AVG And Yandex Deliver Mobile Security To Customers With Android Devices

AMSTERDAM and SAN FRANCISCO, Oct. 9, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --  AVG Technologies N.V. (NYSE: AVG), the provider of Internet and mobile security, privacy and optimization to 155 million active users, today announced that it has extended its relationship with Yandex (NASDAQ: YNDX), Russia's leading Internet search provider. Owners of Android devices who download AVG AntiVirus PRO v3.3 for Android™ before the end of 2013 from the Yandex.Store will receive a perpetual license for free to help keep their Android device protected and optimized.

AVG AntiVirus PRO v3.3 for Android™ is AVG's premium security app that helps protect mobile devices from viruses, malware, spyware and online exploitation in real-time. Yandex.Store is one of the largest alternative applications stores for Android devices with more than 50,000 apps available to users worldwide.

"The rapid uptake of connected mobile devices has created a valuable channel for cybercriminals to reach unsuspecting consumers. We're delighted to work with Yandex to bring mobile security to its customers, helping them to feel safe online, no matter what device they are using," said Omri Sigelman, AVG Technologies. "The AVG AntiVirus PRO v3.3 for Android™ app delivers powerful tools, ranging from real-time app scanning to privacy controls and battery tune-ups, to help protect users while improving the performance of their Android device."

This is the next step in the growing relationship between AVG and Yandex. Both companies already provide the AVG Safeguard™ Toolbar to Yandex's search customers in Turkey.
