AVG Technologies, makers of the world’s most popular free anti-virus software, announced today that LabTech Software will now offer their channel partners worldwide a fully integrated antivirus solution from the AVG product offering. The agreement is part of AVG’s Global Strategic Alliances (GSA) group 2010 partner program which is focused on development, licensing initiatives and strategic partnerships in the SaaS/MSP/ISP markets.
Under this offering, LabTech will leverage Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) to provide its channel partners worldwide with the latest AVG Antivirus Business Edition and AVG Internet Security Business Edition. AVG’s leading anti-virus detection and performance coupled with its ease of use will enable managed service providers (MSP) to better mitigate and address security threats.
“LabTech’s technology experience with remote monitoring, management, and automation matched with AVG’s industry expertise with anti-virus solutions underscores the need for a fully integrated approach when it comes to security solutions,” said Rocco Donnino- SVP Global Strategic Alliances for AVG Technologies. “This alliance is a great extension of our current global security solution footprint and will help us to deliver more innovative security technology to support the security needs and services of the SaaS, MSP and ISP markets.”
“With MSP offerings becoming more and more common, anti-virus protection and management has become a must-have product in an MSPs service set,” said Matt Nachtrab, CEO for LabTech Software. “This bundled SAAS offering makes an MSP’s service offering stickier to their client base because the MSP owns the antivirus and makes it more difficult for them to switch to another provider.”
