Charleston Carnegie Public Library

Thomaston Public School
“avast! is working really well on the computers that I've installed it on. We still have a lot of time left on a long term contract that I’m tempted to stop using.”
Ogle County Educational Cooperative
“Firstly, thanks to everyone at Avast for making this available. Our budget, campus wide, has been cut over 40% by New York State in the last 10 years. I wish you had done this sooner!”
“Due to lack of resources we have been without network antivirus protection for the past 3 years… I have been on the search for network antivirus, but I lacked the time… I really like Avast on my home PC so I knew it was protection I can trust. The burden of searching and everything involved in that was lifted, too. I could never have hoped for a solution to drop out of the sky and into my lap – so to speak. But, it did.”
Grand River Academy
“We are looking forward to starting the migration from AVG to Avast Free for Education.”
Gillespie Community Unit School District #7
“It’s great antivirus software. I like how it didn't weigh systems down, and it very easy to use... so I jumped at the chance to get licenses for our servers, administrator's workstations, and computer lab computers.”
Carver College Atlanta
“Thank you again for all that you do to support MBA programs across the globe.”
Terry College of Business, University of Georgia

Evesham Township School District
“I got Avast because it's officially recommended by the University of Florida.”
University of Florida
