Stocks in this article: AVG





AMSTERDAM and SAN FRANCISCO, Dec. 10, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- AVG Technologies N.V. (NYSE: AVG), the provider of Internet and mobile security, privacy and optimization to 172 million active users, today launched a limited time offer for small businesses. To enable a sustainable, cost efficient migration path, this special promotion offers the AVG CloudCare™ Online Backup cloud-based small business protection platform free to existing Backup Exec.cloud customers. 

"At the end of November Symantec announced plans to close down its Backup Exec.cloud service," said Mike Foreman, General Manager, SMB, AVG Technologies.  "By taking advantage of this special offer, those customers affected will immediately receive alternative protection through AVG CloudCare with Online Backup. They will also receive full credit for their remaining Backup Exec.cloud licenses as well as free managed AntiVirus for all of their backed up endpoints."

Under the terms , AVG will offer AVG Online Backup for the remainder of the term of the existing Symantec Backup exec.cloud license(s), provided partners commit to giving customers a paid subscription for the same period to begin at the expiration of the term.  Further, AVG will grant AVG AntiVirus licenses for one year, equal to the number of licenses redeemed in the Symantec Backup exec.cloud promotion.  For example, if 100 Symantec Backup exec.cloud licenses are honored under this promotion for AVG Online Backup, 100 licenses of AVG AntiVirus for one year will be granted to the partner.

This promotion is effective immediately until 11:59 p.m. EST on March 31st, 2014.  For more information on this offer, please call 855-254-6989.

AVG's small business security portfolio is comprised of a worldwide network of more than 10,000 partners.  Its pedigree in this area makes it ideally positioned to help smaller IT and managed services providers (MSPs) harness low cost, cloud-based tools so they can transition into a fully-fledged managed services business.
