ESET Named a Winner of Everything Channel's 'The Best of IT ChannelVision Awards'

ESET®, the leader in proactive threat protection, today announced it has been named a winner of Everything Channel's 'The Best of IT ChannelVision Awards.' The company was recognized as the Best Solution Provider Product/Solution in the software category because of their award-winning NOD32 Antivirus, patented ThreatSense engine and industry-leading proactive protection from IT security threats.

The awards were presented on May 22nd, at IT ChannelVision Spring Event held in Grapevine, Texas. IT ChannelVision is the premier event for the IT channel, bringing Vendors together with North America's top System Builders and Solution Providers. For over a decade now these events have driven business in the IT channel through: Private Boardroom Appointments, One-on-One Meetings, Industry Insight Sessions and Networking events.

The IT ChannelVision Awards are the only awards in the channel voted on solely by the attending System Builders and Solution Provider Decision-Makers who directly influence their customers' technology buying decisions. After two days of boardroom presentations and one-on-one meetings, the decision-makers vote on the products and services presented at the show.

"We are honored to be recognized by the Channel community for providing superior products to our customers and partners,” said Anton Zajac, ESET CEO. "At ESET, we pride ourselves on setting an industry standard for technology, innovation and customer and partner support. We believe this award validates those commitments.”

ESET's flagship product, ESET NOD32 Antivirus, and ESET Smart Security, an integrated security solution for consumers and small-to-medium-sized businesses, deliver the most-effective, fastest, and lightweight solutions to eliminate increasingly sophisticated malware attacks before they occur. ESET is the only antivirus technology that has not missed an "in-the-wild” virus in Virus Bulletin VB 100 testing over the past nine years and was also named "Best Antivirus Product” of 2006 and 2007 by AV-Comparatives.
