ESET goes in search of ‘Heroes of Progress’

Sliedrecht, 25 May 2022 – ESET, a global leader in digital security, today announces its search for ‘Heroes of Progress’. Committed to protecting progress through their digital security solutions and services, the company seeks the most visionary thinkers of the 21st century who have contributed to progress across a range of industries. The spearhead of this is that technology is central to progress.

All modern advances are supported in the least by technology; it gives us the ability to do things we otherwise would not have been able to. ESET therefore wants to highlight the ingenious, often idiosyncratic creators behind these amazing things.

Dave Maasland, CEO of ESET Holland, explains: “ESET believes in the power of technology. Because without technology, we as human beings can not solve the great problems of our time. There are many people who work daily for a better, cleaner and fairer world. It’s time to celebrate and highlight the people who make progress possible. That’s why we are looking for these people with our “Heroes of Progress” campaign. Think of it as an Oscar for those involved in technological progress. “

The nominations open today and close on June 26, 2022. You can nominate via Progress.Protected – Nominate your progress hero.

Contributions must outline in a brief overview the best, most progressive or progressive work, with a positive impact thanks to technology, of the nominee in question. This includes any technology that has been invented, adopted and improved and that represents a breakthrough for industry, society or society. An expert jury, chaired by ESET’s Chief Business Officer, Ignacio Sbampato, will judge all submissions and the global ‘Heroes of Progress’ will be published in September 2022 on ESET’s and websites.

Ignacio Sbampato, CBO at ESET, said: “If we imagine what the loss of the contributions of the creative thinkers of history would mean for today’s technology, it becomes clear why their efforts are to be welcomed. That is why ESET attaches great importance to the development of science, technology, research and corporate responsibility initiatives that our company pursues with our colleagues, customers, partners and the communities in which we operate.We are excited to begin our search for true ‘Progress Heroes’ so we can celebrate all their amazing achievements around the world and focus on the forward-thinking brains that are helping to make our planet a better place. “
