ESET, the leader in proactive threat detection, today announced that they are participating in GITEX Technology Week 2010, which is being held from October 17 - 21, 2010 at the Dubai International Convention and Exhibition Centre (DICEC). The security vendor plans to showcase their latest security solutions, ESET NOD32 v.4.2 antivirus, ESET Smart Security v.4.2 and ESET Mobile antivirus in addition to meeting channel partners and customers at Middle East region’s largest IT exhibition.
Speaking about their participation Mr. Neo Neophytou, MD of ADAOX, ESET’s Regional Business Development and Support Center said, “GITEX, being the largest technology exhibition in the Middle East, is a very important event for us. We plan to use the exhibition as a platform to promote our flagship products ESET NOD32 antivirus and ESET Smart Security as well as ESET Mobile antivirus to a much wider audience. Over the last few years, ESET has experienced tremendous growth in this region and through our participation in GITEX, we look forward to generating new sales leads and increasing our visibility and market share even further. GITEX also presents us with the opportunity to meet our existing and potential customers from across the Middle East and Africa under a single roof.”
ESET has been participating in GITEX for the last seven years and has received great response year on year. At the exhibition, ESET plans to launch new products, promote the latest versions of its best-in-class products such as ESET Smart Security, ESET NOD32 antivirus and ESET Mobile antivirus and recruit channel partners for newer markets. The company also hopes to position ESET as the ideal security product for the SME and Enterprise segments as it is the lightest and fastest security solution available on the market today.
Technology experts from ESET will be on the GITEX stand to meet with visitors and run demonstrations of ESET Smart Security, ESET NOD32 antivirus for Windows, the beta 2 releases of ESET NOD32 antivirus for Linux Desktop and Mac OS X as well as ESET Mobile antivirus for Windows Mobile and Symbian smartphones.
ESET has been consistently doing well in all independent tests conducted worldwide. Apart from being the fastest growing antivirus solution in the world, ESET NOD32 antivirus 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 was the first security vendor to reach the 50-award milestone when ESET NOD32 was awarded its 62nd VB100 % award from Virus Bulletin, a widely-respected independent comparative testing group. Coupled with innovative features such as the ThreatSense engine, our security products are equipped to provide speedy support and proactive protection to customers based anywhere in the world. Since our last participation in GITEX, ESET has achieved new milestones in IT security and our award-winning solutions provide a level of protection never achieved before,” added Mr. Richard Marko, Technology Director, ESET.
Senior global executives from ESET will be flying in to Dubai to meet with customers and partners at the exhibition. Technology experts will also be available at the stand E1 - 20, Hall 1 at GITEX Technology Week 2010 to demonstrate the features and benefits of ESET's industry leading security solutions.
