AVG (AU/NZ) Launches Promotion for Resellers to Expand SMB Client Base
Under the new ‘Make the Match’ promotion, when a business client buys AVG Internet Security Business Edition complete protection for their network workstations and servers, AVG (AU/NZ) will provide a free copy of its AVG Internet Security suite for use at home by every employee covered under the business license. This premium combination delivers complete protection for the client’s business, plus complete protection for staff at home. The special promotion runs till the end of July 2010.
Michael Dowling, Corporate Sales Director, AVG (AU/NZ), said: “This ‘Make the Match’ promotion is a great offer to help our resellers market to new SMB clients, while preserving full margins. Plus it provides extra exposure to AVG home users and the potential to grow that area too.”
The promotion has a revenue flow-on effect as resellers will have the opportunity to sell AVG renewals to an extended client base of home users in 12 months’ time.
AVG AU/NZ has provided all the support materials for its channel including PDF brochures to educate staff and prospects on this exciting new promotional offer.
To ensure there is no additional administration for resellers, the free matching employee software offer is redeemable by the customer directly from the AVG (AU/NZ) web site. The customer will then receive “not for sale” promotional cards for their staff, who in turn can go online and obtain a 1 PC, 1 year licence to use AVG Internet Security at home.
Making the Match: Internet ‘active’ or Internet ‘passive’ – determining levels of protection AVG (AU/NZ) is providing resellers with marketing materials so they can help businesses ‘Make the Match’ between their exposure levels to online threats and implementing the most appropriate level of Internet security.
Internet ‘passive’ business users, who use PCs in a limited way for internal data and systems, surfing the Internet and sending e-mails, can be confidently protected by AVG Anti-Virus Business Edition.
Internet ‘active’ businesses use the Internet for such activities as complete online transactions with suppliers or customers involving sensitive data; storing personally-identifiable information about customers or employees; or exchanging sensitive business information over e-mail and instant messaging.
These businesses have a very high level of exposure and need the complete protection of AVG Internet Security Business Edition, which is engineered to be light on resources and fast in operation.
“This AVG ‘Make the Match’ promotion has it all. An unbeatable offer, marketing support materials and a compelling sales line,” Dowling said.
AVG Internet Security Business Edition’s multiple layers of protection include: • High-efficiency Anti-Virus, Anti-Spyware and Anti-Rootkit scanning to provide great malware protection without getting in the way of business • Data Protection module to ensure safe online business transactions by adding a vital extra security layer of protection against unknown threats • AVG LinkScanner® web protection technology which blocks access to poisoned web pages • Enhanced Anti-Spam module which prevents e-mail from phishers, scammers and spammers from clogging workstations • Anti-Spam Server Protection module which keeps the e-mail server running smoothly and prevents viruses and other threats from spreading via e-mail • Enhanced two-way Firewall which works in the background to keep hackers and botnets out without interrupting business • Linux-based AVG Rescue CD which makes sure the network can be recovered from a serious existing infection • Enhanced centralised administration and management with automated updates, remote repair and security policy enforcement
The award-winning AVG Internet Security Business Edition protects Windows based business workstations, file and e-mail servers. It’s used across the world by SMB, government, education and enterprise businesses to protect from 5 to 1000s of networked systems.
AVG Internet Security Business Edition is available both direct from AVG (AU/NZ) and via the extensive network of AVG resellers nationwide. Retail prices start at just A$318 for a 5 computer, 1 year licence, which with the special ‘Make the Match’ offer includes 5 free 1 computer, 1 year licences of AVG Internet Security valued at A$70 each.
