Romanian-based cybersecurity company Bitdefender posted last year a turnover of RON 276.89, of which 95 percent represented exports on all continents, acording to a press release from the company.
These financial indicators refer only to the Romanian branch.
Acording to Hotnews.ro, the company has branches in 10 different countries, which are part of a holding registered in The Netherlands. However, the financial indicators corresponding to the entire group have not been communicated so far. It is expected that in 2016, Bitdefender will release its global financial indicators for the first time.
Bitdefender currently has 700 employes and estimates a 50 percent hike in its business this year.
According to Bitdefender’s official pres release, the cybersecurity solutions developed by the company are made in its research and development centers in Bucharest, Cluj, Iasi and Timisoara.
Data from the National Bank of Romania shows that in 2014 Bitdefender ranked on the 3rd place among companies that export IT and media services, out of a total of 681 which have reported dealing in such services.
Bitdefender also ranked on the 19th place among companies that export services of any nature, out of a total of 7,000 registered in Romania that have reported to export services.
Recently, Bitdefender launched on the United States market Bitdefender BOX, its hardware security solution for families , which is believed by tech reviewers to define a new category of security products- Security for the Internet of Things- and to replace current security solutions at some point.
According to Hotnews.ro, Florin Talpes (in picture), Bitdefender founder and CEO, said half of the devices connected to the internet are very poorly protected against informatic threats.
“This is a completely new product on the market and we believe it will be the future for consumers because we are dealing with the protection of the network and all the terminals, devices and gadgets that a family owns. It is important to know that the devices are protected wherever they are,” said Talpes.
