EgoSecure and Bitdefender - Two Experts Join Forces in Their Fight Against Data Loss

11, 2012

The Bitdefender antivirus engine will boost the power of the new EgoSecure solutions

The new version of the leading-edge endpoint security solution EgoSecure Endpoint will be launched end of November. For the Ettlingen-based software vendor, the close dialog with more than 900 customers is a decisive factor and contributes greatly to the development and enhancement of the EgoSecure security solutions. To address their customers’ requirement to integrate a powerful antivirus engine with the EgoSecure endpoint security products, the technology leader selected Bitdefender, another leading-edge solution, as their partner to add antivirus protection to the EgoSecure portfolio. Bitdefender has received several awards for its high detection rate and unique speed of responsiveness.

Soon, the new version of the EgoSecure Endpoint security solution will be launched and made available to the customers. With this new release, security expert EgoSecure has integrated the Bitdefender antivirus engine, a centralized firewall administration and an effective folder encryption mechanism to enable organizations to have all major endpoint security problems under control with one single solution, based on one single management system, one single database and one single console.

For Sergej Schlotthauer, Managing Director of EgoSecure, “the partnership with Bitdefender and the integration of the Bitdefender antivirus solution is an important step to help us realize our product vision. After a comprehensive test phase, Bitdefender, with their convincing best-of-breed technology, was the only possible partner for us. Our cooperation was highly professional, and the technical implementation of the software development kit (SDK) has impressed us a lot.”

“While new awards and recognitions confirm Bitdefender’s top rated security solutions in independent testing, licensing our technologies with partners such as EgoSecure certifies us and our anti-malware technology on the market, where dangerous threats appear every day,” said Peter Laakkonen, Bitdefender’s General Manager of OEM and Technology Licensing. “End users will greatly benefit from our partnership with EgoSecure and from their integrated solution to protect the end points against the various cyber-threats.”

The Bitdefender technology was selected and acknowledged as the number 1 solution by several leading non-profit test organizations. Winning one accolade after another, the security vendor was able to demonstrate that their solution is able to detect new viruses more quickly than competitive products – a decisive factor when it comes to securing corporate endpoints. Like Bitdefender, EgoSecure is committed to ensure its leadership position, for instance, by providing immediate support after the launch of the new Windows 8 operating system. Meanwhile, the beta phase of the new version is ongoing, and the company invites all interested customers to thoroughly test the solution. Additional information can be found under:
