BUCHAREST, Romania & SANTA CLARA, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Bitdefender, a global cybersecurity leader, is pleased to announce it was recognized as a vendor ‘Who Shaped the Year’ in the IDC report Worldwide Consumer Digital Life Protection (CDLP) Market Shares, 2022.¹
According to IDC, “In addition to its above market growth, Bitdefender’s rate of growth has accelerated. In 2022, Bitdefender launched password management, identity monitoring and protection, and identity threat protection.” The report also states, “Unlike several of the larger vendors in the CDLP market, Bitdefender is also a vendor of growing size in the commercial segment with the majority of this segment’s revenue derived from endpoint security products (e.g., endpoint protection platforms [EPPs] and endpoint detection and response [EDR]).”
Previously categorized by IDC as consumer endpoint security, the CDLP market captures the broader set of technologies that vendors offer to address a range of consumers’ cybersecurity and digital protection needs, including endpoint device security (i.e., antivirus), connected home security, parental controls, password management, cloud backup, identity protection, consumer VPN, and device care.
In highlighting Bitdefender’s growth in the segment, the IDC report notes the company’s “technologist DNA” and threat intelligence gained from a broad range of deployments, stating “Leading with its bench strength in technology, Bitdefender promotes its CDLP products to tech-savvy consumers. This strategy has contributed to the company’s solid business metrics in customer retention and net-new customers.”
