Free anti-virus software maker AVG Technologies has introduced AVG Internet Security 2011 Business Edition and AVG Anti-Virus 2011 Business Edition, designed for cost-conscious businesses that need maximum protection in an easy-to-use product.

AVG said its new suite of business security products provide small and medium-sized business owners who are active on the internet with the protection that they need, including protecting online transactions, email communications and sensitive customer data.

“At AVG, we recognize that most small business owners are not IT experts, and need an anti-virus and internet security solution for their business that provides maximum protection and is easy to administrate,” said J.R. Smith, CEO, AVG Technologies. “That’s why we designed AVG Internet Security 2011 Business Edition and AVG Anti-Virus 2011 Business Edition to be the easiest to use and manage on the market.”

AVG designed the new SMB-focused products based on AVG’s People Powered Protection design model — incorporating feedback from AVG’s global community of more than 110 million users. AVG said the product suite includes enhanced Web- and social network-protection, among the best detection rates in the industry, ease-of-use and a faster, nimble and more powerful design.

AVG’s business security solutions popular among small and medium sized businesses worldwide; including Kaseya, a global provider of IT Systems Management software.

“Kaseya currently has a significant number of deployments of AVG integrated into the Kaseya product line allowing our customers a ‘single pane of glass’ to view all aspects of the environments they manage,” said Jeff Keyes of Kaseya. “The integration includes monitoring and remediation for component status, signature versions, scans, and many other aspects of the AVG product. We are looking forward to the improvements in AVG 2011.”
