BitDefender 10.0 Nominated for RetailVision Award

September 2006


BitDefender®, an award-winning provider of antivirus software and data security solutions, announced today that BitDefender v10.0, the latest version of the company’s flagship product line, was nominated for RetailVision’s Best Software Product Award. The award, along with the recent announcement of a technology alliance between BitDefender and Internet Security Systems (ISS), caps the company’s most successful month in the U.S. and Europe in terms of customer growth, product announcements and corporate partnerships.

Continuing to build on the ongoing success of its product lines, BitDefender’s BitDefender v10.0 product line was nominated for a “Best of RetailVision Award” under the category of Best Product Software. BitDefender v10 offers new enhancements and capabilities, including a powerful new rootkit detector, HTTP traffic scanning capabilities, a privacy protection module, and several additional features. BitDefender v10.0 will also include BitDefender’s new B-HAVE (Behavioral Heuristic Analyzer in Virtual Environments) technology, offering subscribers the most powerful heuristics available for proactively monitoring and detecting malware.

BitDefender also recently announced a technical alliance with ISS, which will integrate BitDefender’s antivirus and anti-spyware engines into the ISS Proventia Desktop product, offering enterprise users a comprehensive, multi-layered desktop protection offering. This alliance also significantly increases BitDefender’s use among large enterprises and governments due to ISS’ proven success in each space.

“Even with the introduction of new players and the continued marketing efforts of the other 800 pound gorillas in this space, in the end it is the technology that will make successful anti-malware companies. And that is why BitDefender continues to do so well,” said Eric Lewis Managing Director North America. “No matter how much our competition hopes, IT security will never become a commodity. Customers want the 100 percent coverage, automatic updates and the finding and protection against new threats measured in minutes, not hours. BitDefender’s customers have come to expect that from us, and awards and alliances like the one with ISS back-up that claim.”
