Kaspersky® Anti-Virus Engine integrated into Cyberoam's Unified Threat Management (UTM) solution

Cyberoam, a provider of identity-based security appliances, has teamed up with Kaspersky Lab, a leading developer of secure content management solutions, to fully integrate its antivirus and antispam engines into Cyberoam's Unified Threat Management (UTM) solution.

"Kaspersky Lab has proven expertise in antivirus and antispam solutions with rapid response to the newest threats and the highest virus and spyware detection rates," says Harish Chib, VP-Marketing, Elitecore Technologies, vendor of Cyberoam. "Additionally, our OEM agreement with Kaspersky Lab enabled us to offer antivirus and antispam technologies that match the high levels of granularity of Cyberoam UTM features. This makes these Kaspersky Lab solutions perfect complements to our identity-based UTM."

Kaspersky Lab’s antivirus and antispam products have led the most demanding industry comparison tests due to its high-quality features. Kaspersky Lab is one of the key partners of IMPACT (the world's first international partnership dedicated to combating terrorist activities in the area of information and communication technologies), an active member of AVIEN (an international body which shares information about new viruses) and the recipient of numerous certificates from the world's leading independent research centers such as the West Coast Labs, the International Computer Security Association (ICSA) and many others.

"Technological cooperation with providers of security solutions is one of the key components of Kaspersky Lab’s business strategy. The company offers the most comprehensive and up-to-date technological developments capable of withstanding the whole spectrum of modern electronic threats including viruses, hacker attacks and spam. We are certain that the integration of Kaspersky Lab’s advanced technologies into the Cyberoam UTM solution will substantially increase the level of protection," said Vitaly Bezrodnykh, Business Development Director at Kaspersky Lab.

The Cyberoam solution offers individualized quarantine policy where key executives can access their quarantined mail, user-based restrictions on file transfer and reporting, delivering best-of-breed antivirus capability. Cyberoam antispam features include individualized spam policies as well as enhanced reporting and flexibility. "By integrating with the Kaspersky® Anti-Virus engine, the Cyberoam solution will be able to offer antivirus protection over five critical protocols like HTTP, SMTP, POP, IMAP and FTP, effectively containing threat entry," adds Chib. "Secondly, the features like spam categorization, multi-tier spam filtration and easy administration are added advantages."

Cyberoam provides security to more than 1000 corporations, educational institutes and government organizations worldwide.
