AVG Technologies is to partner with retailer Maplin Electronics to boost its high street presence.


AVG's internet security and anti-virus software products will be available to consumers via Maplin's retail stores, mail-order service and e-commerce platform with immediate effect.


Tim Nicholls, product manager at Maplin, said: “For Maplin, the ability to offer its customers quality security products under a strong brand like AVG creates a favourable outcome for all involved. AVG is a very well-known and respected brand, which we feel will fit well with and complement the 15,000 products currently stocked at Maplin.”
