Additional Information

ESET, the Slovak security software firm, headquartered in Bratislava, is planning to expand its research and development centres in the Czech Republic with an investment of € 8.30 million.

The Czech sites currently employ approximately 100 people. The main reason for the expansion in the Czech Republic is the abundance of high-quality and qualified experts in the Czech labour market.
