Kaspersky Lab's 100% Channel Commitment Keeps Stride with the Times

Woburn, MA - February 23, 2009 - A program is only as good as the people who can take advantage of it.  At the Kaspersky Americas Partner Conference - C3: Community, Collaboration and Commitment - Kaspersky Lab, a leading developer of Internet threat management solutions that protect against all forms of malicious software, unveiled the latest enhancements to the Company's Green Team Partner Program.  Recognized by VARBusiness as the 2008 "Client Security Company of the Year," and Business Solutions, as a "Best Channel Vendor", Kaspersky Lab business products are sold exclusively through the value-added channel. The Green Team Program, established in 2008, provides meaningful benefits and support to Kaspersky's channel partners.

Kaspersky Lab's award-winning security solutions enable partners to stand out from the competition by providing the industry's top rated security solutions.  Kaspersky Lab's support for the channel doesn't stop once the sale has been made. The Company, whose support team is in-sourced, provides a free dedicated partner support phone line to answer partner's questions, in less than two minutes. In addition to heightened support levels, important new enhancements have been added to The Green Team Channel Program, including:
