How to Avoid Being Pwned by the Internet, Researchers Find
Posted On July 19, 2021
The latest version of the popular anti-virus software is now available for free on all major mobile and desktop platforms, making it easier for users to protect themselves from viruses and other threats.
The mobile and cloud version of AVG Anti-Virus has been downloaded more than 100 million times worldwide, according to AVG, a global security company that has been one of the most successful antivirus companies in the past decade.
Its software is used by more than 1.5 billion people worldwide.
But that doesn’t mean AVG’s software has stopped being used, and that means there’s still a lot of software left to download and install.
And while it has a new version for Android, the company is still offering the old software on Macs and PCs.
“There’s a lot more to AV than just the antivirus software,” said Avanid CEO Scott Flanders.
“There’s the app ecosystem, the cloud, and the cloud infrastructure that makes AV really effective.
There’s a ton of additional software that you can install, install in a way that’s secure, and you’re protected.”
Flanders said the new version is designed to keep up with current threats and threats that are still evolving, like ransomware.
And that means that, as a company, AVG doesn’t have to update its software constantly.
“We’ve been continuously building out new features and new capabilities over the past year,” Flanders said.
“AV can keep up.”
The new version includes the same capabilities that AVG used in the previous version, including better protection against ransomware.
Flanders says AVG’s anti-malware software works on any device, even those that have no antivirus, and has become more widely available in the last few years.
“Our software has been around for quite a while, and we’ve got it in every device,” he said.
But Flanders says there are some improvements that AVG is making.
“The biggest thing that we’re working on is making it more secure and more secure in the cloud,” he added.
For example, it’s easier to upgrade your app to use AVG’s newer features, and users can choose whether they want to continue using AVG’s desktop antivirus or the cloud AV app.
Flands also noted that AVG’s app ecosystem has grown since its launch a year ago, with more than 40 million downloads of its apps.
“We have more apps now than we have ever had before,” Flander said.
And with the latest version, AVG has also added features to make it more useful on different devices.
For example, you can now manage all your antivirus apps and set their location.
AVG also added the ability to filter malicious websites for your app.
“I think the biggest thing we’ve done is make it easier to install and use,” Fries said.
