BitDefender and Zotac Team Up to Provide Innovative Anti-Malware Solutions

Graphics Solutions Manufacturer to Bundle BitDefender Internet Security 2009

BUCHAREST, ROMANIA--(Marketwire - November 16, 2009) - BitDefender, an award-winning provider of innovative anti-malware security solutions, and ZOTAC International, a leading manufacturer of motherboards and graphics cards, have teamed up to bundle BitDefender's Internet Security Suite to Zotac customers, providing them state-of-the-art anti-malware protection for desktops and laptops.

BitDefender's Internet Security Suite covers all the security needs of the Internet-connected family, providing firewall and proactive protection against viruses, hackers, spam and identity theft. Its family network management features help multiple computer families enjoy a safe online experience.

"Our customers, primarily active online gamers, face a constant threat from malicious activity online," said Carsten Berger, marketing director, Zotac International. "We selected BitDefender as a partner for anti-malware protection based on their award-winning technology, which allows us to add value to our customers, and to provide protection without hampering their user experience."

Unlike other security solutions, which rely heavily on a list of pre-existing viruses, BitDefender security solutions use proactive B-HAVE technology that identifies and blocks new and zero-day threats. This provides users the highest level of proactive protection for their online lifestyle.

"We are excited to partner with Zotac and have the opportunity to bring our innovative security solutions to their customers," said Peter Laakkonen, BitDefender's General Manager of OEM and Technology Licensing. "In partnering with Zotac, we are proving our continuous efforts to expand our customer base and provide consumers with the most reliable and comprehensive security solution available. Our customers can find out more about this at our website."

To take advantage of this partnership, Zotac customers, through the Hardware Product CD, can select the preferred language of BitDefender's Internet Security software to be downloaded from the Web.
