Providing security for individual PCs was already a tedious enough exercise, but with smartphones and tablets thrown into the mix a unified security solution makes the most sense.
AVG Zen is a new application for PCs, smartphones and tablets designed to simplify the management of security, performance and privacy on Internet-connected devices.
AVG Zen gives individuals and families an overview of their online personal protection settings all from one place and allows them to make quick and informed security decisions accordingly to all their devices. This covers not just PCs but assorted mobile and Internet connected devices.
AVG’s Tony Anscombe explains how it works, “by using AVG Zen I can now track all the AVG software that is on our devices, my wife has AVG AntiVirus Free on her PC, my son has AVG Internet Security and AVG AntiVirus for Android on both a tablet and on his phone and I have AVG Antivirus on my PC, phone and tablet.”
Anscobe points out, “having a single dashboard that shows me the live status of my AVG network and any potential issues means that we can travel, work and play with the confidence of knowing that we are secure, optimized and as private as we choose to be. And importantly, when my son messes with his configuration or switches off a feature I will receive a handy notification wherever I am in the world.”
The idea behind AVG Zen is to place the individual with all of these devices back in control of their data and their security as we believe that through control comes choice.
AVG is not here to tell you that sharing or tracking are bad in and of themselves; instead, “we want to arm our customers with the information that will allow them to control what they share and if they are tracked, and to make their own informed decisions. A choice to have the freedom to live their lives in the way they want to, and to bring up their family or apply for a job without fear of their privacy being invaded,” Anscombe says.
AVG Zen is available for core products, including AVG Internet Security, AVG PC TuneUp, AVG PrivacyFix, AVG Antivirus for Android, AVG Cleaner for Android, AVG PrivacyFix for Android and AVG Zen Admin for Android apps from Google Play.
