Microsoft Makes AVG Security Products Available Directly From Windows Security Center in Windows Vista

GRISOFT is first to offer free antivirus protection to users of upcoming Windows OS


Millburn, N.J. - November 6, 2006 – GRISOFT today announced that Microsoft is making AVG Anti-Virus 7.5 and AVG Anti-Virus Free Edition available via Windows Security Center as a Windows Vista security solution. The solutions are available in the latest release of the Windows Vista™ beta program and will be available in the commercial release. The programs can be accessed via this link: http://www.microsoft.com/athome/security/update/windowsvistaRC1AV.mspx

Antivirus protection is vital for computer users. Now with support for Windows Security Center in Windows Vista, using AVG Anti-Virus Free Edition and the latest commercial release is even more convenient. AVG products utilize a low level of computer resources. This feature is now even more important as personal computers and networks today run more and more different applications and services simultaneously, which can slow computer performance.

“Partners are a key component in Microsoft’s goal of providing robust security solutions for our customers for Windows Vista,” said Ben Fathi, corporate vice president, Security Technology Unit, Microsoft Corp. “GRISOFT has worked with us throughout the Vista release process, we are pleased to see the release of their Vista beta for our customers and look forward to continuing to work with them on future Windows releases.”

GRISOFT’s Windows Vista-ready products include AVG Anti-Virus 7.5 and AVG Anti-Virus Free Edition. These AVG products offer protection against a variety of computer and cyber threats like viruses, Trojans, adware, dialers, keyloggers and worms. These products also include automatic updates and a single, user-friendly interface.

“We’re very excited to be working with Microsoft to provide their and our users with protection for the current Windows Vista beta program and upcoming launch of the new operating system,” said Larry Bridwell, vice president for communications at GRISOFT. “Our security programs are ready for the Windows Vista launch and making sure that users have the best security protection and great services available for their PCs.”
