AVG Technologies defends internet users against personal online threats
The need for online security continues to extend from the personal computer to any connected device, putting sensitive information at greater risk. AVG Technologies addresses online threats to individual internet users with forward-thinking, personalised security solutions.
"Our target is to be known as the online security company that makes people's connected lives safe," says John Little, chief financial officer. "We think about devices, data and people because we are trying to protect the person using the internet."
AVG protects 182 million active users who rely on products from the company's broad portfolio across devices and user segments. Among the latest of these products is AVG Zen, which debuted in March as a free-to-download application that allows users to manage their online security across multiple devices from a single device. AVG Zen makes it easy for users to find and implement security solutions that suit their individual needs.
"The technology is something we've been doing since the early 1990s, in terms of making sure that we detect all possible data security threats," Little says. "It's something that we do very well, and it's a constant evolution to make sure that these threats are being addressed."
As this need continues to evolve alongside advances in technology, AVG has established partnerships that enable it to offer its protection services to more internet users. Partners such as Qualcomm in the United States and Samsung in South Korea value the strong AVG brand, which has become one of the world's leading names in online security.
In line with its global strategy, AVG seeks distribution partnerships across the region and welcomes institutional and retail investors as it aims to provide its personalised online security to more users in Asia.
