Emsisoft’s roots can be traced all the way to back to 1999 when their CEO Christian Mairoll kept receiving a nasty backdoor Trojan, “Back Orifice”, from so-called ‘friends’ via ICQ. As it forced the CD drive to repeatedly open and close, his curiosity sparked. How does this Trojan work? How do I get rid of it? It was then that the first line of Emsisoft Anti-Malware’s code was written.
By 2003 what had started out as a hobby project became an anti-malware company for the masses and has been growing its staff to 40 passionate individuals today. Their team of leading experts dedicates its time and effort to defending millions of customers from the never ending stream of online threats.
Today, Emsisoft is headquartered in New Zealand but maintains a global presence through local teams across all time zones. Malware doesn’t sleep, and nor do they.
ZEROSPAM Security was founded in 2003 by CISSP David Poellhuber, long before the cloud solutions trend hit tidal wave proportions. While other appliance-based or software-based Anti-Spam providers only recently developed a cloud offering, ZEROSPAM was cloud from day one. David had his heart set on this approach from the start because it made so much sense in so many ways: better security, less resource waste and a great business model.
The company’s headquarters are located in Montreal, Canada and ZEROSPAM Security serves thousands of mid-market and enterprise customers worldwide. The company also has strong reseller networks operating in North America, LatAM, EMEA and Europe catering to SMB and mid-market customers.
