AVG has launched their Internet Security 2011.  Of course you can still get the free versions of AVG, but you might also want to look into the pay versions for AVG Internet Security.  As mentioned elsewhere on IdentityTheftSecrets, we are big fans of AVG because it’s great to have multiple layers of protection when you do anything on the Internet.

AVG Internet Security uses AVG’s “Protective Cloud Technology” which uses multiple reference points to collect the newest security breaches and viruses.  It is then shared within the AVG community and products (both free and paid) to make sure your security is up-to-date on as near to a real-time basis as is possible.

Specifics of what their security features allow you to do (from AVG.com) include:

  • Shop and bank online safely with AVG Firewall, AVG Anti-Spam & AVG Identity Protection™
  • Stay safe on social networks with AVG Social Networking Protection
  • Surf and search with confidence with AVG LinkScanner’s® real-time protection

Things that AVG is saying are new OR improved for 2011 are listed below… first a commentary on the phrase “New and Improved”.

It’s good for AVG (from our perspective) that their marketing copy doesn’t say “new and improved.”

If something is “new,” then by it’s very nature, it can’t really be improved.  If something has been improved, it must have existed before, and therefore wasn’t something new.

Be wary of any company that tells you their Internet Security product (or any product – not just for Internet security, but any product or service) is “new AND improved”.

It’s marketing language designed to make you feel safe and overly excited about making a purchase.

AVG Firewall (enhanced for AVG 2011) and AVG Identity Protection™  Provides additional layers of security, keeping your private information safe at all times.

AVG’s Firewall protects you from malicious attacks by examining communications on each network port. It recognizes all attempts to invade your system and blocks them immediately, keeping both you and your private information safe.

AVG Social Networking Protection is new for AVG 2011 and is unique to AVG. Links that are exchanged within Facebook and MySpace are automatically checked in real time so that you and your friends are safe. AVG Social Networking Protection will activate as soon as you install AVG – there’s no need to bother with account or application settings.

If you do decide to purchase AVG’s products instead of just the free version, they have technical experts available to help, and standard support is included with AVG 2011.

There are lots of other great features with AVG.

One of our favorites is simply that (when compared with many other anti-virus companies), AVG doesn’t seem to bog down your computer to do the work it needs to do to protect you and your computer.
