Woburn-based Kaspersky Lab, which develops security and threat management solutions, said it will partner with social media behemoth Facebook with the goal of enhancing the network’s security online and offline.
Kaspersky Lab said it is now supplying Facebook with up-to-the-minute data about the latest malicious software threats worldwide, which will be used to protect users from inadvertently visiting malicious web pages.
“When Kaspersky Lab was founded 15 years ago, we could only imagine the ways technology would interconnect the citizens of the Internet and what a huge impact this would have on individuals and society as a whole,” said Steve Orenberg, president of Kaspersky Lab North America. “The mission of Kaspersky Lab has always been to protect people and businesses as they connect online, and there is no network that is leading the future of online connections like Facebook. Both companies are the best at what we do, so it makes sense to work together toward a safer Internet for all.”
