Claremont, NC (PressExposure) December 17, 2008 -- Scott Mullins is the Network Administrator for CertiCell, a provider of products and services that facilitate the acquisition, repair and redeployment of aftermarket mobile phones located in Louisville, Kentucky. Heâs also a huge fan of AVG Anti-Virus, and insists that it cannot be outperformed by the competition.
âFirst and foremost, AVG just works. It keeps viruses out,â he explains. âMy job is demanding enough without having to waste time fixing computers that should not have gotten infected in the first place. Weâve used AVG Network Edition since our companyâs inception in 2005 and weâve never had a single instance of virus or spyware infection.â
Secondly, Mullins enjoys the small footprint AVG requires. âI like how AVG doesnât use a lot of processing power. Users canât even tell that it is running in the background, unlike McAfee or Symantec which tend to really bog down machines.â
Heâs so convinced AVG is the best solution, he uses it at home, too. âIâve been using AVG Free Edition on my personal computer for many years now, and Iâve never experienced an issue there either.â
Scott and two other members oversee the companyâs entire IT infrastructure, comprising 60 workstations and four servers servicing 60 employees scattered across Kentucky, Tennessee and Texas.
Even the best needs to be put to the test
When Mullins noticed that the companyâs AVG Network Edition licenses were due for renewal earlier this year, he decided to run a test on other security solutions to see whether any of them had improved since heâd last looked at them. He does not regret his decision.
âItâs always a good idea to do a little due diligence to make sure weâre still getting the best deal possible,â admits Mullins. âAs a network administrator, itâs important for me to test other products periodically. Now I can say, without a doubt, that AVG is the best antivirus solution because Iâve personally tested it against the competition.â
Mullinsâ evaluation encompassed competing security products from Symantec, McAfee, Trend Micro, and Microsoft. By the end of the testing period, his opinions remained unchanged.
âI quickly discovered that I wasnât going to be able to find another antivirus program that would beat AVG in the three categories that matter - protection, price and ease of use.â
AVG and Walling Data - âThe Ones to Beatâ
Around the time that the AVG licenses were up for renewal AVG Network Edition 8.0 was released. Realizing he might need some assistance in upgrading to all the exciting new functionality the newest version was offering, Mullins researched where to buy his renewal from..
âWalling Data was recommended by AVG Technologies themselves, so I figured I ought to check them out.â
Walling Data is the longest-standing and highest-volume distributor of AVG Technologies solutions in North America. Walling Data is also the only distributor to offer all its customers â resellers and end-users - free, unlimited, U.S.-based pre- and post-sales support. âIn no time, I was connected to a live, US-based sales person at Walling Data,â said Mullins. âI was very pleased with their pre-sales service - the representative was very helpful and got back to me with a quote right away. They also offered me a great deal on AVG pricewise.â
âWalling Data was great to work with. They provided free assistance with the upgrade and were extremely knowledgeable about the AVG product.â
Today, Mullins is more convinced than ever that AVG Network Edition is âthe one to beatâ when it comes to keeping networks virus-free.
âAVG performs better than the competition, is easy to use and, thanks to Walling Data, is very attractive financially. Switching to another security solution would not only have decreased our protection but increased our costs by about 25 percent.â
