Tettnang/Graefelfing, 17 June 2008 – Avira has opened a new regional office in Graefelfing near Munich. The IT security company is expanding both internationally and in the domestic market creating a local contact point for users and resellers in Southern Germany.

The new team, which consists of sales and marketing employees, will push the growth of Avira in the region. The Avira solutions for business and private users, which are available in the new version 8, are a good foundation for success. The team will also be focused on the development of existing partnerships and in establishing contacts with new resellers and end users.

“Although we are growing internationally, we still have important roots in the domestic market. Our customers like us because we have many technical advantages such as the strong detection and performance. When deciding to buy Avira, the seal of quality ‘IT security made in Germany’ and support in English and German also plays a vital role “, explains Tjark Auerbach, founder and CEO of Avira. “The advantages of a branch in Gräfelfing are quite obvious: We will be more agile in Greater Munich and are closer to our users and partners.
