BitDefender expands sales channel network into Ireland Thursday 17 May 2007 PDF Print BitDefender antivirus solutions will be distributed throughout Ireland under a sales agreement with ‘Partners in Europe’ of Shannon, County Clare, Ireland. Founded in Belgium in 1993, Partners in Europe (www.pie.ie)is now one of Ireland’s fastest growing technology companies, providing channel development and support for leading international software and consumer electronics brands. Commenting on the agreement, Kieran Sheahan C.E.O of Partners in Europe said that he was delighted to have signed an agreement with BitDefender. “We have seen that BitDefender is having phenomenal success in Europe and there is no reason why we cannot achieve similar success in Ireland.” Although established initially to sell into the European markets, Partners in Europe also operates as a distributor to retailers throughout Ireland. “The Irish market is very different to the UK or the European continent,” says Kieran Sheahan. “Because of the rural nature of the country, we are selling to a large number of independent local retailers as well as the B2B business sector.” “We were looking for an antivirus solution and BitDefender fits our product profile. We picked it up from the Internet reviews and as well as offering good product performance, BitDefender has achieved excellent positioning in France and Spain and across Europe generally. It is also making rapid progress in other English speaking market areas, such as South Africa.” “We believe there is ample scope to build on this success for BitDefender in the Irish market. What impressed us was the 24 x 7 free technical support, which is a clear advantage over competing products. Other features such as parental control for Internet use are also important to our market. And the whole ‘two for one’ package represents exceptional value for money.” Kieran Sheahan concludes, “These are the differentiators which make BitDefender an easy antivirus solution to sell. There is a buzz about BitDefender and we are looking forward to bringing it into the Irish market place.” About BitDefender® BitDefender is a leading global provider of security solutions that satisfy the protection requirements of today's computing environment.
