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.

Free AVG Download: All About AVG Free and Paid

-=================-
AVG Discount Coupon for USA Users:
http://www.identitytheftsecrets.com/avg-antivirus-us-discount
-=================-

Because I work with IdentityTheftSecrets, people are always asking me what’s the best Internet Security software or product. Usually they want something that’s cheap or free for their home computer, but lately I’ve also been getting more questions about internet security for mobile phones.

AVG’s free version has long been one of my favorite free (and pay) software tools since (I first downloaded AVG for free on the Internet from avg.com) sometime around 2006.

Using AVG’s free version did less to disrupt my computer (and seemingly more to protect it,) than when I downloaded similar anti-spyware and antivirus programs from other (and at the time larger) companies.

Perhaps this is one of the reasons for AVG’s meteoric growth rate.  AVG’s products (both free and paid versions), are downloaded thousands of times every day from AVG.com.  They now provide a full suite of Internet threat protection solutions – not just for consumers, but also for SMB’s and small enterprises.

Over 110 million people all across the world use AVG so that they can have great security on their computers.  One of the things I find nice about the AVG products I’ve used is that their programs don’t seem to interfere with your ability to do things on the Internet, such as banking or shopping.  When I’ve used other similar free programs, they either pop up with all kinds of warnings and signs, or they slow down my computer to such a snail’s pace that I end up frustrated and uninstalling them.  (If you’re using a pay version, rather than a free version, some of the vendors of antispyware and Internet Security products can be quite difficult to get a hold of.  I have found a few Internet Security software providers who don’t seem to have any staff at all – even for refunds or basic customer service).

With AVG, you know there’s a large and qualified team backing the product, and the free version is (more or less) subsidized by the users of the pay version.

Kaspersky Labs UK’s 2011’s new Internet Security features include

Safe Surf feature gives huge online security

What they are calling “Safe Surf ” supposedly prevents you from ever being exposed to harmful or offensive websites. That’s what they say in the marketing lingo.  We’ll check it to be sure, but we do know that rgular database updates from Kaspersky Labs in the UK gives an ongoing and near realtime blocking of undesirable websites as soon as you switch it on.

System Watcher (in the UK)
Kaspersky’s System Watcher technology will be a monitor that will be able to look through your system’s events.  Kaspersky says that it will accurately detect any dangerous behavior, but I think it’s time for another interview with kaspersky to find out exactly how it does that, as well as how they prompt UK users to go back to a system restore point prior to a malicious program being downloaded and run from the Internet.

There is a cool feature they have put into Kaspersky Internet Seucrity 2011, which is called the Easy Access Desktop gadget.

Kaspersky says that it makes checking the status of your PC and accessing your preferred security features more quickly an easier task.  We would agree, but sometimes wonder about all the products and programs offering us additional desktop links.  It’s probably a good idea for the average user however.

UK Government Data Breach in The Postal Service

A massive data breach in the United Kingdom demonstrates how easy it is for sensitive data to be compromised.
Two CDs containing the personal information of almost every child under the age of 16 and their parents in the U.K. have gone missing. (That’s 25 million people who belong to 7.25 million families.)
The data, compiled for the payment of certain social benefits, includes each child’s name, address, date of birth, sex, and National Insurance number, the parents’ and any partners’ information, and in some cases, the family’s bank account details.
