avast! web page (me either), than send an email to our support, they will help you to get it.

That's very strange. I've only just seen this reply - but in the meantime I've checked the Avast site regularly for an announcement or even a mention on there of a mac business version. Why is it hidden?
