ESET announces today the launch of a global campaign commemorating its 30-year anniversary. The year-long campaign titled “ESET’s 30 years of Continuous IT Security Innovation” will take place at company locations world-wide with multiple events to celebrate how ESET will flourish, innovate and grow in the next thirty years.  

"For the past thirty years we have been addressing security challenges of digital worlds by pioneering the use of proactive technologies and artificial intelligence," said ESET’s global Chief Executive Officer Richard Marko. "We remain focused on innovation and delivering the best security solutions on the market."

ESET has come a long way since 1987. From its humble beginnings as a small startup, it quickly grew into a strong and stable IT security vendor conducting business in over 200 countries and territories. In every year since its beginning, ESET has recorded steady growth and currently stands as one of the largest privately owned security vendors in the world[1]. Moreover, the company still develops the majority of its software in one of its 12 in-house development centers.

“We firmly believe that technology is only as good as the people behind it,” says ESET Chief Technology Officer Juraj Malcho. “With almost 1500 employees, we still attract the most talented, ethical and passionate people set out to use their full potential.”

In the continued pursuit to develop the best protection possible, the company has broadened its portfolio from malware detection into new areas of security – threat intelligence, encryption, data backup, two-factor authentication and patch management among others. These offerings not only add depth to ESET’s growing catalog of security services, but they confirm ESET’s laser-focus on delivering security solutions for the future.

The campaign to commemorate 30 years of innovation in the cybersecurity industry will run for 12 months and includes regional activities around the world. All anniversary activities will be held under the umbrella campaign “ESET’s 30 years of Continuous IT Security Innovation” visualized through the ESET 30th anniversary badge, which will be omnipresent in all materials and activities for the upcoming year.

Apart from events and conferences, a significant component of the 12 month-long celebration will be focused on ESET fans all over the world. Throughout the anniversary year, ESET will be offering current and future customers a seasonal discount for both consumer and business products within ESET’s growing portfolio.

The celebrations will extend to social media as well, where ESET fans can share their favorite things about the company by using the hashtag #ESET30. Make sure to be part of the conversation to get the latest updates and be there to  celebrate with ESET.
