I am not sure about you but I always look for an expert not only to tell me what the best thing is but I also look to them to validate a decision I may be coming to. While we like to be individual we also like to have the crowd telling us it’s the right thing to do. The more of an expert the person is that ratifies our decision then the better we feel.
So AVG fans, celebrate making the right decision! Last week we released our 2014 product range amid some fanfare in New York and then we held our breath while the experts retired to the testing labs to test it and pass verdict. I can tell you know this is a tense time when the jury is out!
The first verdict came in from CNETTM and Eddie Cho, their Associate Producer, who reviews all the major security products that get listed on download.com. Eddie’s review looks at features and performance of the product and I am extremely pleased to see that he picked up on the specific theme of privacy that we have built into this year’s products that includes AVG Data Safe and AVG Shredder. With detection rates being cited from AV-TestTM, AV-Comparatives he concluded in his review that this version if the best AVG yet.

Verdict number two, the infamous Neil Rubenking, the PC MagTM Lead Analyst for Security and blogger of PC Mag’s Security watch, provides an in-depth analysis of AVG AntiVirus Free 2014. The testing Neil carries out is unique as he takes malware infected machines, clean machines and different environments to test in ways that replicate what consumers at home may well be using. With some challenges as documented in Neil’s full review he concluded that this 2014 release retains the Editors Choice for a second year running.
