2016. Avast Antivirus acquired competitor AVG



Avast, one of our the most populer antivirus applications, is acquiring one of it’s biggest rivals, AVG Technologies, for $1.3 billion in cash. The deal will give Avast access to over 400 million devices that currently use Avast or AVG’s software. This includes 250 million PC and Mac users, and 160 million mobile users. The actual acquirement process will take a few months, but you can expect positive changes in threat detection efficiency already in the near future. Avast will be able to gather more threat data to improve user protection on PC, Mac, mobile, and even start branching out into Internet of things hardware. And Avast will have access to AVG’s Zen mobile technology that’s used to protect an entire family’s devices from just one primary device. The combo also means they’ll be able to improve technical support to business users.
