October 24, 2011

LONDON, October 24, 2011 /PRNewswire/ –

ESET ranks among the fastest growing technology companies according to
Deloitte Technology Fast 50 Central Europe, placing 46th overall. In the
ranking, ESET achieved a 303 percent growth over the past 5 years and is the
only company to have placed in the “Fast 50″ ranking ten times in a row.

Additionally, ESET has ranked among the elite “Big 5″ group within the
Fast 50, which recognises those companies for consistently achieving fast
growth rates, but are too big to compete for the top spots in the main

“We are very pleased to be among the 50 fastest-growing technology
companies in Central Europe for the tenth year in a row. Thanks go to all
ESET employees around the world for their great effort, as well as to tens
of millions of satisfied ESET customers in more than 180 countries. We will
do our utmost to keep it up and continue increasing our customer base even
more this coming year,” remarked ESET CEO Richard Marko.

To determine the fastest growing companies, Deloitte reviewed fiscal
year revenues over five years (2006-2010), calculated the revenue growth
percentage over five years, and compared the growth of technology companies.
The entrants have to demonstrate consistent revenue over the entire 5 year
period. Software companies rank toward the top of the list, accounting for
45% of all award recipients. This year, the combined average growth in
revenue of the awarded companies reached 1 068 %, the 3rd highest cumulative
growth over the program’s 12-year history.

To underline ESET’s success, the company also ranked among top 10
European finalists in the prestigious HSBC European Business Awards, in the
“innovation” category.
