AVG Antivirus upgraded
Complementing the AVG 2013 Internet Security range is AVG PC TuneUp. This software keeps PCs running smoothly and at peak performance by cleaning the hard drive, fixing issues, preserving battery life on laptops, and eliminating freezing and crashing.
“The rapid uptake of new technologies is making the connected, online world a more complex place to navigate. Our customers want to focus on enjoying using the Internet with confidence and peace of mind that they are protected. So, it’s our responsibility to make security products that are simple and straightforward to use.” said JR Smith, CEO of AVG Technologies. “As a result, we’ve put simplicity, privacy, performance and our leading protection technology at the heart of AVG’s 2013 range of products, because we know those are the things our customers value the most in a security product.”
The improvements in the AVG 2013 products are in addition to new features introduced earlier this year, such as the active Do Not Track feature. AVG was among the first security solutions to support the new web privacy standard which gives users visibility and control over who can see their personal information and identity when they are online.
The AVG 2013 product portfolio for the PC includes AVG AntiVirus FREE, AVG AntiVirus, AVG Internet Security, AVG Premium Security and AVG PC TuneUp. The company’s mobile offerings includes AVG AntiVirus FREE for Android, AVG AntiVirus Pro for Android, and the AVG Family Safety products for iOS and Windows Phone. AVG’s 2013 offerings also complement recently launched AVG mobile security products to provide users with protection across smartphones as well as PCs.
