Kaspersky Lab, a leading developer of Internet threat management solutions that protect against all forms of malicious software including viruses, spyware, hackers and spam, today announced that all 21 Costco cash-and-carry membership warehouse clubs across the UK will be stocking the three-desktop, one-year license of the award-winning Kaspersky® Internet Security 2010.

Costco operates the chain of cash & carry membership warehouses that sell high-quality, nationally branded and selected private-label merchandise at low prices to businesses purchasing for commercial use or resale, and also to individuals who are members of selected employment groups.

Buyer at Costco, Alison Owen explains why it is important for all of its stores to stock the very latest security software: "The self employed, small businesses and family homes of today will often have two or three Internet-enabled PCs or laptops that connect to a wireless network. Without up-to-date protection each of these devices are at risk from the threat of cybercrime. By stocking the three-desktop version of Kaspersky® Internet Security we are able to provide our customers, their families and businesses with the comprehensive protection and reassurance they need to stay safe from the threat of cybercrime."

Launched in July 2009, Kaspersky® Internet Security 2010 is an all-in-one security software suite that uses the very latest personal firewall, antivirus and anti-spam filter technology to deliver the most comprehensive protection from cybercrime. New features include a URL Advisor that provides a visible indicator (colour coding) if a web site is safe, dangerous or suspicious and a Kaspersky Safe Run mode, which enables websites and new software to be run in an isolated environment.

Consumer Sales Director at Kaspersky Lab, Simon Geach comments: "We are continuing to increase the size of our considerable footprint in the UK market and we are delighted to have our products on the shelves of all 21 of Costco's warehouses throughout the UK. As suppliers to both small business and consumers, our 3-desktop version of Kaspersky® Internet Security 2010 is the ideal security software product for Costco to offer its members, to ensure all of their devices are fully protected."
