AMSTERDAM and SAN FRANCISCO, Dec. 10, 2013
AMSTERDAM and SAN FRANCISCO, Dec. 10, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --AVG Technologies
N.V. (NYSE: AVG), the provider of Internet and mobile security, privacy and
optimization to 172 million active users, today launched a limited time offer
for small businesses. To enable a sustainable, cost efficient migration path,
this special promotion offers the AVG CloudCare™ Online Backup cloud-based
small business protection platform free to existing Backup Exec.cloud
"At the end of November Symantec announced plans to close down its Backup
Exec.cloud service," said Mike Foreman, General Manager, SMB, AVG
Technologies. "By taking advantage of this special offer, those customers
affected will immediately receive alternative protection through AVG CloudCare
with Online Backup. They will also receive full credit for their remaining
Backup Exec.cloud licenses as well as free managed AntiVirus for all of their
backed up endpoints."
Under the terms, AVG will offer AVG Online Backup for the remainder of the
term of the existing Symantec Backup exec.cloud license(s), provided partners
commit to giving customers a paid subscription for the same period to begin at
the expiration of the term. Further, AVG will grant AVG AntiVirus licenses
for one year, equal to the number of licenses redeemed in the Symantec Backup
exec.cloud promotion. For example, if 100 Symantec Backup exec.cloud licenses
are honored under this promotion for AVG Online Backup, 100 licenses of AVG
AntiVirus for one year will be granted to the partner.
This promotion is effective immediately until 11:59 p.m. EST on March 31st,
2014. For more information on this offer, please call 855-254-6989.
AVG's small business security portfolio is comprised of a worldwide network of
more than 10,000 partners. Its pedigree in this area makes it ideally
positioned to help smaller IT and managed services providers (MSPs) harness
low cost, cloud-based tools so they can transition into a fully-fledged
managed services business.

platform offering resellers a new way to implement and manage services such as
antivirus, content filtering, email security and online backup services for
their small business customers. In June this year it added AVG Managed
Workplace®, an open eco-system Remote Management & Monitoring (RMM) tool.
