Romanian security company Bitdefender announced that it has obtained co-financing in value of RON 3.2 million (nearly EUR 720,000) for an innovation project.
The financing was granted during the competition of R&D projects The Stimulation of High-Tech Export, under the supervision of the Executive Unit for Financing Higher Education, Research, Development and Innovation.
Bitdefender will use the financing for the development of the B-have technology, which will be implemented in mobile security solutions, allowing to faster detect and analyze threats in mobile applications.
