Back in 2002 when businesses would traditionally purchase a suite of anti-virus signature detection based solutions from one vendor, Helen Hall started a business in the basement of her home, with the objective of offering her customers a diverse range of security solutions to better match their specific company requirements.  Anti Virus Reseller Ltd  was born on 22nd October 2002 and now in 2017, we are proudly celebrating AVR’s 15th birthday!

The refreshingly unique AVR approach was welcomed from day one by both customers and vendors.  Instead of aligning with just one supplier, AVR offered open, honest, unbiased advice to ensure the solutions they purchased were the very best options for their businesses.  Today, that business model stands stronger than ever with our range of solutions now including a comprehensive selection of threat protection including email, web, next generation endpoint protection, data protection and compliancemanaged security services and mobile device management along with the traditional anti-virus and firewalls.

Cyber attacks, data breaches, malware and ransomware, have become common phrases in our vocabulary and awareness of personal data security is greater than ever before. Yet surprisingly, many businesses and organisations still have insufficient and inadequate information security threat protection and are at risk of breach.

With over 230 customers, many of whom have been with AVR for a number of our 15 years, AVR values its trusted IT security adviser status.  Working with over 30 major vendors we invest time to understand the key features of each of their products so we can suggest the most appropriate solution to meet the needs of each specific business.

To help celebrate our 15 years, we held a party at our Twyford offices and were joined by vendors, partners, suppliers and staff.  All of the usual party ingredients were in place including a cake, party bags and balloons and we included a fun casino too!  Thanks to all those who joined us or sent congratulatory messages.
