No, Avast Free Antivirus is not allowed to be used in a business enviroment.

From Avast EULA: "2.1.2. In the case of all other Solutions, including Avast Free Antivirus, AVG Free Antivirus, CCleaner Free and all other Solutions for which you are not required to pay a subscription fee or other price either to obtain the Solution or to continue using the Solution after a trial period (each, a “Consumer Solution”), by a natural person, or members of his household for personal, noncommercial purposes. For the avoidance of doubt, no Consumer Solution is provided or licensed for use by any: (i) natural person for commercial purposes; or (ii) business, company, government entity, nongovernmental organization or other not-for-profit entity, or educational institution."

So, if you want to protect your server and all the Windows 10 clients and be able to manage them from the management console you have to buy a licenses of Avast Business for every device.

Thank you for the response. So basically I will then just have the business version on the server for now until we decide to buy licenses for the windows 10 machines. We are busy building a network for the company and antivirus is one of the things we are looking at. So for future reference I wanted to find out this info before making the purchase.

Contact your local reseller, they can advise on current promotions and volume discounts you qualify for.
