AVG (AU/NZ) Pty Ltd, the Australian, New Zealand and South Pacific distributor of the AVG Internet and mobile security software, has announced the availability of AVG Internet Security 2012.
With new protection technologies, computer performance enhancements and content download acceleration, AVG 2012 is lighter, faster and smaller than any previous AVG product.
“Ease of use, value and trust equal peace of mind,” said Lloyd Borrett, Security Evangelist at AVG (AU/NZ). “AVG is more than just an anti-virus company. It’s a secure, community-driven digital ecosystem dedicated to helping consumers protect themselves and the things they care about the most. Computers and devices have become an extension of every individual at work and at play. In today’s world, we’re not just securing machines. We’re securing people’s digital life, or as we like to say: Providing Peace of Mind to the Connected World.”
In addition to AVG’s multi-layered protection using signature-based anti-virus, heuristics and behaviour-based threats detection, AVG 2012 comes with the all-new AVG Accelerator and AVG Advisor features as well as additional protection technologies.
AVG Accelerator optimises file and video downloads on selected sites to minimise waiting time. Responding to users’ request for a fast and smooth content download while online, AVG Accelerator enhances the user experience to provide peace of mind.
AVG Advisor constantly monitors the computer and proactively advises about available remedies and optimisation possibilities for various computer problems the user may have.
“AVG has 98 million active customers who are constantly helping us improve our products,” said Yuval Ben-Itzhak, CTO of AVG Technologies. “We analysed their feedback and used it to develop new products that better serve their needs while connected online. We enhanced AVG Internet Security 2012 as a result of listening to our users who asked for peace of mind, better security against threats and an optimised computing performance.”
AVG Internet Security 2012 comes with a 50% smaller download size and faster install time and 10% faster load time.
Complementing this new product release, AVG Internet Security 2012 also includes the integrated security firewall and AVG LinkScanner, which provides users with peace of mind when browsing, shopping and banking.
