A history of freedom: An interview with Avast's founders

Jul 5, 2018 11:55AM PDT

Sometimes, taking a look back can give you exactly the perspective you need. We recently sat down with the founders of Avast Software to learn about how things began.

Avast was founded in a world with a profound lack of freedom; our founders navigated the changes over the years to help build Avast as we know it today: a company helping hundreds of millions of people enjoy true freedom online.

The history dates back to Communist Czechoslovakia in 1988, when Eduard (Eda) Kučera and Pavel Baudiš started the Alwil cooperative.
