ALWIL Software announced the registration of the 40 millionth user of its multiple award-winning avast! Home Edition antivirus software. The very first user registered in January 2002 and the 20 millionth, just a year ago in October 2006.
Eduard Kucera, CEO of ALWIL Software commented:
We are extremely proud of this landmark achievement. The fact that 40 million home users have entrusted their internet security to our innovative and reliable antivirus technology – and that 20 million of them registered in the past year – demonstrates that our momentum is increasing, and that avast! has become a trusted brand for security protection, not only for avast! Home Edition, but also for our robust, leading edge offering of antivirus solutions for other platforms like PDA, U3 devices and servers.
