Avira Launches Unified Security Management Dashboard


On Wednesday, Avira launched Online Essentials, a new platform that allows deployment of the installation procedure for the company products. The service works for all supported computer devices and also includes smartphones and tablets. Online Essentials unifies management of the Avira security products, Secure Backup data synchronization service, and Pilot, a new remote support tool in a web dashboard. Users have to register for the service and then they can use the online console to send the download links to the desired devices. On phones, access to the download link is done through an SMS sent to the handset, while on the other devices the URL is sent via email. At the moment, the service is available in English and German only, with other languages to be rolled out over the next months. Also, it will be integrated with every Avira product download.
