AVG Secure Search offered alongside Innovative Solutions` most popular products
to enable safe and secure browsing
AMSTERDAM & SAN FRANCISCO--(Business Wire)--
AVG Technologies N.V. (NYSE: AVG), the provider of Internet and mobile security
to 143 million active users, today announced a new cooperation agreement with
the software development company, Innovative Solutions. 

Innovative Solutions specializes in developing software for desktop and mobile
platforms, and will now bundle AVG Secure Search with a number of its products,
including the award-winning DriverMax. The AVG Secure Search solution, which
works across all major browsers, such as Google Chrome, Firefox and Internet
Explorer, alerts users to potentially dangerous webpages before they visit them,
helping to protect their personal information and devices from threats. 

"Our aim is to provide customers with products that offer as much value as
possible whilst ensuring top performance. Working with AVG is a perfect example
of this - demonstrating the effective combination of two different IT solutions
to enhance the businesses of our clients," said Daniel Statescu, CEO of
Innovative Solutions. "For us this partnership is also about more than just
technology benefits. The added value of having support from AVG, as well as
access to its business and marketing expertise were also key considerations." 

Since being founded in 1999 in Bucharest, Innovative Solutions has grown to be a
global company with a suite of twelve software products. The most successful of
these, DriverMax, finds and downloads the latest driver for a customer`s
computer rather than requiring a lengthy manual search. DriverMax has over 15
million downloads worldwide and currently the most complete driver update
program, offering drivers for 99% of all devices. 

"Our work with Innovative Solutions assures more and more customers of a safer
online environment, giving them the freedom to make the most of their internet
experience with peace of mind," commented John Giamatteo, COO of AVG
Technologies.
