ESET has announced the acquisition of Comdom Software, an anti-spam solutions specialist.

The company claimed that the acquisition of the fellow Slovakian company further increases its capacity for developing advanced security solutions.

The deal marks ESET's second acquisition since 2008 when it purchased Czech-based company Setrnet, expanding its offering to information security services.

Miroslav Trnka, CEO of ESET, said: “ESET is a research and development-oriented company that will benefit from this merger by tapping into the potential of Comdom's advanced anti-spam solutions.

“Building on the team of skilled programmers and researchers, we envision introducing new capabilities, along with injecting new potential into the development of security software.”
