(Alliance News) - Consumer cybersecurity firm Avast PLC said Thursday it is rolling-out a new router security service to Italian mobile operator Wind Tre.

Avast said Wind Tre is the first of its customers to add router security for the FTSE 250-listed company's Wind Family Protect subscription.

"We are delighted that we completed the second phase of our Wind Family Protect product roll-out, with the availability of added router security for Wind subscribers in Italy," said Peter Hobbs, VP Global Mobile Partnerships at Avast.

Hobbs continued: "We share a common goal with Wind Tre in providing converged digital protection for Wind customers using the Wind Tre network, across their devices, both in the home and on-the-go."

Avast said its Wind product already offers mobile security, based on the company's own technology, but the new router-based security offers an "additional level" of security.

"This is the first offering globally of a truly unified, centrally managed, and easy-to-use in-the-home and out-of-the-home protection solution," added Hobbs.

Shares in Avast were 0.7% lower in mid morning trade in London on Thursday at 333.91 pence each.
