Kaspersky Lab peppered the first day of its 2011 Americas Partner Conference in Riviera Maya, Mexico, with a slew of new product announcements and partner offerings as well as hints of upcoming technologies designed to strengthen its partners’ collective bottom line.

The first of the new offers is a small-business offering called Kaspersky Small Office Security, providing robust security in a package designed to fit the SMB market. “We are delivering premium small-business protection that includes central management, protection for up to 10 PCs and 2 servers, business data protection, employee web use control, password management, file shredding and other features, all complemented by high-quality support,” said Randy Drawas, Kaspersky CMO. Small Office Security will be available by the end of this quarter.
