An AVG Anti-Virus solution from

When Owen Stevens, Systems and Network Manager for Overton's, Inc. needed to choose a new anti-virus product, he had to make sure it would meet the demands of his fast-growing company.

Before switching to Grisoft’s AVG Anti-Virus, Overton’s was running a competing anti-virus software on all 250 workstations in 4 separate locations. However, there were a number of problems with the existing virus product that not only made Owen’s job more difficult, but that also left them vulnerable to viruses.

A Simple Solution

“We were having a real problem with our users disabling the anti-virus protection on their machines,” said Owen. “Since we have multiple offices and could not manage the existing anti-virus product from a central location, the only way to make sure a machine was protected was to physically go to that machine. With 250 users and 4 locations, it was impossible to make sure every machine was protected all of the time.”

Owen was already familiar with the AVG product because he was using it on his personal home computer and decided to request a proposal for a corporate license. The quote he received was shocking.

“I was just amazed. The price for the Corporate AVG product was 75% LESS than all of the other bids we received and included features that were paid upgrades on our previous anti-virus product,” says Owen, “that was the main reason we switched.”

However, after installing the product, Owen discovered a number of other advantages to the AVG Anti-Virus product.

Astonishing Results

“When we installed the AVG product, it instantly found and cleaned a number of viruses on our network that our previous anti-virus product was overlooking,” says Owen. “We had about 3-4 problem machines that never seemed to work right no matter what you did to fix them. After installing AVG Anti-Virus, all of these mystery problems disappeared and the machines started working like they should,” he continued. “I’m sure it was a virus that was causing the problems.”

AVG Anti-Virus also allows Owen to manage all of his workstations from one location and does not allow his users to disable the virus protection on their machine.

Superior Quality & Service

Owen also discovered that the service he received after the sale was much better than he expected.

“Most companies are great at following up with you when they want to make the sale, but after you buy, you never hear from them again. That wasn’t the case with AVG Distributor, Walling Data Systems,” he stated, “Not only were they easy to reach and very responsive, they helped us complete the entire install and followed up to make sure it was running properly. I would definitely recommend AVG Anti-Virus to any other IT Manager looking for virus protection at a fraction of the cost of many competing solutions, with better service to match.”
