CyberDefender Partners With The Search Agency To Expand Customer Acquisition Efforts


LOS ANGELES, CA - August 25, 2009 - CyberDefender Corporation (OTC Bulletin Board: CYDE), an award-winning provider of PC security, Antispyware/ Antivirus Software, PC Optimization, PC Support, and Identity Theft Prevention solutions, said today that it has reached an agreement with The Search Agency (TSA), to manage CyberDefender's search marketing campaigns utilizing TSA's proprietary software. This will include new campaigns in search engine marketing (SEM), search engine optimization (SEO) and Yahoo's Search Submit Pro (SSP). The goals of TSA's efforts are to help scale CyberDefender's search marketing to a new level and, while doing so, increase the return on CyberDefender's expenditure for search marketing as well as improve the profitability of this activity.

"Search engine marketing has been a primary factor behind the growth we have achieved to date," said Gary Guseinov, CEO of CyberDefender, "and it will remain extremely important to us even as we dramatically increase DRTV/radio marketing and retail distribution. As we scale up our expenditures in each of these channels, our goal is not only to expand our sales and customer base, but also to achieve and build profits. We admire the success TSA has achieved with its results-driven approach to search marketing campaigns and firmly believe TSA will permit us to achieve even greater success in our campaigns. Early indicators are that this is in fact the case."

"The Search Agency is very proud to partner with a well-respected and growing company such as CyberDefender," said David Hughes, CEO of The Search Agency. "We have worked hard to develop a core competency in optimizing online marketing campaigns for subscription-based businesses. We intend to leverage every aspect of this experience to drive rapid improvements in CyberDefender’s key customer acquisition metric," he added.
