Avast for Business Boasts Strong Early
Redwood City, Calif. April 21, 2015 – Avast Software, maker of the most trusted mobile and PC security in the world, today reported strong early adoption of its new product: Avast for Business, the industry’s first free, easy to use, cloud-managed security offering that protects small-to-medium-sized businesses (SMBs) from cyber attacks and data breaches. More than 75,000 businesses have selected Avast for Business within the first two months of its availability.
Avast for Business was able to achieve such a successful launch by leveraging the power of free and Avast’s massive installed consumer user base of more than 230 million people globally. The new, cloud-managed solution has specifically been adopted by IT consulting, education and non-profit sectors. Early results also show a strong uptake in managed service providers (MSPs), who make up 12 percent of Avast for Business’ total installed device count and 2.5 percent of its new users.
"As most start-ups, small businesses, schools and nonprofit organizations lack the IT infrastructure to install costly and complex on-premise security solutions, Avast for Business provides the ideal solution," said Luke Walling, general manager of Avast for Business. "It’s easily scalable and managed from anywhere. Additionally, Avast for Business starts at a price everyone can afford: free, making it a natural fit for small-to-medium-sized businesses and organizations worldwide."
