AVG Technologies N.V. (NYSE: AVG), the provider of Internet and mobile security solutions with 146 million active users (as of December 31, 2012), today announced that it has been awarded the MSPAlliance MSPWorld Cup Award™. The MSPWorld Cup award recognizes technology-enabling companies that have demonstrated consistent efforts to advance the cause of managed service providers across the globe by providing cutting edge technologies and solutions. AVG CloudCare™ was recently recognized as the best cloud enabling solution during the MSPWorld Conference in Orlando, FL. “We are especially honored to receive this prestigious award for best cloud solution for AVG CloudCare,” said Mike Foreman, General Manager SMB for AVG Technologies. “The award reinforces the appeal of AVG CloudCare, which has been adopted by more then 1,000 reseller and MSP channel partners in just five short months since its introduction.” AVG CloudCare provides an easy-to-use cloud based administration platform that allows remote deployment and management of Information Technology and security services for small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs) at an affordable price. The platform is provided to partners free of charge, helping them to roll out “pay-as-you-go” services and enabling them to manage and protect their customers’ IT systems more cost efficiently. Free AVG Remote IT, one-click deployment of services, including AVG AntiVirus and AVG Content Filtering, help save time and reduce the need for onsite visits – allowing partners to serve even the smallest customer more profitably. Additional benefits include sales alerts and at-a-glance reporting to help demonstrate partners’ added value to the SMB market.
