KFAR SABA, Israel, March. 31, 2011 /PRNewswire/ --

High Safe Technologies, a provider of powerful system protection software solutions, announced a strategic partnership with BitDefender®, an award-winning provider of innovative Internet security solutions. High Safe Technologies will integrate BitDefender's Antivirus scanning engine to provide layered security protection for consumers and small businesses that regularly use the internet for online transactions and send files using web browser, instant messaging, file transfer, or other methods of sending and receiving files.

According to the Internet Crime Complaint Center, a partnership between the FBI and the National White Collar Crime Center, Internet fraud increased by 22.3 percent last year, causing financial losses linked to online fraud to more than double. Additionally, a recent survey of social media users conducted by the Ponemon Institute, an independent research firm, found that identify theft from online banking was of greatest concern, followed by conducting e-commerce transactions.

Arina Lanetsky, Founder and CEO, High Safe Technologies, said, "With cybercrime increasing, the industry needs to look for better ways to protect consumers. Today, there is no device or software program that gives full protection from all possible internet fraud. Therefore, consumers must leverage multiple security methods to actively detect malicious software and keep themselves safe while they are on the internet. Through our partnership with BitDefender, we are bringing proactive protection to a new level and providing an innovative solution using BitDefender technology. We are also bundling the BitDefender Internet Security solution with the High Safe Technologies product to further protect consumers' financial and personal information from malicious attacks."

"We are pleased that High Safe Technologies chose BitDefender to help protect users from unsafe, malicious viruses that can affect users' online transactions and computer performance," said Peter Laakkonen, BitDefender's General Manager of OEM and Technology Licensing. With the combination of BitDefender's antivirus scanning technology and BitDefender's Internet Security solutions, High Safe Technologies will deliver a powerful and complete security solution that enables their customers to feel safe and secure.

High Safe Technologies plans to release its new product with BitDefender's award winning security technology later this year.
