Security company Avira recently announced that it struck a deal with Dropbox, the cloud service that lets you upload files to the cloud, sync files across platforms, and share files with others.

As part of the partnership between Avira and Dropbox, new Avira users will be invited to download Dropbox. The millions of people who visit Avira.com and download Avira Free Antivirus, will be invited to download Dropbox as well.

Visit the Avira Free Antivirus webpage and, underneath the large green Free Download button, you will notice a piece of text that says “Includes Dropbox.”



Download Avira Free Antivirus, follow the setup wizard’s instructions to get the antivirus up and running and, while the installation process is completing, you will be presented with a product tour. Among other things, this tour will invite you to download Dropbox onto your PC.



Why is Avira promoting Dropbox? The answer is simple: Avira partnered with Dropbox and as part of the newly formed partnership it offers the cloud-based service to the millions of people from all over the world who visit Avira.com, download Avira security software, and install it on their PCs or Macs.

“We’re excited to partner with Avira to bring Dropbox to more people around the world. Dropbox and Avira are great complements in giving users peace of mind and keeping their most important stuff safe. Through this partnership, we’ll give Avira’s growing user base the ability to use Dropbox to easily access and share their information,” said Tom Hsieh, Head of Strategic Partnerships at Dropbox.

“With just a few clicks, Avira’s new users can have free antivirus protection across all their devices, plus the confidence in knowing that their data will be synced to every device and backed up in case of loss,” said Jason Radisson, Executive Vice President of Online at Avira. “People trust the Avira brand for security, and Dropbox offers the best user experience for secure sync and share, so this partnership is an ideal match.”
