ESET Ranked by Deloitte as One of the Fastest Growing Technology Companies in Central Europe

ESET®, the global leader in proactive digital protection with a record 10 years consecutive VB100 awards for its ESET NOD32® technology, appeared in Deloitte’s 14th annual ranking of Central Europe’s fifty fastest-growing technology companies (Deloitte 2013 Technology Fast 50 Central Europe). The ranking is prepared based on the companies’ five-year revenue growth, says Deloitte.

“ESET is one of the most successful representatives of Slovakia, ranked second in the country with a growth of 303%. With its extraordinary growth over the past five years, (2008 – 2012), ESET also dominated Central Europe’s Big 5 subcategory, in which it ranked fourth,” reported Deloitte.

Further global expansion of ESET by opening branches in Germany and Australia, ESET becoming rated #5 in the IDC rating Worldwide Endpoint Security Revenue by Vendor 2012* published in Summer 2013 and the launch of new range of products and services, including ESET® Mobile Security for Android, new enhanced versions of ESET flagship products: ESET NOD32® Antivirus & ESET Smart Security® and ESET® Cyber Security products, have all contributed to ESET’s growth over the past few years. ESET's market success comes from its focus on the SMB sector, where it has built a competitive offering, particularly in Europe and North America, where it has its largest presence. ESET's main product offering focus remains on enterprise and consumer endpoint security.

“To be included in the ranking of fastest growing technology companies in the region for more than 10 times is a great recognition. Without our partners, talented employees and satisfied customers, such an outstanding growth would never be possible. Our thanks goes first of all to them,” says Richard Marko, ESET CEO.

* The rating was published in the IDC report "Worldwide Endpoint Security 2013-2017 Forecast and 2012 Vendor Shares (IDC #242618, August 2013). The report ranked software vendors according to earnings from sales of endpoint security solutions in 2012.
