Something new today, instead of physical product I took a look at AVG Internet Security 2014. The latest internet security suite created by AVG possibly one of the largest and most widely used internet security options the world over. Founded in 1991 with the express purpose of protecting people around the world using the latest in cutting edge security technologies. AVG has become one of the major players when it comes to anti-virus software as well as internet security. With corporate offices in Europe such as in The Netherlands, Czech Republic, Cyprus, UK, Germany, France; in the US such as in the Pensacola area in Florida, San Francisco Bay Area in California, Atlanta area in Georgia, Boston area in Massachusetts, Charlotte area in North Carolina; in the Middle East, in Israel; in Asia such as Beijing and Hong Kong in China.
Internet Security has been required by everyone from large corporate infrastructures right down to the home user, to protect it from threats whilst surfing the net as well as when downloading any files from the internet. With various malware and spyware lurking in the unlikeliest places having a decent internet security suite and anti-virus program to stop them in their tracks is always a good idea.
So what is the big deal about AVG Internet Security 2014, let’s take a look at the screen cast to find out more.
All in all I really like the software, not only is it easy to use and well laid out, the UI may seem basic to some power users. This software is designed to be easy to use and any further controls and settings are placed firmly out of reach so no one can accidentally change something that may be required to protect the users system. Not only that but the additional mobile applications that are free to use for the live time of the installation is also of great benefit to those who use tablets or smart phones on a regular basis.
Time to give this software an award, ultimately its one area I was unsure of when it came to writing this article. The software is excellent and does so much to protect your system from threats found on the internet. Having tested the software not only on my system but on a slightly older laptop I can confirm that the software is most definitely well designed and performs within its role admirably. Whilst I did not encounter any specific threats whilst using the software I am sure it will come in handy in the future.
With that being said I am awarding the AVG Internet Security Suite our Editors’ Choice Award, this software excels in every way imaginable.
