15 Apr 2008
Press Releases

Kaspersky Open Space Security, Kaspersky Hosted Security Services and Kaspersky® Anti-Virus Mobile Enterprise Edition to be Showcased on Stand G130; 22nd – 24th April 2008 at Grand Hall Olympia, London

Kaspersky Lab, a leading developer of secure content management solutions, announces its full programme of activity for Infosecurity Europe 2008.

Co-Founder and CEO of Kaspersky Lab, Eugene Kaspersky, will host a Cybercrime Forum, as well as present a seminar addressing next generation endpoint protection. Meanwhile, on stand G130, the Kaspersky Lab team will showcase its approach to today’s trans-perimeter working, extending protection beyond the traditional workplace to incorporate remote users, regardless of where they work and how they access the corporate network. Designed to secure even the most challenging and dynamic network structures, Kaspersky Lab products and services include advanced scalability and support for all types of endpoints and platforms. Enabling interoperability and mobility, Kaspersky Lab solutions exceed core requirements for comprehensive protection, in turn providing confidence and peace of mind.

In addition to Kaspersky Hosted Security Services, launched in the UK earlier this year, visitors will be able to view the Kaspersky Open Space Security suite (featuring the new Kaspersky Anti-Virus 6.0 for Windows Server Enterprise Edition and Kaspersky® Security for Microsoft Exchange Server 2007 components). It will also demonstrate how to protect against the increasing risk of malicious code penetrating the network via mobile devices including smartphones and PDAs, using the Kaspersky® Anti-Virus Mobile Enterprise Edition, fully integrated with its award-winning Kaspersky® Administration Kit management console.

On Wednesday 23rd April, between 10.00am and 10.25am, Eugene Kaspersky will deliver a talk titled, ‘Upping the Anti-: Emerging methodologies for endpoint protection’, where he will discuss developments in anti-malware technologies, as well as provide a vision of what he believes the future may hold. Later on Wednesday in the London Room, 13.45 to 16.45, Mr Kaspersky will host an informative and interactive forum on cybercrime, providing an in-depth view of the issues and challenges businesses face today and the steps to take to protect systems and workforce.

Attendees can pre-register for the forum by visiting: http://www.kaspersky.co.uk/cybercrimeforum and the first 40 people to attend the Kaspersky Lab Cybercrime Forum will each receive a free copy of Kaspersky Internet Security 7.0 for three users, free for one year.

“Until a few years ago, viruses and other malicious programs tended to be isolated acts of computer vandalism; anti-social self-expression using hi-tech means,” comments Senior Technology Consultant at Kaspersky Lab, David Emm, who will join Eugene Kaspersky in the Cybercrime Forum. “Today we are faced with ‘crimeware’, malicious code created for the purpose of making money illegally, resulting in targeted, written ‘to order’ threats. In the future, crimeware authors are likely to target the growing numbers of wireless devices increasingly used by enterprises.”

Kaspersky Open Space Security has been nominated in the ‘Best Security Management’ and ‘Security Product of the Year’ categories for SC Magazine Awards Europe 2008. The winners will be announced on 22nd April at the SC Magazine Awards Europe taking place at the Hurlingham Club in West London.
