PR Newswire


AMSTERDAM and SAN FRANCISCO, Dec. 12, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- AVG Technologies
N.V. (NYSE: AVG), the provider of Internet and mobile security, privacy and
optimization to 172 million active users, today announces the availability of
AVG AntiVirus for Mac® to help protect MacBook®, iMac® and Mac Pro® users
running OS X Mavericks (10.9) and Mountain Lion (10.8) from malware.

AVG AntiVirus for Mac is built on a powerful security engine that works in
real time to detect and remove viruses and spyware that could infect your Mac
or be passed on to your PC or mobile devices. This is the latest product in
AVG's comprehensive range of free online security products for devices running
on today's most popular platforms. The latest Mac product from AVG, AVG
Cleaner™ for Mac, was released in November and currently holds the high
average user rating of 4 stars on the Apple Store.

"It's a popular belief that Mac computers are invincible," said David
Ferguson, General Manager, Consumer & Mobile, AVG Technologies, "But they
never were – it's just been a matter of OS X not reaching the popularity that
Windows® historically had. Thanks to the advent of iPhones® and the iPad®, the
Mac platform has scaled exponentially, and that fact alone makes it a viable
target for attackers. We've extended our award-winning AntiVirus product range
to cover OS X and Mountain Lion because our customers are our priority and we
aim to protect them, whatever device or system they choose to use."

Free AVG AntiVirus for Mac protects OS X Mavericks and Mountain Lion from
viruses and spyware and delivers:

  oResident Shield: AVG's Resident Shield technology runs quietly in the
    background and scans every file users open, copy and save automatically
    quickly without draining resources, so the user won't even notice that
    we're there.
  oTriple protection: AVG's award winning detection technology scans for Mac,
    Windows®, and Android®-based malware. Users can feel safer knowing that
    their Mac is protected and that they don't transfer malware to their other
    devices or share them with friends or co-workers.
  oDrag & drop functionality: Users can run a thorough scan of their entire
    Mac or drag and drop files or folders and scan them individually.
  oAutomatic Updates: To stay ahead of the growing number of Mac threats, AVG
    is constantly innovating and evolving the detection methods. Updates to
    AVG's virus database get pushed to users automatically, so their Mac
    protection is always up-to-date.
