PR Newswire


AMSTERDAM and SAN FRANCISCO, Jan. 16, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --AVG Technologies
N.V. (NYSE: AVG), the provider of Internet and mobile security, privacy and
optimization solutions to 172 million active users, today announced the
immediate availability of an enhanced service module that now integrates AVG
CloudCare™ Online Backup (OLB) within the AVG Managed Workplace® remote
monitoring & management (RMM) tool for managed services providers (MSPs).

The new expanded AVG CloudCare Managed Workplace service module gives MSPs the
ability to remotely monitor their customers' online backup procedures from
within a single dashboard and proactively intercede where protection is
missing or inadequate. In consequence, partners are able to manage a broader
range of IT services through the same, single pane of glass and ensure more of
their systems are fully protected than ever before.

Features and benefits for MSPs of the new integrated AVG CloudCare Online
Backup service module within AVG Managed Workplace include:

  oConsolidated monitoring & management of AVG CloudCare Online Backup
    status, alerts and reports from multiple customer accounts through a
    single pane of glass
  oEasy provision of ultra-secure encrypted protection for customers' data
    against hardware failure, loss or theft
  oAutomatic detection of AVG CloudCare agents on customer machines for
    seamless integration of new customers with existing AVG services
  oConvenient one-click management for creating automated backup schedules to
    the cloud or locally according to customer requirements
  oDistinctive way of treating all data backed up the same in contrast to
    some solutions that charge a premium for backing up Microsoft® Exchange or
    SQL servers
  oCapacity to restore customer data from a single file to a whole directory,
    quickly and easily
  oFlexibility to automate time-consuming administration tasks, such as mass
    policy updates, using customizable scripts.
  oUnified pay-as-you-use billing and no per-device license fees
  oSimple reporting to help view invoices, license summaries for paid, trial,
    deployed or deleted services for all customers

"This enhancement to the service module for AVG CloudCare and AVG Managed
Workplace is further evidence of our commitment to delivering a fully
integrated platform of trust that gives our partners everything they need to
run business efficiently while keeping down their administration costs," said
Mike Foreman, General Manager, SMB, AVG Technologies. "We have been working
hard to bring together quickly all elements of the AVG business portfolio so
that MSPs can have a consolidated, cross-network view of all their customers'
systems via a single pane of glass."

AVG's small business security portfolio is supported by a worldwide network of
more than 10,000 partners. Its pedigree in this area makes it ideally
positioned to help smaller IT and MSPs harness low cost, cloud-based tools so
they can transition into fully-fledged managed services businesses. In October
2012 AVG introduced AVG CloudCare™, a cloud-based administration platform
offering resellers a new way to implement and manage services such as
antivirus, content filtering and email security services for their small
business customers. In June 2013 it added AVG Managed Workplace®, an open
eco-system Remote Management & Monitoring (RMM) tool. AVG's vision is to make
the lives of MSPs and their small business customers as easy as possible,
regardless of whether staff are in the office, at home, or on the road.
