Public beta available for AVG 8.0

AVG UK And Ireland : 17 January, 2008  (New Product)
Rootkit detection and improved ICQ protection and web filtering feature in AVG 8.0 now available for public beta testing.
Grisoft, developer of the AVG family of security software products, has released the second beta edition of AVG 8.O for Windows for public testing. AVG 8.0 offers a completely new multi-threaded scanning engine that combines anti-virus and anti-spyware while retaining the product's signature small footprint and scanning efficiency. Additional protection is provided in the form of safe searching and safe surfing protection acquired through the recent purchase of Exploit Prevention Labs, rootkit detection, basic security for MSN and ICQ instant messaging, and detection of malware-infected files on websites. Windows users interested in participating in this public beta can register and download the software.

"This new version of AVG significantly extends the protection available to our users", said Karel Obluk, chief technology officer for AVG. "We believe that this additional online protection, along with the redesigned user interface, will provide simpler, more effective protection against today's Internet threats- real-time protection in a real-time world."

Chief research officer Roger Thompson added; "We're looking forward to seeing early user feedback on this second public beta, and to providing users with the best possible protection against malware and cybercrime whenever they're online."

Through its public beta process, AVG is able to test new functionality in a wide range of real-world environments in addition to its development and research labs, thanks to the company's 60+ million users. Beta test participants also benefit by directly providing feedback on new products before their release to the general population.
