Kaspersky Lab, a leading developer of secure content management solutions, and ColdSpark, a BakBone Software company, and leader in next-generation enterprise messaging infrastructure, announced that they have entered into an OEM agreement. ColdSpark will leverage the Kaspersky Anti-Virus Engine to provide end-to-end anti-virus protection for enterprises’ messaging infrastructures.

In recent years, spyware, adware, rootkits and other hostile programs have grown at an alarming pace. Protection from these threats is essential given that they pose significant security and legal risks. Currently, in addition to award-winning detection of viruses, Trojans and worms, the Kaspersky Anti-Virus Engine provides superior protection from spyware, adware and other potentially hostile programs. Additionally, the Kaspersky Anti-Virus Engine provides advanced protection from all types of mobile malware, all through a single scanning engine.

ColdSpark’s flagship product, the SparkEngine Mail Transport Platform, enables customers to enhance the power of their email to drive revenue, build customer relationships and improve business efficiency while ensuring security, compliance and performance.

“Extending Kaspersky Lab’s anti-virus technology to our customers will provide large enterprises with automated anti-virus protection to close any potential windows of vulnerability,” said Scott Brown, senior vice president and general manager, ColdSpark. “We feel that the Kaspersky Anti-Virus Engine is a strong fit with our SparkEngine technology based on its high level of protection, performance, manageability and simplicity.”

“Viruses and worms can penetrate hundreds of thousands of computers in just a few hours, making response time to new threats crucial for effective protection from malware. Kaspersky Lab’s reliance on proactive technologies is supported by industry-leading, signature-based protection that yields accurate and timely detection of malware,” said Petr Merkulov, vice president, Technology Alliances, at Kaspersky Lab. “We are excited to be working with ColdSpark to deliver integrated anti-virus protection for secure e-mail communication.”
