The VAR Guy, By Charlene OHanlon
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.
The company also announced a new managed offering that allows
Kaspersky partners to provide an annuity-based service for their client.
Details on the new service were not available, but the company did note
the service will be available “fairly soon.”
