Security expert Avira announced today that China’s leading search engine, Baidu Inc. (Nasdaq: BIDU), has licensed Avira’s SAVAPI anti-malware SDK. In addition, Avira is bundling its own security software products with Baidu’s free PC Faster tune-up utility specifically for the Thailand market.

Avira encourages all Internet users in Thailand to download Avira Free Antivirus and benefit from the added PC Faster tune-up, free of charge. The products can be downloaded here: http://www.avira.com/en/baidu-pc-faster/

“Baidu is delighted to partner with a world-class security provider like Avira,” said Xiao Yang, director, global products, for Baidu. “Together, Baidu and Avira are able to deliver comprehensive security and optimization to Thailand’s fast-growing Internet using population, creating a better, safer, and smoother online experience for millions of users.”

Baidu launched its security and optimization product Baidu PC Faster in the Thai market in July of 2012. Since then, the product has been downloaded over two million times and currently has over one million active Thai users.

Avira’s SAVAPI anti-malware SDK makes integrating Avira security technology simple and cost-effective. Baidu will use Avira’s award-winning scanning engine for its security and optimization products globally.

“We are pleased to be partnering with Baidu at so many levels,“ said Travis Witteveen, COO of Avira. “Baidu’s free PC Faster utility is a perfect complement to Avira’s antivirus software and a great value for our free users. Plus, our anti-malware SDK lets Baidu easily integrate our scanning technology to strengthen their own security products.”
