At CeBIT 2010, Kaspersky Lab will be providing a complete overview of its security software products and educating visitors about current IT security threats. Products being showcased on stand D37, Security Hall 11, will include a new comprehensive security solution for families, the award-winning Kaspersky® Open Space Security™ business suite and Kaspersky Mobile Security 9. CeBIT 2010 will be taking place in Hannover, Germany from 2nd to 6th March 2010.

"This year, we are focusing on keeping the digital environment clean, both for the home user and business environment," explains Axel Diekmann, Managing Director, Kaspersky Lab Central Europe. "The amount of unsolicited email alone accounts for around 90 percent of the total volume sent, and this digital pollution brings with it an abundance of malicious software. Nowadays it is also possible nowadays to catch a Trojan simply by surfing the web. This can then spy out passwords and bank details, or turn your PC into part of what's known as a botnet."
