Kaspersky Lab to participate in Gitex 2009

Kaspersky Lab, a leading developer of secure content management solutions, announces the release of an updated line of corporate products, Kaspersky Open Space Security Release 2, as the company gears up for participation at Gitex 2009, the Middle East’s leading technology exhibition being held at the Dubai World Trade Center on 18-22 October 2009.

The new line of corporate products includes the latest version of Kaspersky Administration Kit, a centralized management tool, and three applications designed to protect workstations and servers running under Microsoft Windows. The new applications are fully compatible with Microsoft Windows 7 and Windows Servers 2008 R2.

The advanced administration tools and protection technologies implemented in the updated product line significantly increase the security, performance and manageability of all nodes on a computer network. Protecting a modern corporate network requires robust solutions that secure each node on the network, including servers and workstations, and offer convenient centralized management tools. Kaspersky Lab’s corporate products offer exactly this type of protection.

Commenting on Kaspersky Lab’s participation in Gitex 2009, Tarek Kuzbari, managing director, Kaspersky Lab, Middle East, said: “This region is a key market for Kaspersky Lab and we are committed to keeping the discerning Middle East consumers updated with our most recent technologies.

“Gitex 2009 will be a significant opportunity for Kaspersky Lab to showcase its new line of products and reiterates its commitment to the consumers and partners in the region. We are also proud to have our Kaspersky Lab experts on hand to offer an insight into the IT industry,” Kuzbari added.

Kaspersky Lab has also recently launched its new generation of solutions for home users in the Middle East. They are designed to protect against IT threats based on a revolutionary approach that involves global monitoring of malicious activities by the protected system itself, preventing malware from ever affecting the user’s computer. Offering unsurpassed online safety, Kaspersky Internet Security 2010 and Kaspersky Anti-Virus 2010 boast an improved antivirus engine that is even more effective at detecting malicious programs.

As a way of providing customized solutions for Middle East consumers, Kaspersky Lab launched an Arabic version of its corporate website last month. Visitors to the Arabic website will find up-to-date information on IT threats as well as business, product and technology news from Kaspersky Lab. The Arabic version of the Kaspersky Lab website can be found at http://me.kaspersky.com.
