AVG LinkScanner – Free and Easy
FREE AVG LinkScanner
AVG lauched its AVG LinkScanner as a free standalone product on April 20th, 2009. The free version of AVG LinksScanner is compatible with most current consumer anti-virus and security suite products, and is available to home users onlu.
AVG LinkScanner also included the AVG Toolbar which provides easy access to LinkScanner capabilities right inside the browser, along with built-in access to Yahoo!’s search engine.
AVG LinkScanner showcases technology that is uniquely relevant to today’s Internet users in ways that database-driven products (such as McAfee SiteAdvisor) are not. LinkScanner protects against random, invisible cyber-threats. These threats can steal or damage data simply by users visiting the infected page. Regular anti-virus software cannot protect users against this type of threat due to the transient nature of these threats. LinkScanner gives users an additional real-time layer of protection alongside their existing security software.
Additionally, this initiative will generate leads via downloads that will serve as an additional route by which to introduce new customers to the AVG product experience for later up-sell to a paid AVG solution.
The global announcement was made by AVG at the RSA Conference 2009 in San Francisco via a number of launch vehicles including meetings with key press and industry analysts, press release, a microsite and associated electronic marketing vehicles to drive download volume, a brief product demo and other tools designed to build awareness for the product.
