AVG has unveiled a new division, called Global Strategic Alliances, briefed with forming partnerships as well as corporate development and licensing initiatives.
The main goal of the new division is to build strategic relationships with technology, social media, e-commerce and online gaming companies, as well as ISPs and OEMs , to push AVG’s security solutions in to new areas.
The GSA group will be headed by former McAfee vice president for global OEM sales Rocco Donnino, who now takes the role of senior vice president for Global Strategic Alliances at AVG.
“The security landscape is changing every day and AVG is excited to bring our brand of total security protection to the forefront in 2010 through initiatives like the Global Strategic Alliances effort,” commented ACG’s chief executive JR Smith.
“It’s not enough to offer protection for a computer and walk away thinking the job is done. The bad guys are trying a million different ways to compromise personal information, corporate data and anything they can get their hands on. AVG is committed to providing security coverage where our customers work and play in order to give them peace of mind.”
