AVG's AVG Zen now available in select markets

AVG Technologies N.V. (NYSE: AVG) said it has announced the availability of AVG Zen in Canada, Germany, Spain, the United Kingdom and the United States of America.

AVG Zen is a new application for Windows PCs and Android smartphones and tablets that significantly simplifies the way in which users can control their protection, performance and privacy settings.

Yuval Ben-Itzhak, chief technology officer, AVG Technologies said, “With AVG Zen, users can see at a glance the real-time status of all the connected devices and take proactive, corrective measures as required.”

While technology has made it easier to do many things, whether booking a holiday or sorting out family finances, the pressure on people to make sure their devices are protected, performing at their best and kept private, has never been higher. AVG Zen gives consumers a quick view of changes they could make to tackle these everyday issues, such as showing some of the steps a parent could take to maintain their child´s privacy settings on a tablet, simple ways to make sure the antivirus solution on a smartphone is always up to date, or suggestions on how to maximize the battery life on the family laptop.
