Due to the growth of harmful activity in the cyberspace of Ukraine, ESET researchers continue to detect and report new cyber attacks.
In addition to suspending sales of products in russia and Belarus, ESET is terminating its cooperation with ESET’s russian distributor, I-SET Softwea. From now on, I-SET Softwea will not have the right to sell and distribute ESET products and services, or to communicate publicly on behalf of the ESET brand.
Some russian media outlets reported incorrect information about the existence and functioning of the alleged ESET office in russia, mistakenly naming the distributor of ESET solutions in russia – I-SET Softwea – the ESET office. Note that ESET Group, which consists of the parent company ESET, spol. s r.o., headquartered in Bratislava (Slovakia) and its 24 subsidiaries worldwide, does not own or operate any subsidiary in russia.
For ESET, the relationship with the exclusive distributor in Ukraine, its partners and customers is a priority. That is why the company will continue to help them in various ways – from supporting Ukrainian users to analyzing current cyberattacks.
In particular, the ESET Fund provides € 500,000 in assistance to Ukraine through non-profit organizations, namely the INTEGRA Fund and UNICEF.
In addition, to protect against cyber threats, Ukrainian users can obtain free licenses for ESET products, including workstation protection solutions, EDR tools and cloud sandboxes. Also, recently expired ESET licenses have been automatically renewed free of charge.
It is worth noting that ESET technical support specialists in Ukraine continue to provide round-the-clock assistance to users by phone +380 44 545 77 26 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
Also due to the growth of harmful activity in the cyberspace of Ukraine, ESET researchers continue to detect and report new cyber attacks. In particular, ESET experts recently recorded previously unknown malware for data destruction – HermeticWiper, IsaacWiper and CaddyWiper, targeting Ukraine before and during the Russian military invasion.
ESET has been protecting the digital world and advanced technologies from Internet threats for over 30 years. And although cyber wars are not always accompanied by real hostilities, but during the latter, harmful activity in the digital space is intensifying. That’s why ESET is doing its best to support users in Ukraine.
