ESET Helps Users Achieve Security 'Goal' with Football Promotion

ESET®, the global leader in proactive digital protection, has successfully completed its 'Buy and Win Competition' 2014. Coinciding with the football World Cup in Brazil, the contest placed users who had bought a licence to one of ESET's security products into a draw which then resulted in one lucky winner being awarded a top of the line Samsung 55” Smart UHD TV.

Elham Alizadeh, Channel Marketing Manager at ESET Middle East said, “We always try to introduce an element of fun into our contest and promotions. The football championships are a time when people across the world tune in to watch the best teams in the world compete. Tying the excitement of the World Cup in with our ongoing message of enjoying safer technology led us to creating this promotion. Giving users a chance to win a TV to enhance their viewing experience of the Final proved to be good incentive. We saw a rise in our online sales which means that now, more people are protected by our market-leading solutions. These products don't only provide the best security, but do so with minimal resource utilization.”

ESET ran the month long promotion from the 6th of June, 2014 to the 6th of July, 2014. Users participated by buying solutions from the company's portfolio of home products which includes ESET Smart Security, ESET NOD32 Antivirus, ESET Mobile Security, ESET Cybersecurity Pro, ESET Cyber Security and the ESET Multi-Device Security Pack 5+5. Each purchase of a product entitled the user to one entry into the draw while a single purchase of the  ESET Multi-Device Security Pack 5+5 resulted in 5 entries being made.

The prize draw was held on 9th of July, 2014 with the 55” smart UHD TV being awarded to Mr. Wasif Hashmi who purchased a license for ESET Multi-Device Security Pack (5+5). “ESET encourages its customers to utilize their computers, smartphones and tablet devices to their full potential while we handle the concerns of security on their behalf. We are very happy with the response we have received and already have our next promotion for our home users underways,” concluded Elham Alizadeh.
