Security veteran Graham Cluley joins ESET’s WeLiveSecurity.com

Following a 60% site growth in 9 months, ESET bolsters it’s WeLiveSecurity.com by introducing new writing talent and launching a Latin American Spanish-language version of the site.

ESET, a global pioneer in proactive protection for over 26-years, announces that independent security veteran Graham Cluley is joining ESET’s WeLiveSecurity.com editorial team to write articles on the latest security news and research, providing opinion and advice to readers of WeLiveSecurity. ESET is also broadening its global reach by offering Spanish speakers a native version of WeLiveSecurity  from ESET Latin American lab at www.welivesecurity.com/la-es.


ESET’s WeLiveSecurity has enjoyed a 60% increase in traffic since April of last year.  Over 450 articles were published on the site in 2013, attracting over a million page views. Backed by ESET's network of security expertise, WeLiveSecurity.com publishes security news daily, as well as how-tos, papers, videos and podcasts. The site’s content attracts audiences from the ‘security curious’ to the ‘security savvy’, providing tips on topics such as how to remove adware from your computer to publishing deep-dive research on the latest threats.


„I am delighted over the news that Graham Cluley will join the editorial team of ESET‘s WeLiveSecurity.com. It is another proof that our news portal has established itself as powerhouse for IT security news and research articles,” says ESET Senior Research Fellow and WeLiveSecurity.com writer Righard Zwienenberg.


Graham Cluley is one of the security world’s most well-known voices, making regular appearances in the media sharing his opinions on the latest security threats.  He has worked in the computer security industry since the early 1990s, having been employed by a number of companies including Dr Solomon’s, McAfee, and, most recently, Sophos, where he acted as Senior Technology Consultant and Naked Security’s main writer, before becoming an independent consultant last year.


“Anti-virus software and security updates go a long way to protect millions of computers around the world from infection and hacker attacks,” said Graham Cluley, independent security expert.  “But the other half of the equation is to ensure that users are properly educated about the latest threats, with timely common-sense advice.  WeLiveSecurity has an experienced team of experts sharing information with readers on a daily basis, and I’m tickled pink to add my voice to theirs.”


After months of development and testing,  Latin American Spanish-language version of ESET’s www.welivesecurity.com/la-es has now gone live. Over the last 10 years, the security company has built a strong brand in Spain and Latin America - latest research* shows that one out of every two people in these regions recognize the ESET brand.


With an established foothold in the region, ESET wants to show its commitment to these regions by offering security best practices, easy access to the in-depth research, as well as the latest security news and advice.


"I’ve looked after ESET’s Latin American market for almost a decade, and I am so proud of what we have achieved so far,” said Ignacio Sbampato, Chief Sales and Marketing Officer at ESET. “Not only have we built a strong local presence across the region, ESET has never wavered from delivering award-winning products, service and support. This launch www.welivesecurity.com/la-es is further evidence of our commitment to our Spanish speaking community by providing free computer news, opinion and education.”
