Since the launch of an English version of its security product, Qihoo saw positive feedback from overseas markets and has had 10 million overseas users, Li Tao, vice president of Qihoo and the lead of its international division, said on stage of TechCrunch Shanghai event today.

He claims worldwide-known security services have started studying Qihoo’s products. The key for Qihoo’s expansion overseas is creativity and innovation. He’s confident that Qihoo’s technologies, such as cloud-based solution, and business model are innovative and competitive worldwide. When it comes to overseas markets, Li said the room is big. They even see opportunities in markets who don’t trust countries like the US but welcome Qihoo as a third-party security service provider.

Qihoo is the leading Internet security service provider and now one of the largest Internet companies in China. It claims it has more than 90% a security market share and covers roughly 70% of the smartphone security market here. More recently it became the second largest search engine in China market. Last month it claimed its market share reached 22.85% in October and adjusted the company’s annual target to 25%.
