AVG Technologies at Insight UK

WHY AVG?

AVG is one of the world's most recognisable names in online threat protection, with millions of people around the world relying on us to keep them safe.

Threats today go way beyond viruses and adapt quickly to new security measures in a desperate attempt to stay one step ahead of us. They're still trying.

HOW DO WE DO IT?

AVG 2011 combines multiple layers of protection to keep your digital life safe.

LEADING WEB PROTECTION

AVG LinkScanner® comes with all our security products, keeping you protected from threats that can be hidden on any type of website.

These threats rarely stick around for more than 24 hours. That's why LinkScanner® actively checks web pages in real time before you click that link. LinkScanner® also places safety ratings next your search results, allowing you to assess the safety of a given site before you go there. In AVG 2011, LinkScanner® has been enhanced to offer its best detection rate ever.

POWERED BY OUR COMMUNITY

AVG Community Protection Network is new for 2011 and is like an online neighborhood watch, helping everyone in the online community to protect each other. Information about the latest threats is collected from customers who choose to participate in the product improvement program and shared with the community to make sure everyone receives the best possible protection.

AVG Protective Cloud Technology is also new for 2011. We constantly carry out tests 'in the cloud' over the Internet to identify the latest emerging threats. Then we develop solutions and update AVG on your computer in near real time. AVG carries out these tests on our systems so that you aren't interrupted yet benefit from the most complete protection.

SOCIAL NETWORKING PROTECTION

AVG's Social Networking Protection is new for 2011 and unique to AVG. As social network usage increases each day, so does the potential for targeted threats. Now links that are exchanged within Facebook and MySpace are automatically checked in real time so that you, your friends, your company, and your employees are safe. And there's no need to configure; AVG Social Networking protection is activated automatically as soon as AVG is installed.

PROTECT YOUR IDENTITY

AVG Identity Protection™ is now part of all our security products.

AVG Identity Protection™ is the outer layer of security, keeping your personal information safe by shielding your passwords, credit card numbers, and other digital valuables from prying eyes. AVG Identity Protection™ uses the latest behavioural technologies to identify software that behaves strangely and stop it before it can do any damage.

ALL AVG PRODUCTS INCLUDE PROTECTION THAT IS:

  • One step ahead of online criminals
  • Hassle-free and stays out of your way
  • Powered by a global network of highly-experienced researchers
