We are immensely proud of our employees and their achievements, and we are confident our new campus in Bratislava will attract many more to ESET, the cybersecurity industry, and to Slovakia itself.”
The future ESET campus will incorporate many features, including modern offices, apartments for visiting international ESET colleagues, an auditorium and multifunction hall, multiple student education facilities, private dining hall, canteens, laboratories, and a health and fitness center.
The new offices also will include a cutting-edge IT security research center that will enable ESET to remain at the forefront of digital security. The company plans to create 800 new jobs and attract professionals from around to globe to come work in the new hub of the cybersecurity industry in the heart of Europe.
