AMSTERDAM and SAN FRANCISCO – February 17, 2011AVG Technologies, developers of the world’s most popular free anti-virus software, announced today the beta launch of AVG LiveKive™, a free, cloud-based storage solution that offers customers a completely new approach to safeguarding their most valuable information. AVG LiveKive provides simple, safe and reliable storage that makes the process of archiving and sharing content as intuitive and secure as keeping money in a bank.

„With AVG LiveKive, AVG is taking its passion and expertise in free security technology to the cloud-based storage market," said J.R. Smith, chief executive officer of AVG Technologies. „By storing information on our safe and secure servers, customers significantly reduce the temptation for thieves and hackers to attempt accessing files stored on an individual PC or mobile device.“

By LiveKiving™ their files, users can take advantage of five free gigabytes of leading-class secure storage as well as immediate access to content from all their synced devices. Moreover, AVG LiveKive´s ease of use transforms the perception of archiving from a cumbersome, memory-intensive process into a quick, efficient and natural method of guarding relevant information and content.

AVG LiveKive will be released in Beta version next week.
