AVG acquires desktop, mobile VPN firm Privax


AVG has acquired desktop and mobile privacy firm Privax in a deal worth up to $60 million.

Announced on Wednesday, the antivirus solution provider said the acquisition will add Privax's HideMyAss! Pro VPN service to its existing portfolio and expand AVG's mobile security offerings.

Privax, which caters for over 250,000 paying subscribers worldwide, offers the HMA! Pro VPN proxy service as both a premium and free solution for devices.
