Melbourne, 27 May 2011 — AVG (AU/NZ) Pty Ltd, the distributor of the award-winning AVG anti-virus and Internet security software in Australia, New Zealand and South Pacific, will again be shining the spotlight on personal and small business security at the upcoming CeBIT Australia 2011 exhibition, the most influential event of its kind in the Asia-Pacific region.

Make a beeline for Stand O25 to talk to AVG (AU/NZ)’s sales and support team members who will be on hand to provide business and technical tips to ensure companies have the required policies and procedures in place to protect their businesses. They will also be demonstrating the award-winning ‘AVG at Work’ range of business security solutions for SMB, government, education and enterprise networks. Special free AVG Business trials will be available from the Stand.

The recent release of AVG Technologies’ "AVG Community Powered Threat Report - Q1 2011", which provides current trends in the world of online threats, revealed an explosive increase in malicious campaigns that exploited smartphones and tablets, predominantly those that are Android based.

Sam Hendry, General Manager of AVG (AU/NZ): “The use of these open, constantly connected, mobile devices pose a great risk to personal protection. Users tend to shrug off mobile security solutions and carelessly broadcast financial, account and other personal data, such as their exact location, while on the go. Come and talk to us at CeBIT about security that is specific to the mobile environment.”

For both home consumers and businesses, the online risks remain high. Cyber criminals continue to use innovative and sustained practices to steal your money, identity and resources. The bad guys are moving their activities into social networking sites with Facebook threats increasing three-fold in Q1 2011. Come and learn how AVG’s protection keeps you and your business safe on social networks.

AVG has security solutions for the Windows, Mac, Linux and Android platforms. With recent malicious malware attacks against the Mac having been successful, Mac users should come and learn how AVG can keep them safe online.

From 10.30 a.m. to 4.30 p.m. each day, the AVG (AU/NZ) team will be covering a wide range of consumer and business security topics, including:
• Consumer: Protecting Yourself at Home, Getting Started; Preventing Infections on Your PC; Removal of Infections; and An Introduction to AVG PC Tuneup.
• Business: Deploying AVG for SMBs Centrally; The AVG Toolkit for Business; Optimising AVG for Server Platforms; Managing Risk and Threat Notifications; and Tailoring AVG to Your Environment.

Lloyd Borrett, Security Evangelist for AVG (AU/NZ) will be providing Six Simple Tips to Protect Yourself Online at 11:30 a.m. and 3:30 p.m. on Tuesday, 31 May 2011. A complete list of presentation topics and times can be seen online at http://resources.avg.com.au/security_risks/avg-at-cebit-2011/.
