Dubai, UAE (PRWEB) June 10, 2006
ComGuard, the Middle East region’s leading IT security solutions provider has teamed up with Kaspersky Lab, a leading developer of secure content management solutions. The agreement will see ComGuard acting together with its business partners on a regional level with the antivirus solution from Kaspersky Lab as a Value Added distributor.
“Since several years we see it as our premier mission in ComGuard to provide our clients with the best state of the art technology to counter security threats”, says Herbert Kamensky, Managing Director of ComGuard. “We are sure that with Kaspersky Lab’s comprehensive and easy to use solutions we have selected the optimal protection for our clients”.
Despite all the measures taken today by enterprises and government entities the problems of viruses, trojans, worms and spyware are still on the rise and a change in this trend is not to be seen. Therefore it is of utmost importance to implement the optimal solution for protection against such threats.
Almost all enterprises use an antivirus solution of one kind or another today to protect themselves; however there are still security breaches happening with them. That is an indication that there are differences in the quality and performance of the different solutions used. Each user needs to be diligent to make sure to have the optimal solution implemented, which is mostly dependent on the total detection rate and speed of update of those solutions.
The successful detection and interception of malware depends on timely research. Kaspersky Lab has one of the largest collections of virus signatures in the world with over 184,000 samples and counting. The multinational antivirus and virus laboratory research teams work together to continually update the collection and develop antivirus tools. Kaspersky Lab is a proven campaigner against viruses, spyware and other malware, always responding proactively to the newest threats.
Antivirus databases are updated hourly, round the clock. During outbreaks, urgent updates will be issued in as little as thirty minutes after the newest threat appears. If a customer forwards a suspicious object or an object infected by a previously unknown virus to Kaspersky Lab, the company releases either an exclusive treatment module or confirmation that the object is harmless within 24 hours.
“We are glad to have signed ComGuard as Value Added Distributor with its wide reach of Channel Partners for the Middle East region, “ says Maxim Shirokov, Kaspersky Lab’s Business Development Manager of Middle East & Africa. “The highly skilled staff of our partner will allow us to penetrate the regional market while assuring the quality of the implementations and with it the satisfaction of our clients.”
Kaspersky Lab’s products enjoy popularity across all industries. Many large international government and commercial organizations such as La Poste (France), Airbus Industries (EU), Central Bank of Russia, Foreign Ministry of Italy, BBC Worldwide (UK), Telecom Italia, France Telecom, Lukoil and Gazprom are using solutions provided by Kaspersky Lab.
