“The security of our organization is extremely important, not because we have secrets to hide, but because it is essential to protect our data and not lose years of priceless work.”

A Green NGO Protected by Bitdefender

Ecoteca is a small nonprofit organization based in Bucha­rest, Romania, that is involved in environmental protection. Their mission is to protect the environment by supporting small projects that change things in a good way. As their mission statement outlines, “We know that together it is easier to achieve relevant results. We believe in the power of little things that make a huge difference.”

Ecoteca organizes national awareness campaigns in schools and business offices with the aim to encourage people to col­lect, reuse, recycle, and recover waste electronics and other products. Their main focus is on public policies that encourage recycling.

With the help of TechSoup Romania, the organization was able to access affordable Bitdefender technology. The donated software enabled the organization to maximize the impact of their projects and better communicate their achievements.

“This offer for nonprofit organizations though TechSoup was the perfect opportunity to access a premium product and give up using freeware antivirus,” says Raul Pop, programs director of Ecoteca. The Bitdefender software was installed on a computer where it protects the work of four to five volunteers.

“The security of our organization is extremely important, not because we have secrets to hide, but because is essential to protect our data and not lose years of priceless work,” says Pop.
