Speaking on the new partnership, Mr. Neo Neophytou, Managing Director of ADAOX Middle East, said, “Al-Jassim is a well-known and well respected company in Saudi Arabia with an extensive network of IT retail outlets called PCNet. Al-Jassim’s market knowledge and experience combined with strong after sales service and technical support facilities locally make them the ideal partner to distribute ESET NOD32 and ESET Smart Security across the Kingdom. We're confident that Al-Jassim’s expertise in the SMB and retail sector will help us increase ESET’s market share even further in Saudi Arabia."
Jamal Al-Jassim Electronics, which was founded 1983, mainly deals in the importing and distributing electronics, computers and communication equipments in Saudi Arabia.

“Al-Jassim is always on the look-out for the latest and best global products to bring to the Saudi market. We were approached by three antivirus vendors for distributorship in Saudi. We, however, decided to go with ADAOX as they have a winner - ESET NOD32,” explains Mr. Basheer Palick, Sales Manager at J Al-Jassim Electronics. “We evaluated ESET NOD32 and compared its performance with other antivirus solutions and found it to be the fastest, lightest and most trouble free antivirus. Al-Jassim’s major share of business has always been with the regional SMB sector and as such, NOD32 will have a competitive edge if you take both price and simplicity to use into account. We were also very comfortable with Mr. Neo Neophytou and his team and are happy with their support,” he added.
ESET NOD32, apart from being the fastest growing anti-virus solution in the world, leads the industry in terms of proactive detection and outperforms its competitors. It has a very small footprint needing minimal resource utilisation, taking up limited space on the user’s computer and allowing for faster performance. It also manages upgrades on its own and the user has just to set and forget it.
ESET NOD32 was recently awarded its 50th VB100 % award from Virus Bulletin, a widely-respected independent comparative testing group. ESET was in fact the first security vendor to reach the 50-award milestone.
