AVG Business Edition 2013 Ready for SMB Market

AVG Business Edition 2013 Ready for SMB Market

- Security software continues to offer quality business protection minus the complexity -

AUCKLAND and AMSTERDAM – 24 January 2013 – AVG Technologies AU today announced AVG Internet Security Business Edition (ISBE) 2013, the latest iteration of its hugely successful security software targeted primarily at small businesses.

AVG ISBE 2013 builds on the key features brought to life in the 2012 edition and offers additional enhancements such as:

• AVG Self Defense - an additional security layer that helps to deny unauthorised attempts by malware to modify, rename or delete any AVG file, key, process or driver
• Rogue WiFi Guard – helps to avoid rogue WiFi access points used by hackers. AVG alerts you when your PC tries to access an unknown WiFi network.
• Windows 8 compatibility

Other benefits of AVG Business Edition 2013 include:

• Data protection – help to prevent your data being corrupted with AVG Firewall, AVG Anti-Virus, AVG Anti-Spyware, AVG Resident Shield and AVG Smart Anti Rootkit
• Speed of scanning – independent analysts, Tolly, named the product as one of the fastest performing products in the market
• Safer surfing – AVG LinkScanner, AVG Anti-Virus and AVG Online Shield help protect your employees in their online activity
• Value for money – by keeping all the essential features in, and leaving all of the heavy enterprise features out, you get a safe, affordable and practical solution for your SMB network

Michael McKinnon, Security Advisor at AVG, said: “In today’s economy small business owners have to work harder and smarter than ever before, and have every right to expect technology to lighten their load. So much of running a business depends on IT. It is vital therefore that their security solution should combine agility, usability and efficiency. These are companies that don’t necessarily have a standalone IT resource so management needs to be as easy as possible. We are proud to be offering one of the most SMB-focused security solutions in its class.”

Despite challenging economic conditions, SMEs remain the backbone of the New Zealand economy, accounting for 99 percent of all businesses and 50.6 percent of the economy’s total output, according to the Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment.
