Washington State non-profit chooses Walling Data Systems for flexible pricing and unlimited US-based support.

PR9.NET May 23, 2008 - CLAREMONT, NC – Jeremy Kettel, Network Administrator for Community
Youth Services in Olympia, Washington manages sixty workstations and three servers for this nonprofit organization that provides resources and a safe haven for at-risk youth.

When Kettel first came on board in February 2008, the organization was using CA eTrust Anti-
Virus on all their workstations, but Kettel wasn't happy with the level of protection the product was delivering. "The virus definitions weren't getting updated as frequently as I would have liked, and we needed something more centralized and easy to manage that would protect the network against a broad range of threats but wasn't going to cost us a fortune."

"We have a lot of shared data on our servers, much of it sensitive in nature that we really need to be sure doesn't fall into the wrong hands or become corrupted. Also many of our social workers aren't computer savvy and I worry that they will put data at risk without knowing it."

AVG: Affordable Peace of Mind
Kettel's research brought him to AVG and Walling Data Systems, the leading AVG Authorized Distributor in North America. "AVG Anti-Virus software offers both a high level of protection and a centrally-managed, easy-to-use solution. The central console enables me to manage all sixty workstations from one place, which was exactly what I needed."

By purchasing AVG through Walling Data Systems, Community Youth Services qualified for special nonprofit pricing and unlimited free US-based phone, email, and online support.

"As a nonprofit, the special pricing was definitely an added attraction," Kettel said. "We have to be extremely budget-conscious, and the licenses were affordable."

But the free unlimited US-based support offered by Walling Data Systems was what sealed the deal for Kettel. "I love that feature," he said. "I am the type of person who always buys the extended warranty on new products, because you just never know when you are going to need support. This is a lot like that except it came with the product for free, and it's unlimited. I couldn't ask for more."

Kettel also says that the process of purchasing AVG through Walling was just like using the software — quick and easy.

"From the first time I called Walling, the process was simple and transparent," Kettel said. "No probing questions or time-wasting chit-chat. It was straight to the point. The sales representative told me how much the AVG solution was going to cost us, gave me all the information I needed to get it deployed, and we were on our way."

So far, Kettel says, Community Youth Services has not experienced any problems with the AVG product, and it has exceeded his expectations. "There's nothing I don't like about AVG Anti-Virus," he concludes. "I use it on my personal computer as well, and you can't get a stronger recommendation than that!"
