Sunbelt Software in Second Life, January 2007

Sunbelt Software Opens Publicly on Feb. 5th, 2007

Sunbelt Software, a Florida-based company developing anti-virus, anti-spam, and firewalling software, is opening its private island in Second Life on Feb. 5th, 2007, with a presentation by Sunbelt Software’s CEO, Stu Source (Stu Sjouwerman) at 3 PM SLT.

This island will support Sunbelt Software’s vigorous existing online user community of about 30,000 users, giving them an additional space where they will be able to join and meet together. Under the motto “We keep the bad guys out of your PC”, Sunbelt Software’s offerings in Second Life, besides their corporate building based on the real-life one (which includes meeting spaces), are a lot of freebies, shops, in-world games, and a community area where Sunbelt Software will host events — from discussions to quizzes —where the prizes will be free licenses to their software.

Sunbelt Software’s users will also have a way to register and login directly to Sunbelt Software’s island, where a small orientation area and a public sandbox await their pleasure.
