Now this Anitvirus has officially entered India, with none other than Milestone Interactive Group, the same people who've brought you PlayStation products for years. It's a business tie-up with AVG Technologies, who claim over 80 million users in 167 countries.
Mr. Jayant Sharma, Chairman and CEO – Milestone Interactive Group, says "We have been in the interactive software business for over a decade and are market leaders in this field. Given the rapidly growing installed base of computers & Internet users in India, the time seemed just right for us to expand into the ICT security space.

Mr Peter Baxter, Vice President – Business Development, AVG Technologies, added, "With Indian internet usage continuing to grow at a phenomenal rate, hitting 50 million users in 09, its inevitable the cybercriminals will, if not already, start to pay particular attention to Indian consumers.
