2016. Avast Antivirus acquired competitor AVG
Avast, one of the most popular antivirus applications, has announced its acquisition of AVG Technologies, one of its major competitors, for a cash sum of $1.3 billion. This strategic move will provide Avast with access to a vast user base of over 400 million devices currently employing Avast or AVG's software solutions. Among these users are 250 million PC and Mac users, as well as 160 million mobile users. While the acquisition process will take a few months to complete, users can anticipate enhancements in threat detection efficiency in the near future. Avast will have the opportunity to gather more comprehensive threat data, thereby enhancing user protection across PC, Mac, mobile, and even extending its reach to Internet of Things (IoT) devices. Additionally, Avast will gain access to AVG's Zen mobile technology, which enables the protection of an entire family's devices from a single primary device. This collaboration will also enable the improvement of technical support for business users.
