Bitdefender became the first European company to partner with TechSoup on the global expansion platform, giving 1 million registered users access to its security expertise and technologies.

After the programme launched in 2012, the programme quickly expanded into new countries. By 2015, Bitdefender became the first European company to partner with TechSoup on the global expansion platform, giving 1 million registered users access to Bitdefender’s security expertise and technologies.
