Avast's roots go back to 1988, when Czech researchers Eduard Kucera and Pavel Baudis encountered the ViennaVirus and began their quest to save the world's computers from it and others like it. In 2016, we acquired AVG Technologies, and now Avast has over 1,000 professionals around the world, working to outsmart those who try to do harm to people on the internet.
In September of 2016, Avast acquired AVG Technologies. For nearly 30 years, AVG and Avast have grown up side by side, providing great security products to hundreds of millions of users around the world for free. We continue to offer and support both the AVG and Avast branded products, and have transformed into a full service security company with a significant SMB Business, a Mobile Enterprise business and the largest consumer installed base in the world
