Kaspersky Lab recognized in the U.S. by resellers and security solution providers

Woburn, Mass., USA - Kaspersky Lab, a leading developer of secure content management solutions, announced today that the North American operation was again bestowed with honors for its unique and innovative value-added reseller program at the recent IT ChannelVision, a business-focused channel event produced by Vision Events. Kaspersky Lab received awards for “Best VAR Channel Strategy” and “Best VAR Solution: Software” and was a nominee for the “Best Enterprise Solution” award. These honors are particularly prestigious given that the Best of IT ChannelVision awards are the only accolades in the channel solely voted on by the attending resellers and solution providers.

“The continued recognition at various IT ChannelVision events, culminating recently with awards for both ‘Best VAR Channel Strategy’ and ‘Best VAR Software Solution’ and a nominee nod for ‘Best Enterprise Solution,’ showcases our position as the leading channel partner for antivirus and anti-spyware offerings,” said Steve Orenberg, President, Kaspersky Lab, Inc., North American operations. “Kaspersky Lab’s approach to the channel – premium products at very competitive prices, delivered with the highest possible margins for our partners – makes for a winning combination.”

Heralded for the accuracy and frequency of its antivirus updates with Kaspersky Lab’s exclusive automated hourly antivirus updates, Kaspersky Lab’s Virus Lab outpaces any of the leading virus detection centers with the industry’s highest detection rates and its unmatched rapid response time to virus outbreaks. With Kaspersky Lab’s full line of award-winning products that protect against viruses, spyware, phishing, spam and hackers attacks, VARs can deliver quality malware security for their customers’ most complex networks, from firewalls and gateways to mail servers, file servers, workstations and mobile devices.

“IT ChannelVision attendees are senior decision-makers who directly influence their customers’ technology buying decisions,” said Eric Lesonsky, Senior Program Director for IT ChannelVision. “For vendor winners and nominees, the ‘Best of IT ChannelVision Award’ recognizes innovation in the North American IT marketplace.”
