    Hi,

    I'm trying to convince my boss to buy an AV and stop using AVG free since we got infected many times...

    So, are there any AVs that are:

    1)cheap;
    2)have support in portuguese;
    3)updates frequently;
    4)outlook protection.

    Your best bet is F-Prot.

    10 license costs US$50.00 .

    Hi,

    I talked to my boss about buying f-prot and he asked me to show him why f-prot is much better than avg.

    i said that it has better detection, updates more frequently, etc. but he is still not convinced.

    Can someone tell me other arguments that i can tell him?

    Show him :

    http://www.virusbtn.com and compare Grisoft with F-Prot.

    F-Prot is a lovely AV, and 10 licenses for 50 dollarz is a bargain!

    I'm not sure I follow this completely. Are you saying that your boss wants to buy AVG Pro for more money than the same number of F-Prot licenses, when F-Prot has superior detection capabilities?

    The reason I say AVG Pro is, of course, AVG Free can not be used in a business environment. It is only free for home and non-commercial use.

    If it came down to buying AVG Pro versus F-Prot, no question in my mind, F-Prot is the winner.

    Then you have your argument to convince him. That is not allowed.
