Avast Acquires Secure.me
By acquiring the privacy company, Avast gains new core technologies
The technologies brought to the table by Secure.me – including ones that focus on advanced content inspection, social media privacy, and mobile device application security – allow Avast to further enhance its products.
In addition, Avast will also benefit from Secure.me’s Facebook security application, which uses sophisticated algorithms to identify actions that could impact users’ privacy, security and reputation.
“We were always fans of the solutions and underlying technologies that secure.me has developed and brought to market,” added Avast CTO Ondrej Vlcek, “and now we’re working at light-speed to fully integrate them into both our free and premium offerings, so our couple hundred million users can get all of the great benefits these capabilities deliver.”
