The newly launched AVG 2012 suite of security solutions might be the one to take the user base over the 100 million mark.
According to JR Smith, CEO of AVG Technologies, AVG is already being leveraged by in excess of 98 million people, with the 2012 line of products taking advantage of the power offered by the community in order to protect computers.
Available to customers in 170 countries worldwide and in no less than 24 languages, AVG 2012 comes in a number of flavors, including the traditional free edition designed to offer a basic level of protection to users.
Customers can also opt to pay a subscription of $54.99 for AVG Internet Security 2012, $39.99 for AVG Anti-Virus 2012 or $69.99 for AVG Premium Security 2012.
AVG 2012 is advertised as offering users a 50% smaller download size and better installation performance. The solution’s increase in speed is however not limited to the deployment process.
“At a lean 65 MB, the file size of AVG Internet Security 2012 comes in well below that of our three closest competitors despite adding 127 new features. AVG 2012 also improves upon our last edition by speeding up full disk scans by up to 50 percent and browser launches by up to 10 percent. AVG 2012 is lighter, faster and smaller than any previous AVG product,” Smith stated.
According to the security outfit, AVG 2012 also loads faster, uses 20% less memory and occupies 45% less disk space than its predecessor.
“AVG 2012 also continuously looks for performance improvements based on how you use your machine. If your PC seems sluggish, the new AVG Advisor feature will tell you where the problem is. There’s also the new AVG Accelerator, which optimizes computer connectivity to deliver content faster than you’ve ever seen. You’ll spend less time waiting for videos and other content-rich files to download and more time enjoying them,” Smith added.
