AVG (AU/NZ) Pty Ltd, distributor of the AVG range of Anti-Virus, Internet Security and safe web surfing software, will be demonstrating AVG Internet Security 8.0 at CeBIT Australia 2008, 20-22 May.
Released in February 2008, the latest version of AVG's flagship Internet Security suite for consumers, small and medium business, plus enterprises can be bought as a single user licence, in multi-licence packs for up to 10 PCs, or in the recently announced Network Edition version which can handle thousands of network-connected desktops, servers and notebooks, providing centralised deployment, configuration and reporting, plus remote administration.
AVG (AU/NZ) can be found on stand P50 in the IT Security Expo at CeBIT. Lloyd Borrett, Marketing Manager, will be available on the stand to talk about AVG 8.0 and the new hidden threats such as web exploits, drive-by downloads, phishing and rootkits.
Lloyd said: "The new LinkScanner safe surf and safe search technology in AVG Internet Security 8.0 enables us to offer the only true real-time protection against web threats on the market today; the type of threats traditional firewall, anti-virus and Internet security products cannot stop.
Real-time detection of these threats is essential, as poisoned web pages may only be infective for a matter of hours, after which the perpetrator moves on to another site. We believe this will prove particularly interesting for show visitors. Getting a definitive safety report about every web site they plan to visit is very appealing to people."
In addition to the patent pending LinkScanner web exploit protection, AVG Internet Security 8.0 offers a number of other significant new benefits. These include faster scanning performance through a multi-threaded scanning engine that leverages the latest multi-core hardware; protection against rootkits and system intrusion; security for MSN and ICQ instant messaging; and detection of infected file downloads.
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
