ESET awarded ‘Cybersecurity Made in Europe’ by ECSO. Thus ESET becomes the first Europe-based IT security company to be awarded the ‘Cybersecurity Made in Europe’ label by the European Cyber Security Organization (ECSO). The seal of approval underscores the quality and values of European security vendors that meet the criteria.
ESET, based in the Slovak Republic, is the first Slovak company to get the ‘Cybersecurity Made in Europe’ title, which the company sees as a further validation of its capabilities and dedication to protecting citizens, enterprises, and government bodies from cyberthreats.
“As the leading endpoint protection platform vendor headquartered in Europe, ESET is delighted to be awarded this label, underlining our commitment to our home in Central Europe, and to supporting innovation in the region,” says Andrew Lee, Director of Government Affairs at ESET.
Further said , “Whilst ESET is now very much a global company we remain proud of our European roots and our reputation for the quality of our products and services.”
ESET, which was founded and headquartered in Bratislava, has been working for more than 30 years to ensure that digital users worldwide may fully use the enormous potential of an increasingly digital environment. ESET has established efficient relationships between the public and private sectors at the EU level, utilizing both sectors’ experience. This has included research collaboration with major European science programs as well as the partnership with security groups concerned with cyberspace defense.
Companies must demonstrate the following to earn the ECSO’s ‘Cybersecurity Made in Europe’ label:
- the head office of the company is located in Europe;
- the majority of the employees are employed in Europe;
- the core market is Europe; and
- the 10 baseline security requirements specified by ENISA, as essential for products and services in information and communication technology to be considered secure, are complied with.
The Cyber Security Competence and Certification Centre in Slovakia was in charge of the certification procedure.
