Cebit 2011

Kaspersky Lab, a leading developer of secure content and threat management solutions, has chosen Europe's largest IT exhibition, CeBIT, as a platform to demonstrate that the company is "Always ahead with winning performance and technology". From 1 to 5 March, 2011, the company's IT security experts will be at the trade show bringing people up to date on the latest IT threats and informing them about Kaspersky Lab's newest solutions. In addition, Kaspersky Lab's stand [D37, Hall 11] will play host to a genuine Ferrari Formula 1 racing car - proving that motor racing and IT security really do go hand-in-hand. Visitors will also have the opportunity to test their driving abilities in an F1 simulator.

This year's main focus will be on small companies with 10 or less employees. Statistics show that last year, 41%* of freelance workers' and small business owners' computers were infected with malware. This figure shows how important it is to make businesses aware of the risks they face. After all, it is not just about data loss; a company's very existence can easily be put at stake. That`s why Kaspersky Lab have created Kaspersky Small Office Security 2, a solution designed especially with small businesses in mind and which will be showcased at CeBIT.

However, the risks to mobile technology and the security of social networks are also on the agenda. In addition to Kaspersky Small Office Security 2, the latest version of Kaspersky Mobile Security 9, which now supports the BlackBerry and Android platforms, will be unveiled too.
