New version of AVG 8.0 attracted plenty of interest at CeBIT


AVG Technologies, a leading provider of Internet Security software, demonstrated the latest version of its award-winning product range at CeBIT last week. AVG 8.0 was officially release at the end of February and offers users an extensive range of new and improved protection capabilities, including real-time protection against web-borne threats.

AVG 8.0 is designed to protect users against current and future threats without impacting system performance, a task made significantly easier by the completely redesigned user interface and inclusion of the handy AVG Security Toolbar. “The new AVG Active Surf-Shield and Search-Shield, acquired through the purchase of Exploit Prevention Labs last year, proved particularly interesting for show visitors,” says Miloslav Korenko, marketing director of AVG Technologies. “Getting a definitive safety report about every website they plan to visit is very appealing to people.”

Hundreds of CeBIT visitors were also entertained by the unusual bartender’s show at the company’s stand. Cocktails named after AVG products were prepared right in front of show visitors and available for sampling on site. “The fresh taste of AVG cocktails was as good as the quality of AVG brand,” adds Korenko. “This year, CeBIT was exceptionally successful for AVG, and the excitement of bartender’s show matched the excitement surrounding the launch of AVG 8.0.”

AVG Technologies products now protect more than 70 million computer users around the world. Download provider CNet reports that AVG is one of the top 20 most downloaded programs of all time. AVG Technologies also recently won the Ruban d’Honneur award, which recognizes the company as one of Europe’s most innovative organizations. The company is also a finalist in this year’s European Business Awards.
