ESET Partner achieves #1 rank in leading Japanese customer satisfaction survey for eighth consecutive year

Bratislava – Slovakia, October 21, 2020 – ESET, a global leader in IT and cybersecurity, today announces that its exclusive partner in Japan, Canon Marketing Japan Inc., has received the #1 ranking in the security products category of the Nikkei Computer’s customer satisfaction survey for the eighth year in a row.

Nikkei Business Publications, Inc. is the largest content provider in the country. The prestigious 2020 survey was completed by the IT departments of over 12,000 businesses and local governments, assessing providers across seven groups of criteria; Overall Satisfaction, Performance & Functionality, Reliability, Operability, Cost, Support and Intent to Renew. Respondents assigned satisfaction scores to their selected products on a scale from Satisfied to Dissatisfied for each sub-category. Final scores were calculated as an average of all given points in each respective sub-category.

Canon Marketing Japan Inc. won first place in the survey and is noted as particularly competitive in pricing, performance and functionality – having exceeded the industry average for the last five years. ESET’s portfolio of Endpoint Security solutions, a central part of Canon Marketing Japan Inc.’s security product portfolio, combines multi-layered antivirus capabilities with intuitive software and a low system footprint. The result is award-winning, comprehensive protection for organizations of all sizes.
