Doro Enlists AVG's Help To Mature Mobile Users Get Connected Safely

AMSTERDAM and SAN FRANCISCO, Nov. 21, 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 Doro AB (DORO.SS) will pre-load its new easy-to-use smartphone with AVG AntiVirus PRO v3.3 for Androidâ„¢ to offer Doro users increased peace of mind.

Doro has built a global profile in providing mobile phones with large buttons and simple interfaces for a particular demographic of consumers – seniors, or baby boomers, as they are also known. The new Doro Liberto 810 smartphone aims to help get baby boomers connected quickly, easily and safely using the latest technology. Customers will receive a year's license for AVG AntiVirus PRO v3.3 for Android for free with their new handset.

"We are the global leader in mobile phones for seniors - an audience segment that is often overlooked. Our mission is to help them overcome the digital divide and have more enjoyment in life, by being better-connected.  Bringing the Internet to seniors in an accessible and inclusive manner via an easy-to-use smartphone offers huge lifestyle benefits to the user.  We are able to provide extra peace of mind by working with AVG for our security solution," said Jerome Arnaud, President and CEO at Doro.

"Recent research carried out by AVG found that consumers aged 65 year and over had on average three to five connected devices in the home. Age is not and should not be a barrier to getting online and having a rich digital life. That said, AVG recognizes the importance of addressing the particular needs of its consumers, and that a one size fits all model does not work," said Judith Bitterli, Senior Vice President of Marketing, AVG Technologies. "Working with Doro has been rewarding as its ethos of providing simple, safe smartphones tailored to its customers' needs perfectly matches our own goal of helping baby boomers to be confident and comfortable online."
