Advanced Threat Protection: Rely on AVG’s Award-Winning Anti-Virus Software and Malware ProtectionWhen it comes to advanced threat protection, businesses need to leverage the enterprise technology that offers the latest cybersecurity solutions to defend against sophisticated cyberthreats targeting your sensitive data.

That’s where AVG’s antivirus software options come in, offering world-class protection against continuously evolving malware and hackers.

“The threats that now target people and families’ personal and financial data on PCs are constantly growing, both in sophistication and speed,” said Ondrej Vlcek, a cybersecurity expert and CTO of Avast, the company behind AVG. “With this in mind, we want to ensure that our AVG products provide real-time security, a scan for both malware and performance issues, and even catch malicious downloads before they reach a user’s PC.”

AVG Scores As a “Top-Rated Product”

The flagship AVG Antivirus product was recently recognized as a “Top Rated Product” by the independent test lab, AV-Comparatives, known for rigorous testing of security software.

The AVG antivirus software came away with top awards in all six tests it underwent. Reviewers specifically pointed to AVG’s clear interface.

“One of the key features that caught our attention was AVG’s ease of use and operability,” said Andreas Clementi, the founder and CEO of AV-Comparatives. “Security threats on PCs could impact anyone, and so it is important that the products in place to protect people against such threats be easy to set up and use.”

Top 10 AVG Safety Features

For businesses, AVG offers a range of protection, resulting in comprehensive safety for the entire IT ecosystem — network, hardware and data.

Key features, which update automatically, include:

  1. Antivirus and Ransomware Protection: Detects and removes malware and viruses from PCs and laptops
  2. Identity Protection: Protects your identity from spyware and adware that track personal information
  3. Firewall: Helps stop spam, viruses, hackers and malware
  4. Data Safe: Encrypts and stores valuable company documents and other files onto a password-protected virtual disk on a PC
  5. Online Shield: Protects employees and devices from harmful downloads and other online threats
  6. Cyber Capture: Sends unrecognized files to the company’s threat labs to be checked in real-time to identify threats
  7. Smart Scanner: Scans computers when your employees aren’t working to avoid disruptions
  8. File Shredder: Securely deletes files to help prevent unintended recovery
  9. Link Scanner: Scans any link on the internet, including those on Facebook and Twitter (This works by checking webpages before they open in a browser and displaying a safety rating in the search engine results — so your employees can surf the web with more confidence.)
  10. Email Protection: Scans and checks emails for suspicious attachments and links, including anti-spam and anti-phishing features

The most recent ratings add to hundreds of top marks the company has garnered since it began in 1991, which Vlcek said “supports our mission to protect our users and their families and give them peace of mind whenever they connect online.”
