Germany-based security company, Avira, just announced the release of a new bundled product which includes both their Antivirus Pro and PRIVATE WiFi. This bundle protects users from both malware infection and data theft.
“Avira and PRIVATE WiFi have a common mission: to offer people best-in-class digital protection, wherever they are. In a world with increasing mobility, we decided to provide our customers with protection on the move: our German engineered antivirus that fights against all types of viruses, combined with a professional encryption service that prevents any phishing attacks from happening” said Thorsten Bruchhaeuser, EVP Sales and Business Development at Avira.
Alok Kapur, President and Chief Operating Officer of PRIVATE WiFi added, “We are excited to join forces with Avira in creating a complete protection bundle. Users who purchase the package will be in possession of the best weapons to fight against all types of digital attacks and they will no longer have to worry about their private data ending up in the hands of others without their consent.”
Public WiFi networks have become notorious for their insecurity, as anyone with simple software can steal your information right out of thin air. But a VPN like PRIVATE WiFi secures and encrypts data sent across the Internet by building an encrypted tunnel. Data passes through this tunnel which protects the data from getting intercepted by anyone. Even if the data is intercepted, it is in encrypted format and appears as scrambled, senseless text to anyone without the encryption keys.
Avira’s new product bundle will be distributed via its partner network globally, starting this week, and will be available both in German and in English.
