<p>Security software distributor AVG (AU/NZ) Pty Ltd has been ranked 8th in the 2009 BRW Fast 100 list which was announced in Melbourne on 28 October.</p>
<p>The list tracks the 100 fastest growing SMEs and judges them by annual revenue growth averaged over the last three years. The BRW Fast 100 list has highlighted the rich diversity of Australia's fastest-growing businesses over the past 20 years.</p>
<p>Peter Cameron, Managing Director, AVG (AU/NZ) Pty Ltd said: “Our average growth over the last three years has been 137%, which is quite an extraordinary rate. You can only sustain such growth with an enthusiastic reseller network, plus strong home and business product offerings, supported by dedicated, expert staff. And we have all of that.”</p>
<p>AVG (AU/NZ) is a wholly owned Australian company and the distributor of the AVG range of Anti-Virus and Internet Security software products in Australia, New Zealand and the South Pacific.</p>
<p>“AVG (AU/NZ) counts one in every eight Australians as a customer so our place at number eight on the BRW Fast 100 list is a neat coincidence. I trust we’ll be able to keep moving towards number one ranking over the next couple of years,” Cameron said.</p>
<p>The AVG Free product has led the world in basic anti-virus protection for many years. About 20% of AVG users in Australia pay for the extra protection of the commercial products.</p>
<p>In June this year the remarkable success of the award-winning AVG family of Internet security products saw AVG (AU/NZ) listed as the 15th fastest growing company in Australia in BRW's 2009 Fast Starters listing.</p>
<p>Cameron said: “Keeping on top of Internet security and the needs of our 2500 strong reseller network requires a dynamic approach to business. We'd like to thank our resellers for helping us to achieve our continuing growth.</p>
<p>“The functionality and performance of the AVG security solutions is supported by our exceptional customer service. This combination won us the Computer Troubleshooters’ Vendor of the Year Award in both 2009 and 2008. This award recognises the supplier which adds the most value to their businesses.”</p>
