AVG Technologies has announced the availability of AVG Internet Security 2012, the latest edition of its market leading Internet security software. Adding 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,” says JR Smith, CEO of AVG Technologies. “AVG is more than just an antivirus company. We’re 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, utilising signature-based antivirus, heuristics and behavior-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 our users’ request for a fast and smooth content download while online, AVG Accelerator enhances user experience to provide peace of mind.
AVG Advisor constantly monitors the computer and proactively advises the user with available remedies and optimisation possibilities for various computer problems they may have.
“AVG has 98-million active customers who are constantly helping us improve our products. Their feedback was analysed and leveraged on the development of new products that better serve their needs while connected online,” says Yuval Ben-Itzhak, CTO of AVG Technologies.
“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’s customers made it clear there is nothing more frustrating than software that slows them down or gets in their way. They want to be fully protected without even noticing that an AV or IS product is installed. With AVG Internet Security 2012, AVG returns to its roots with a lean, mean solution that simply gets the job done. They are protected, not hampered.
AVG listens to its active users to help anticipate their needs, understand the complexity of their digital landscape and then simplify their security experience and supporting technology. AVG knows its customers need different products for different needs.
Customers now have more than one computer in their homes, they also have different digital access points, and are increasingly using their phones to access the Internet. AVG’s product range allows consumers and small businesses to choose a security technology specific to their needs or devices. From Free to Premium, from Windows PC to Android devices, there is an AVG product to protect users.
AVG 2012 reflects 20 years of trusted security experience. As the world of technology continues to change, AVG stands at the forefront of security innovation.
Users are AVG’s proof that they provide first class protection, and the customers are AVG’s partners in striving to improve with every new version. The company’s mission is to be the customers’ most trusted ally and advisor, enabling them to achieve their digital potential securely, safely and with no hassle.
