AVG Technologies

Antivirus is no longer enough
Every day, tens of thousands of new viruses appear in security companies’ labs. Traditional security software products that rely on “signatures” to detect and block viruses by identifying each one just can’t keep up. You need something more to protect you when you go online. Yes, you still need that traditional protection against the viruses and spyware that are already out there. AVG Identity Protection goes a step further by adding an extra layer of defense against new and unknown threats.
AVG Identity Protection uses a technology called behavioral analysis to make sure all the programs running on your PC are operating the way they should. If it spots something suspicious that could indicate an attempted identity theft attack, it shuts that activity down, preventing any possible theft from happening. It doesn’t matter whether you’re running AVG software or security software from another vendor; identity protection runs alongside all popular programs to keep you safer when they’re online.

As soon as you’ve installed it, Identity Protection is on guard, protecting your personal and private information against identity theft attacks.
