gain momentum in the US and Canada in a big way; it's exciting to now be
a part of that," said McCarty. "When you look at the fact that ESET
protects 110 million people in 200 countries and territories, it's
nothing short of impressive. I can't wait to continue to drive the
momentum for ESET North America's business."

"With the US making up more than 20 percent of ESET's global revenue,
all eyes are on this region," said Richard Marko, CEO of ESET. "We spent
