What is Threat Labs & Why did AVG build it?
Threat Labs is AVG’s latest security tool, continuing our commitment to malware and virus detection and eradication. With an Internet security and protection policy built heavily around the concept of 'scan before you leap', AVG Threat Labs offers the same kind of pre-click analysis as our unique LinkScanner® real-time surf and search technology, though at a far more comprehensive level.
AVG Threat Labs is a fast and easy route to website security, offering quick search functionality with its 'Big Search' URL address box, as well as clear and comprehensive website security reports presented in a simple-to-follow graphical format.
How to read an AVG Threat Labs website report
AVG is dedicated to taking virus detection and malware exposure to a deeper and more granular level in order to keep users safe online. That’s why we invented AVG Threat Labs, a new, highly-developed level of security inspection which offers users the ability to submit a website's URL address and receive an instant report detailing the site's trustworthiness.
What does AVG do that others don't?
AVG is unique, but then you'd expect us to say that wouldn't you? The reason AVG really is exceptional is due to the way the company sits in the increasingly crowded security market. With a business model built around a free layer of core PC and Mac-based protection, no other company boasts as much user credibility as AVG. This is crucial for a security company as we are defined by the trust we engender within our user community.
