Kaspersky Lab, a leading developer of secure content management solutions, announces that it has reached an agreement for a technical partnership with Scuderia Ferrari Marlboro.

“It is a great honour for us to commence a partnership with the team, world famous for its race history and huge success,” Eugene Kaspersky CEO and co-founder of Kaspersky Lab commented. “Ferrari and Kaspersky Lab share many values, such as the constant research for excellence, technological innovation and love for competition in our respective businesses”.

Although the agreement with the Scuderia has been extended to the 2010 and 2011 seasons, the ties between the two companies go further.
