SYDNEY & AUCKLAND – May 9, 2012 – After a year of praise, innovation and awards for its 2012 anti-virus software, Bitdefender is opening up its much-anticipated 2013 generation 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 the top award-winning software even better. Prizes for the best beta testers of the world’s best antivirus 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 consumer line Product Manager Catalina Albisteanu. “Now, with the 2013 version, we are facing the toughest competition of all – ourselves. So we’re looking for elite beta testers for an elite product.”

In Bitdefender 2013, the Safepay secured browser seals online transactions and home banking in a tamper-proof vault, Safebox offers the convenience of online storage secured by the Bitdefender name 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 AV industry. The stunning innovation of Bitdefender’s 2012 products won the world’s top awards and placed the company further into the lead of its industry worldwide.

Bitdefender 2012 products won the coveted Best Protection 2011 Award for home users by AV-TEST after coming out as No. 1 in five straight industry-wide tests throughout the year and even reconfirmed its leading position this year. Bitdefender also won the Editor’s Choice award by leading technology portal CNet, the year’s Top Rated award by independent tester AV Comparatives, a security Product of the Year award by CRN, and more.
