AVG Technologies buys web protection vendor

Security vendor AVG Technologies has acquired internet protection vendor Exploit Prevention Labs. AVG was acquired by anti-virus vendor Grisoft in August this year (CRN, 24 August), and the combined company was rebranded AVG Technologies.

Roger Thompson, co-founder and chief technology officer of Exploit Prevention Labs, said: "Exploit's software blocks dangerous downloads on websites and addresses drive-by attacks. "AVG is leapfrogging the competition with its products at the moment and with 60m users in its client base. Exploit gets to put its software on millions of computers in a shorter time."
