Melbourne distributor becomes Bitdefender’s top regional partner

BIDEFENDER HQ, January 21, 2014 – Bitdefender, the creator of industry-leading antivirus software solutions, and leading IT security software republisher SMS eTechnologies today announced a partnership that will offer top-notch security in Australia and New Zealand. The Melbourne-based distributor became Bitdefender’s main partner in the region.

The two companies joined specialties to facilitate access to the #1-ranked anti-malware technologies. Bitdefender’s business solutions available in Australia and New Zealand through SMS eTechnologies include cloud security, endpoint protection, critical server and gateway services protection.

"We are delighted to start working with Bitdefender and to offer our business clients the world’s most outstanding security solutions,” SMS eTechnologies CEO Colin Westbury said. “Their multi-awarded technical expertise and our enriched local know-how make this alliance already successful.”

This year alone, Bitdefender won three PCMag Editor’s Choice awards, the global #1 spot in rigorous testing by independent analysis firm AV-TEST, Product of the Year by AV-Comparatives, and a VBSpam+ Award that made Bitdefender software the most awarded in the history of anti-spam testing by independent analysts from Virus Bulletin.

“As cyber-crime rates rise steadily in Australia, we needed a witty and tech-savvy partner in the region, and SMS eTechnologies came as the natural choice,” Bitdefender Channel Marketing Manager Cristian Corabu said. “We trust that this new partnership will easily deploy the world’s best antivirus software in companies that want to bring a new level of protection to their employees and customers.”
