One of the best ways to help Romania protect its networks is by continuing to implement new projects. Romania became a leader on the informational technology market. And, when I say this, I will give you just one example: here we have Bitdefender, a Romanian company that launched a revolutionary solution in cybersecurity named Box, strictly designed for domestic users. We already know that Romanian is the second language spoken in the Microsoft offices around the world,” Andrews underscored.
