BitDefender Antivirus and Security Solution Wins Gaming Endorsement From Steel Valor Online Game Studios

Endorsement Positions BitDefender as the Gaming Industry's Most Effective Security Solution

MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA--(Marketwire - January 24, 2008) - BitDefender®, a global provider of award-winning antivirus software and data security solutions, today announced that BitDefender Total Security 2008 has earned an endorsement from Steel Valor Online Game Studios, a Gaming web site that provides video game reviews, blogs, testing and opinions.

BitDefender is one of the few security providers in the industry to develop gamer-friendly features. BitDefender offers full protection, while not interfering with the user's activities. None of the major competitors in the security industry currently offer this feature, forcing users to decide between security and performance.

"BitDefender has the best gamer-friendly condensed security product that we have seen," said Ed Salsberg, founder of Steel Valor Online Game Studios. "We compared BitDefender to many of the better known security solutions and BitDefender was clearly superior with features geared specifically for gamers, including the option of Gamer Mode. BitDefender recognizes that gamers are an important piece of the net and offers solutions that others cannot match."

Traditional antivirus and other security providers are focused on protecting computer applications, while BitDefender is focused on new and emerging threats resulting from the emerging online lifestyle. BitDefender is an alternative to major brands in antivirus protection, offering the better protection, a more current focus and none of the "big business" hassles.

The BitDefender 2008 product line, which includes BitDefender Antivirus 2008, Internet Security 2008 and Total Security 2008, is designed to protect a wide variety of computer usage scenarios ranging from individual PC users and multi-PC families to SoHo businesses.
