SAN DIEGO – Sept. 24, 2007 – ESET, the leader in proactive threat protection, today announced it has again been named one of the fastest growing private companies in San Diego, and a top-10 finisher on the San Diego Fast 100. Based on revenue growth from 2004 to 2006, ESET ranked number seven on the list of 100 companies.

Each year the San Diego Business Journal compiles the list of Fast Growing Private Companies in the San Diego area. The ranking is based on a percentage of revenue increase over a three-year period and identifies the region’s top emerging growth companies.

“If you look at its year-to-year growth rates, ESET is clearly doing something right,” said Armon Mills, president and publisher of the San Diego Business Journal. “My tech friends inform me that ESET really does have the most comprehensive, yet simple-to-use antivirus product on the market. We just hope they stay in San Diego.”

Magazine’s Inc. 500 list. For these great honors, I salute our customers, partners and employees in helping create a product the market has obviously embraced. We look forward to being a major player in San Diego, creating more jobs and giving back to America’s Finest City.”
