Softwin is one of the first IT start-ups in post-communist Romania. With the development of Softwin AVX (AntiVirus eXpert), the AVX solution was rebranded under BitDefender name. BitDefender, headquartered in Bucharest, was founded in 2001. In three years, BitDefender opened its first offices outside Romania in the US, Germany, and UK. After Axxess Capital Investment Fund entered the company’s shareholding, BitDefender launches an enterprise range and virtualization security product in 2011. The company expanded with the acquisition of Profil Technology of France.

The company continues its expansion with over $600m investment from growth capital investor Vitruvian Partners in the following years. Creating a new subsidiary in Australia through the acquisition of assets from business partner SMS eTech was also a part of the expansion.

Now, in addition to its 1600 employees, the security company has more than 800 of BitDefender’s employees who are engineers and researchers. In terms of patents, BitDefender has 440 patents issued for core technologies. The company kees going to expand with new acquisitions like behavioral and network security analytics company RedSocks.

BitDefender offers a wide range of security products for home and office usage, as well as for businesses and partners. For home usage, the security company has special options for desktops, Mac and mobile including total security, Internet security, and more. For mid-market level enterprises and small businesses, GravityZone Elite offers different options. In addition to all security products, there are also special features including network traffic security analytics for threat detection.
