On its Facebook page, Avira, company that offers home and business security software solutions and is best known for its free antivirus product, ran a promo and gave computer users from all over the world the chance to get a free license for its new security product, Avira Internet Security 2012.

Avira explained at the start of the promotion that the duration of the free license depends on how successful the aforementioned promo is. You see, the promo was based on users liking Avira’s Facebook page; like the page and you are entered in the promotion and you get a free Avira Internet Security 2012. The twist was that for every 10,000 likes, Avira added another month to the duration of the license.

Everyone, including myself because I entered the sweepstakes, was hoping that by the end of the promotion, Avira would get 120,000 new fans on Facebook – that meant that the Avira Internet Security 2012 license would be good for a whole 12 months. An entire year’s worth of protection for no money whatsoever.

The thing is that the promo went better than expected. Avira got a lot more fans that 120K – it got a grand total of 163,549 fans. What does that mean for all the people who took part in this promotion? It means that they will get a free Avira Internet Security 2012 license that is good for 18 months. Everyone who took part in the promotion will be contacted via email; they will get a personal key for Avira Internet Security 2012 and they can use the product free of charge for a year and a half. Apart from the key, the email contains a download link for Avira Internet Security 2012 and instructions on how to use it.

For 2012, Avira rebranded its line of products. Avira Internet Security 2012 replaces Avira Premium Security Suite, Avira Antivirus Premium 2012 replaces Avira AntiVir Premium, Avira Professional Security replaces Avira AntiVir Professional, and Avira Server Security replaces Avira AntiVir Server. The 2012 lineup focuses on enhanced protection and ease of use. Sorin Mustaca, product manager and data security expert at Avira, explains:

“Our guiding philosophy in the design of our 2012 security software was ‘less is more’ – by which we give consumers, micro and small businesses more security protection with less manual configurations and decisions to make. In addition to overhauling our code, increasing speed and reducing complexity, we’ve taken on more ownership for automating security settings and resolving software conflicts to install easily and keep our users safe from tricky malware.”
