There are few weeks that go by when someone here in the forums, somewhere on the Internet, a friend, neighbor or acquaintance doesn’t ask about the best anti-virus program. I know from personal experience that everyone has their personal favorites for a variety of reasons. I am personally partial to AVG since during the past four years of using the freebie, I have never, repeat never, had an infection on my system or any system which I had installed the software.

So last week when my bud from CA., Goose, sent out an email to myself and another friend, Bugsy, the answer was simple. Get AVG dude. Today I read a press release in which AVG was award two awards for excellence. According to the release it states that:

Amsterdam, April 21 2009- AVG Technologies, a leading developer of Internet security software, announced today that a pair of its security solutions won prestigious 2009 Global Product Excellence Customer Trust Awards. The awards are sponsored by the Info Security Products Guide. These awards recognize products that offer the highest levels of security to consumers and businesses. Winners were announced during the RSA Security Conference in San Francisco. AVG was one of the rare companies receiving recognition in multiple categories.

AVG Internet Security won the top Security Solution for Consumers. AVG Internet Security for home users delivers comprehensive protection against viruses, spyware, identity theft, and poisoned web pages. It protects against all types of malware that can threaten an individual’s personal information.

AVG Internet Security Network Edition won the top Security Solution for Enterprise (Small and SOHO). It provides comprehensive internet security for a company’s workstations, notebooks, and file servers. Small and SOHO companies have limited IT resources. With AVG providing security, they can focus on other business critical activities.

I do recommend AVG to anyone who needs a reliable software program to protect their system against the bad stuff.

Comments welcome.
