M86 Security, the global expert in real-time web and email threat protection, today announced the expansion of their partnership with Kaspersky Lab. The extension of this relationship allows M86 to offer Kaspersky Lab's antivirus scanning capabilities to users of M86 MailMarshal SMTP, M86 MailMarshal Exchange and M86 WebMarshal products.
"Our continued collaboration with M86 is extremely valuable as we extend Kaspersky Lab's cutting-edge antivirus scanning technology already available for the M86 Secure Web Gateway appliance to the company's entire range of security solutions", said Peter Merkulov, Vice-President of the Technology Alliances Business Division for Kaspersky Lab. "This effort now provides M86 users with another advanced and reliable tool for quickly eliminating viruses, worms, rootkits, spyware and other malicious software."
Kaspersky Lab has provided its antivirus scanning capabilities for the M86 Secure Web Gateway since 2006. "This initiative with Kaspersky Lab is part of our ongoing commitment to develop partnerships or seek ways to deliver more complete solutions to our customers," said Werner Thalmeier, Vice-President of Product Management at M86 Security. "The addition of this module to M86's arsenal of antivirus scanning products allows us to provide a wider range of choices to M86 customers interested in our email and Web security solutions."
