AVG Announces the Availability of AVG Zen™

So many devices, so little time - AVG makes security simpler in today's hyper-connected world

AMSTERDAM AND SAN FRANCISCO, March 31, 2014 /CNW/ - AVG Technologies N.V. (NYSE: AVG), The Online Security Company™ for 177 million active users, today announced the availability of AVG Zen™ in Canada, Germany, Spain, the United Kingdom and the United States of America. AVG Zen is a new application for Windows® PCs and Android™ smartphones and tablets that significantly simplifies the way in which users can control their protection, performance and privacy settings. With its ease of discovery and deployment across consumers' connected devices, AVG Zen helps people make quick and informed decisions from one place, making it simple to keep their devices and data protected in a hyper-connected world.

Yuval Ben-Itzhak, Chief Technology Officer, AVG Technologies explained, "The idea behind AVG Zen is to make our online lives easier. With more connected devices around us than ever before, the challenge of keeping everything protected from theft, free of malware, optimized and private becomes more complex. This is why we are introducing AVG Zen. With AVG Zen, users can see at a glance the real-time status of all the connected devices and take proactive, corrective measures as required. As our life is becoming more and more connected with new technologies like wearables and smart sensors, I can even see a future where AVG Zen might alert me when my child becomes ill or my home alarm stops working."

While technology has made it easier to do many things, whether booking a holiday or sorting out family finances, the pressure on people to make sure their devices are protected, performing at their best and kept private, has never been higher. AVG Zen gives consumers a quick view of changes they could make to tackle these everyday issues, such as showing some of the steps a parent could take to maintain their child's privacy settings on a tablet, simple ways to make sure the antivirus solution on a smartphone is always up to date, or suggestions on how to maximize the battery life on the family laptop.

AVG Zen is available for core products, including AVG® Internet Security, AVG PC TuneUp®, AVG PrivacyFix™, AVG Antivirus for Android™, AVG Cleaner for Android™, AVG PrivacyFix for Android™ and AVG Zen Admin for Android ™ apps from Google Play™. The AVG Zen application displays a circle that changes color and level of completeness according to the level of security for each of the focus areas of protection, performance, privacy and support. Users simply log on to their AVG account to start the application and click through to view the status of their own devices. They can also send email invites to add other devices to their AVG Zen network.

Quick steps to getting AVG Zen
1. Download AVG Zen for free online from either www.avg.com/zen or the Google Play app store https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.avg.zen

While currently available for monitoring only, AVG Zen users can look forward to additional functionality later this year that, among other things, will enable them to update devices remotely with the appropriate AVG protection, performance and privacy services.
