AVAST expanded its SMB portfolio and products compatibility.

The avast! Business Solutions portfolio has recently expanded to include avast! SecureLine VPN, providing safe public hot-spot connection. This solution is both conveniently packaged and favorably priced, from 5 PCs and up, to fit the needs of small and medium businesses. This solution is offered exclusively via AVAST Business partners.
