The AVAST Free for Education program, which launched in November 2012, approaches the two-‐million-‐protected computers mark, freeing up about $20 million of US education budgets.
Six months since its launch, AVAST Free for Education covers nearly 2 million computers and servers belonging to over 1,400 schools, districts, universities, libraries, and other educational institutions. At market price, these institutions are saving $20 million per year by getting the AVAST enterprise-‐level protection for free.
“By now we are protecting computers for about 7 million students,” said Vincent Steckler, Chief Executive Officer of AVAST Software. “As the National Center for Education Statistics puts total US enrollment just over 75 million, we’re protecting roughly 10% of US students, which keeps us on track for the 30% market share we expect to have by the end of 2013.”
