BitDefender, an award-winning provider of antivirus software and data security solutions, is inviting Linux enthusiasts and professionals to crash test BitDefender Mail Protection for Enterprise Beta, the upcoming BitDefender antivirus and antispam solution for Linux e-mail servers. The most thorough beta tester will receive 1,000 German beers and a trip to BitDefender’s corporate headquarters in Romania, where they will attend meetings with Count Dracula, the BitDefender development team and other local luminaries.

“BitDefender likes to prove that its data security solutions are the most powerful in the market,” stated BitDefender Product Manager Alexandru Balan. “By allowing the best Linux enthusiasts in the world to put our new products through the most stringent tests, we are able to offer solutions that have been proven to withstand the worst possible circumstances.

Similar prizes will be offered by BitDefender to the first three runner-up contestants, with a special “BitDefender Crash Test Dummy” prize and title awaiting the creator of the most original way to crash the product.
