Kaspersky readies managed services product
ChannelBuzz.ca, By Robert Dutt
Vendor plans slow but steady approach to building a channel for Service Provider Edition
It’s been a while in coming, but Kaspersky Lab’s MSP-friendly Service Provider edition is almost ready to go.
The product, which lets service providers managed anti-malware protection remotely for all their customers, was first discussed at last year’s C3 Partner Conference. A year later, and it’s almost ready to go – the product is just wrapping up its beta run at present, and this year’s C3 featured a video with Calgary-based partner E.S. Williams discussing its experience in the beta phase.
Details of the launch were sparse, but Gary Abad, vice president of North American channels at Kaspersky, suggested it would launch in March or April, once final details on pricing, licensing/subscription models and distribution are in place
