AMSTERDAM & SAN FRANCISCO -- March 14, 2013

AVG Technologies (NYSE: AVG), the provider of Internet and mobile security to
146 million active users, has inaugurated a five-part webinar series for
managed service providers (MSPs) on the Channelnomics website. The series
covers the evolution of security as a service, and how managed service
providers can capitalize on the migration to scalable cloud services to
increase value to their customers and returns to their business.

The first webinar in the series, “Economics of Security and Managed Services,”
was conducted on March 12, and moderated by Channelnomics editor-at-large
Lawrence M. Walsh, a well-known and respected channel analyst and advocate.
Those who missed the first installment in the series will find it posted on
Channelnomics during the next week.

“Solution providers are hungry for actionable intelligence and guidance as
they continue to transform their businesses for the services era. Participants
on this and future webinars will gain real insights into how they can leverage
the power of cloud computing in delivering essential security services,” Walsh
said.

“The content provides something every small MSP team needs to know in order to
grow and prosper,” added AVG channel partner John Rutkowski of Bolder Designs,
who was a featured participant in the first webinar.

“Many managed service providers struggle with issues of talent, scalable
infrastructure and cash flow. Success requires an understanding of these and
the mechanics of the managed services business model. That’s what we’ve set
out to achieve with the Channelnomics webinar series,” said Luke Walling, VP
of Sales and Operations for AVG Technologies.

“That’s also why we designed AVG® CloudCare™, our cloud-based IT
administration platform, to help channel partners to quickly and easily
transition to an MSP model with a free-of-charge solution enabling them to
roll out “pay-as-you-go” services that make it easier for them to manage and
protect their small business customers.”

AVG CloudCare offers free remote management tools, one-click service user
activation plus easy policy deployment and automatic removal of older versions
of AV software help to save time and reduce the need for onsite visits –
allowing partners to serve even the smallest customer more profitably.
Additional benefits include sales alerts and one-click reporting to help
demonstrate partners’ added value.

The AVG CloudCare platform with AVG Remote IT, AVG AntiVirus and AVG Content
Filtering is available immediately via AVG reseller and managed service
partners in the US, UK and IR. AVG Remote IT is offered for free. For all AVG
CloudCare services, customers pay only for the services they use with a
convenient monthly billing option. To find out more and become an AVG
CloudCare partner, go to www.avg.com/cloudcare.

New installments in the AVG Channelnomics Webinar Security Services series are
scheduled to run May 7, July 9, Sept. 10 and Nov. 5, 2013. To register for the
