AVG has upgraded its security protection software for SMEs and consumers with the release of AVG Internet Security 8.0.

The product protects users against a broad spectrum of security threats including web exploits, malware, rootkits, system intrusion and spam.

AVG 8.0 delivers a significant number of new benefits to users designed to deliver enhanced protection against the latest web-borne threats, without sacrificing the product's signature efficiency and unobtrusiveness, said AVG.

Karel Obluk, CTO at AVG Technologies, said, "AVG 8.0 expands upon our traditional strengths in anti-virus and anti-spyware with the integration of the LinkScanner real-time safe searching and surfing technologies, obtained through our acquisition of Exploit Prevention Labs last December."

In addition to the LinkScanner web exploit protection, other new benefits include faster scanning performance through a multi-threaded scanning engine that leverages the latest multi-core hardware, protection against rootkits and system intrusion, security for MSN and ICQ instant messaging, and detection of infected file downloads.
