Kaspersky Lab signs deal with Irish Value-add DistributorCulham Innovation Centre, UK (5th June 2003) Kaspersky Lab announced today that it has signed an agreement with Chameleon Technology that will see Kaspersky's products distributed throughout Northern Ireland and EIRE. This latest signing strengthens Kaspersky Lab' position within Europe and recognises Chameleon for the high level of support it provides to its partners. Based in Dublin, Chameleon is a trade only distributor that specialises in providing security solutions to its partners, assisting them in securing and implementing new business. Though Chameleon will be selling Kaspersky Lab' entire product range, it is envisaged that Kaspersky® Anti-Virus Business Optimal and Kaspersky® Anti-Spam will be the main focus. Kieron Hyland, Chameleon's Sales Director comments, 'Kaspersky Lab' product range complements our own security offerings and allows us to offer our partners the very latest technology in combating viruses, hackers and spam, which has become a major headache for many organisations. We looked at other vendors, but Kaspersky's consistent high position in the Top Three anti-virus solutions, along with the fact that they offer daily updates, 24-hour support, and comprehensive product range, made choosing Kaspersky Lab as our Security Partner easy.' Kaspersky Anti-Spam is a highly intelligent product that protects organisations against spam through the simultaneous use of "black lists", message sample comparisons and powerful heuristic analysis of incoming messages. Kaspersky Anti-Virus Business Optimal provides SMEs with a configurable anti-virus solution that will protect the entire network including workstations, servers and email gateways. 'We chose Chameleon because they offer an outstanding level of support to their resellers, which reflects our own company ethos, says Sveta Ivanova, Managing Director of Kaspersky Lab UK. 'Many resellers are missing out on the opportunities of new business simply because they don't have the resources to manage and maintain a team of security experts. Chameleon provides its resellers with a high level of support, helping them to develop their business and increase margins.' ### About Chameleon Technology Chameleon Technology is a trade-only distributor of Internet & Network Security solutions, Encryption, Content Management and Filtering, Anti-Virus and Connectivity Solutions.
