Grisoft Introduces AVG Free for Linux Virus Protection

Grisoft, Inc. has introduced a new free version of its software specifically for the Linux desktop. AVG Free for Linux is the first commercial-grade anti-virus product developed for free home use, providing maximum virus protection for single Linux computers.

Although Linux systems are among the most resistant to virus attacks, experts agree that all computer users should take precautionary measures by installing an anti-virus program to address potential threats. AVG Free for Linux can be used on a single computer and is intended for private, non-commercial use only. However, it offers many of the same advantages of the commercial AVG Anti-Virus products. For example, AVG Free for Linux features an intuitive graphical user interface (GUI) that makes the software easy to install and use. Other AVG Free for Linux benefits include:

- Rapid virus database updates for the lifetime of the product
- Small update files that do not drain system resources
- Automatic update functionality
- AVG On-Demand Scanner, which allows users to perform scheduled and manual tests
- AVG's advanced virus detection methods (heuristic analysis, generic detection, scanning) designed to provide maximum virus protection
