Business News

Kaspersky Lab today announced its software products, which protect homes and small offices from Cybercrime, is now available at Makro’s 30 purpose built Cash and Carry stores throughout the UK. Furthermore, Makro is running an exclusive in-store promotion that offers the 3-user license of its award-winning software at a special price, when purchased with a laptop.

Kaspersky Internet Security 2009 and Kaspersky Anti-Virus 2009 are designed to protect home and small office users from millions of existing threats and more than 17,000 new Cybercrime attacks that are detected each day. Today, these malicious attacks are less concerned with compromising the performance of unprotected PCs and laptops, but are created with the goal of making money from unsuspecting victims.

Phil Clueit, Section Buyer Non-Food, at Makro comments: “Makro is the destination store to purchase business essentials. With today’s threat from Cybercrime, comprehensive IT security should be on the shopping list of every small business. It is therefore highly important that we stock the very best products on our shelves and we are delighted to offer Kaspersky Lab technology to our customers.”

Malcolm Tuck, Managing Director of Kaspersky Lab UK, adds: “Makro is the ideal retailer to reach out to the smaller trade and business customers who require IT security, but have traditionally either had to choose between technology developed predominantly for the home user market, and the more expensive security suites relied upon by larger enterprises.” He adds: “Through Makro’s 33 stores we are providing small businesses with the protection and peace of mind they need, at a cost they can afford. If they are purchasing with a new laptop it represents even greater value for money.”

From July 2009, Makro will be stocking the new versions of the software - Kaspersky Internet Security 2010 and Kaspersky Anti-Virus 2010.
