Avast (LSE:AVST), a global leader in digital security and privacy products, has donated $500,000 to The Shadowserver Foundation, a nonprofit security organization working behind the scenes to make the internet more secure for everyone. For more than a decade, Avast has partnered with Shadowserver by sharing threat intelligence with the foundation. The partnership is based on the belief that combining forces is paramount in fighting against bad actors, cybergangs, and nation-states from spreading their malware.
