What some participating institutions have said...

“We’ve pretty much tried them all (antivirus solutions) and the fact that Avast doesn’t cost anything is just an added bonus. We have saved about $14,000 by using the Avast Free for Education program. The saving is allowing us to buy other software, which will save our technicians countless hours. Even if we did pay for it, I’d still choose Avast!"

Stephen Thomas, Information Services,
Putnam County Schools, Florida

"Now that we have seen the product in action, we can see that we are not getting a washed down or light version. The product is solid. Our savings in licensing alone are around $20,000 per year. Our savings in labor is probably another $20,000 from not dealing with infections that our old product would not stop."

Joe Machado, Network Analyst,
ABC Unified School District, Cerritos, California

"I have had 0 tickets for viruses since the Avast Free for Education license. Zero. Avast rocks! I recommend you to everyone and have for years. It is hands down the best. Keep doing what you do!"

Jeremy D. Allen, IT Director,
Covenant Christian Academy, Los Angeles

All we ask from you
is a little help...

Educational institutions have received over 4.5 million free licenses for our enterprise-grade antivirus, saving each an average of $14,000 a year. Imagine where else you could invest those savings.

In return, all we ask is that you announce your decision to use Avast and let your students, teachers, and parents know about our Avast Free Antivirus. We'll provide resources for you to use.
