New products demonstrate BitDefender’s commitment to providing SMBs with the most advanced security solutions available

MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif. – June 25, 2007 – BitDefender®, a global provider of award-winning antivirus software and data security solutions, today unveiled three new comprehensive Microsoft Windows and UNIX-based security solutions for small and mid-sized businesses (SMBs). BitDefender Security for Mail Servers (Windows and UNIX platforms), BitDefender Security for Exchange and BitDefender Security for Samba are all now fully available to provide SMBs with the industry’s strongest and most sophisticated security solutions in the marketplace.

BitDefender Security for Mail Servers and BitDefender Security for Exchange bring together the most advanced antivirus, antispyware, antispam, antiphishing, and content and attachment filtering engines to secure the mail traffic of both businesses and service providers alike. Compatible with the majority of existing e-mail platforms, the products offer businesses reliable protection against the most sophisticated threats from emerging malware and attempts to steal confidential and valuable data.

BitDefender Security for Samba provides antivirus and antispyware protection for Samba network shares. By scanning all accessed files for known and unknown malware, it keeps network users safe and helps businesses comply with data protection regulations. With an open source, BitDefender’s highly flexible vfs module can be compiled against any Samba version, making it the best choice for this popular Unix-based system.

“BitDefender has elevated its commitment to delivering solutions that simply can not be matched in the marketplace in terms of proactive protection to malware threats,” said Marius Militaru, BitDefender’s SMB Product Marketing Manager. “We are very proud of the new and enhanced capabilities offered in these solutions, and we are confident that through the use of these new products, we will quickly expand the number of SMB users devoted to the BitDefender brand.”

All of the new SMB products incorporate B-HAVE™, BitDefender’s patent-pending heuristics technology, which offers proactive protection against zero-day threats. B-HAVE analyzes the behavior of potentially malicious code inside a virtual computer, eliminating false positives and significantly increasing detection rates for new and unknown malware.

BitDefender’s Exchange and Mail Server products offer accurate Image Spam filtering. Instead of analyzing the text within image spam messages, BitDefender’s Image Spam Filter learns and tracks the common characteristics of image spam based upon similarities in color content and proportions of the images.

Lastly, to better protect against new spam, the BitDefender Lab has created NeuNet, a powerful, new antispam filter integrated into BitDefender Security for Exchange and BitDefender Security for Mail Server products. NeuNet is an intelligent technology that pre-trains itself on a series of spam messages and learns to recognize and track new spam based upon patterns within the messages it has already examined.
