AVG Technologies (NYSE: AVG), the provider of Internet and mobile security to 128 million active users, is proud to have recently received a series of notable honors and accolades from influential industry publications in the U.S. and in Europe.

The company has been widely regarded as a leader in consumer Internet security solutions for more than 20 years. Since 2008, AVG has expanded its product portfolio to include system optimization, social media aggregation, family safety, cloud storage and mobile security solutions, all designed to provide consumers with complete peace of mind on the Internet.

Earlier this month, PCMag awarded AVG’s Family Safety product with 4.5 out of a possible five stars, also endowing the solution with Editor’s Choice honors as the leading security software application in its sector. AVG Family Safety acts as a virtual guardian for children, enabling them to roam freely online while still ensuring they are protected at all times. The product is also currently in the running for a Top People’s Choice honor in the American Business Award competition for the software-security solution category.

In addition, in the U.S., AVG’s core product AVG Antivirus Free 2012 has earned PCMag’s Editors Choice distinction and a 4.5 star rating from CNET as a top Internet security solution in its class. Softpedia also awarded the solution with a full five stars along with its “Softpedia Pick” designation. German outlet CHIP.DE named AVG Antivirus Free 2012 as a top-100 download, while UK-based outlet Computer Shopper gave the solution a full five-star rating.

Not to be overshadowed by its consumer-focused counterpart, AVG Internet Security Business Edition received a Best Channel designation by Business Solutions Magazine. AVG Business Edition 2012 is a robust, resource-friendly security software solution for today’s small- and medium-sized businesses. The 2012 version software is faster, lighter and easier to use than ever before.

“We are extremely pleased that AVG products are receiving such a high level of praise and acknowledgement from these important and influential industry outlets,” said JR Smith, CEO of AVG Technologies. “As we continue to enhance our product portfolio to provide our customers with even more easy-to-use solutions that make their online experiences safer, faster and easier, we’re expecting to continue the momentum in the time ahead.”
