Internet Security Company Joins the Fight and Helps Raise Awareness

MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA--(Marketwire - October 25, 2010) -  BitDefender®, an award-winning provider of innovative internet security solutions, today announced their partnership with the Morgan Pressel Foundation, developed by LPGA player, Morgan Pressel. The proceeds from the annual Morgan & Friends Fight Cancer Golf Tournament benefit cancer treatment and research at Boca Raton Regional Hospital in Boca Raton, FL and the Sylvester Comprehensive Cancer Center at the University of Miami. Proceeds are also used to fund a traveling mammography van.

"We are thrilled to take part in such a deserving cause, and to help raise awareness about breast cancer," said Ginger Yerovsek, BitDefender's Managing Director, North America. "Morgan & Friends has brought the cause to the forefront of the minds of LPGA fans and we couldn't be happier to help extend that awareness to our customers."

BitDefender retail boxes now proudly display the Morgan & Friends pink breast cancer awareness ribbon. Additionally, the BitDefender website's homepage displays their insignia.

"I began the Morgan Pressel Foundation with hopes of eventually extending tournament sponsorships to organizations such as BitDefender," said Morgan Pressel. "I am happy to have partnered with BitDefender in the first of such sponsorships for the Morgan & Friends Fight Cancer Golf Tournament and look forward to our exciting new partnership."

About the Morgan Pressel Foundation
The Morgan Pressel Foundation was created in 2010 by LPGA star Morgan Pressel to bring awareness to breast cancer through early detection and treatment. The Foundation primarily raises money through a golf event, the Morgan and Friends Fight Cancer Golf Tournament at St. Andrews Country Club. The fourth annual event will be held January 4-5, 2011. In just three years, the event has raised over $1.2 million. Morgan's mother passed away from breast cancer in 2003 and in January 2010, the Kathryn Krickstein Pressel Mammovan was unveiled in her honor. The Mammovan, in association with the Boca Raton Regional Hospital, travels around the Palm Beach County area providing easy access for a yearly mammogram.
