AVG 9 Business Edition
AVG Technologies recently launched the latest version of its popular antivirus software suite, AVG 9, across the world. The free antivirus solution is now available for download (72.6 MB).
But if you want a little more security with professional service and follow-ups, AVG Internet Security Business Edition 9.0 and AVG Anti-Virus Business Edition 9.0 leverage the significant enhancements in speed and levels of protection that AVG has delivered in its latest generation of consumer products, making it safer and easier to manage. 
“AVG’s 9.0 small business solutions provide businesses with more powerful and streamlined protection that deliver improved administration, more robust protection, and faster performance - all without getting in the way of business,” said J.R. Smith, CEO, AVG Technologies. 
Smarter Security That Won’t Slow Your Business Down
To minimize the impact of protection on productivity, AVG’s small business solutions now offer scan times that are up to 50 per cent faster than earlier versions, depending on system configuration. The combined anti-virus/anti-spyware scanner employs new intelligent technology which marks files as safe or potentially unsafe during its initial scan, and ignores them in future scans unless the file structure changes. 
Make the Internet Safer for Your Business, Staff, and Customers
Revolutionary in the AVG Internet Security offerings is the integration between the Resident Shield, firewall, and data protection modules. This enables modules to share malware information, increasing AVG’s ability to detect and remove most malicious types of malware, rootkits, and other threats for which signatures have not yet been issued.  
The redesigned firewall application assists in keeping business information safe from known and unknown threats and is significantly quieter and less intrusive. The new trusted database of applications and application certificates enables AVG to determine, without user intervention, the relative safety of any active process and block any deemed unsafe. 
Takes Care of Security While You Take Care of Business
AVG 9.0 for small businesses also includes key enhancements to minimize the management resources required. The new offerings incorporate cloning technology into the deployment process, simplifying and shortening installation time, and new system tools enable administrators to customize the way AVG works to protect the network. The new update manager makes sure the business is always protected against the latest threats – automatically, and the new Linux-based rescue CD restores the network in the event an existing infection renders systems unbootable. 
Specific to AVG Internet Security Business Edition 9.0 is the addition of data protection functionality gained through AVG’s acquisition of Sana Security earlier this year. The behavioral technology learns the DNA of a business’ network so that it can recognise anomalies and block malicious processes, which dramatically improves protection against keyloggers and other crimeware. 
The new functionality in Identity Protection (IDP) will catch malicious software trying to hijack a system before it is able to cause any damage.  To improve ease of use and administrator experience, IDP is manageable from the administrator’s console or can be completely silent.
In addition, the new client email scanner in AVG Anti-Virus Business Edition 9.0 cleans the email system of harmful message attachments and dangerous links, and the new enhanced anti-spam filter prevents phishers, scammers, and spammers from clogging workstations and mail servers. Web shielding technology also minimizes the risk of virus and other rogue software infections when downloading and exchanging files.
