Bitdefender and Globell are proud to announce their strategic partnership in the GAS region

Bitdefender, the innovative internet security provider, and Globell, a leading Brand Manager and Software Republisher in Europe, formed a partnership targeting Europe's core markets of Germany, Austria and Switzerland.

This new cooperation is another milestone for Bitdefender, and empowers Globell to further develop its growth strategy within German-speaking Europe.

"Bitdefender, due to its unique technology in the security space, which has allowed it to leave the competition far behind in the last few years, gives Globell another strong brand in an already outstanding portfolio." says Aston Fallen, CEO Globell B.V.

Globell and Bitdefender, which won the 2011 Best Protection Award from independent testing organization AV-TESTS, aim to turn this technical advantage into market share. Bitdefender achieved AV-TEST’s best overall score five times in the last year, leaving more than 20 competitors far behind and establishing a convincing lead in the security space.

"Globell is an established Brand Manager, well-known even outside Europe”, states Florin Baras, Global Channel Director at Bitdefender. "The main reasons for our strategic partnership with Globell are their profound market knowledge and their broad reach into the channel. We are convinced that Bitdefender can take great advantage of Globell's experience and solid relationships in German-speaking Europe."

Globell starts immediately distributing Bitdefender's consumer and business products in Germany, Austria and Switzerland, with special focus on the Retail channel. Globell is Bitdefender’s exclusive distributor for the Retail channel in the GAS region.
