Avast FREE for .EDU
« on: 26. November 2012., 08:18:47 »

Avast is now free for schools and libraries in the USA.


Starting this week, we have made most of our Avast antivirus products and solutions free for use by schools and libraries in the US. This is just the first step and if it is successful, we will extend it worldwide. We are doing this for a couple of reasons. First, even though schools need security products, in these tough budget times, they need the ability to focus their spending on teaching. A couple of us here at Avast used to run the government and education sales at Symantec some years ago. We know that schools spend a lot on security—money that could be better spent on teaching.




We started piloting this about a month or so ago and already have about 100 schools that have requested about 200,000 licenses. These schools range from small K-12 rural schools to large state Universities:
- Mississippi State University, School of Human Services   
- University of California (San Diego), Carver College   
- Ranger College, Worthmore Academy (IN and MN)   
- Excell Academy for Higher Learning   
- Evesham Township School District   
- Mount Clemens Community School District

We have made the free product easy to get. Just visit: to submit your application. The difficulty though is getting the word out. So, please feel free to forward this blog entry to your local schools, teachers, teacher unions, PTAs, etc.

This will make it definitely it the most popular antivirus in educational world overnight.

I KNOW how hard and expensive it is to find software, legally, to protect against virii. You end up spending a lot of money - money I always hated to spend :/
