a-squared Anti-Malware 4.5 got the Epsilon Award 2009!
During the annual European Software Conference, the Epsilon Award is given to the best software of the year.
This year’s Epsilon winner is a-squared Anti-Malware!
That award winning was not only based on our efforts, but also on the massive support of the a-squared Anti-Malware user community.
Thank you very much!
The prize includes:
- A piece of art by an European artist and a winners certificate.
- 200 Euro in cash. Emsisoft will donate that amount to the SOS Children’s Villages organization that was founded in Austria.
- Press coverage of our products.
- Entry to the Hall of Fame which means free full access for the winner only to future ESWCs.
Here’s a short explanation of the Epsilon banner from the ESWC website:
Epsilon is the fifth letter of the Greek alphabet and the Phoenician Word for sun derives from that root. An astronomer knows that there is a constellation in space called (Lambda)-Epsilon which we can see at the right hand side. So the Epsilon Award is a combination of Excellency, craftsmanship and visionary ability. These are characteristics of an outstanding programmer and a piece of true software art.
