Beta Version of AVG Threat Labs Available Free to Internet Community

AVG UK And Ireland : 03 September, 2010  (New Product)
Information portal for threat analysis on suspect internet sites due to be launched at the end of the month with beta version now available
AVG Technologies has announced a limited public beta test of its new online tool, AVG Threat Labs. Designed to help consumers combat criminal elements on the Web, Threat Labs is an innovative online information portal that merges the quantitative Web threat detection data that AVG routinely collects from its almost 100 million users with data from AVG's LinkScanner technology.

AVG users with LinkScanner already installed are protected in real-time from sites containing malware. Threat Labs complements this software by enabling the user to type in the URL of a specific Web site to gather more information. Users not currently using AVG software still benefit from visiting Threat Labs as this unique tool provides an instant and complete safety analysis of a Web site including detection statistics, a detection timeline, an analysis of linked sites and a detection map. AVG's Threat Labs augments AVG's existing free, downloadable anti-virus software and enhances the company's unique "people powered protection" approach to security.

"Web threats are constantly evolving and it is our mission to provide consumers with the resources they need to not be victims of Internet crimes," said JR Smith, Chief Executive Officer of AVG Technologies. "What really excites me about Threat Labs is that it is all about what makes AVG a different security software company to our competitors because it is based on people powered protection. From the standard AV tools and malware detection, to more cutting edge resources like threat labs and our new social media tools, AVG is committed to a product line that is effective against the risks we understand today and the threats that are evolving as we speak."

The full consumer launch and availability of AVG's Threat Labs is slated for late September 2010. It will be part of a set of tools for the AVG Internet Security suite to help consumers more safely navigate the murky waters of social networks as well as resources such as Threat Labs that bring together the quantitative data with reputational data to empower consumers on the Web. AVG's product suite will create a global army of citizens, nearly 100 million strong, working together to thwart Internet crime.
