Bitdefender Launches 2013 Beta Testing Program and Competition

Creator of Leading 2012 Antivirus Software Opens the Power of Safepay and Other Innovations in Latest Product to Testers; Offers Rewards for Early Adopters (May 09, 2012)

BUCHAREST, ROMANIA -- (Marketwire) -- 05/09/12 -- After a year of praise, innovation and awards for its 2012 antivirus software, Bitdefender today announced the opening of its much-anticipated 2013 generation software for public beta testing.

The cutting-edge security company is offering beta testers the chance to further raise the bar for the global computer security industry by helping make its award-winning software even better. Prizes for the best beta testers of the 2013 generation software include a tablet, a laptop, a Windows Phone and 100 Bitdefender 2013 licenses.

"The 2012 version became the antivirus software to beat for the entire industry -- the ultimate measure of quality," said Catalina Albisteanu, consumer line product manager, Bitdefender. "Now, with the 2013 version, we are facing the tough challenge of surpassing the standards we have set for the industry and ourselves. To accomplish that, we are looking for elite beta testers to help us create an elite product."

Bitdefender 2013 sees the launch of the Safepay secured-browser, which seals online transactions and at-home banking in a tamper-proof vault. Safebox offers the convenience of online storage secured by Bitdefender encryption and Autopilot offers a mature, reliable technology that needs no babysitter. Parental Control, Anti-Theft and more tie a secure knot over the 2013 package.

The past year could be called "The Year of Bitdefender" -- a year in which the company pulled easily ahead of the rest of the antivirus industry. The innovation of Bitdefender's 2012 products won the world's top awards and placed the company further into the lead of its industry worldwide.
