Kaspersky Labs, a leading information security software developer, announces the extension of its Checkmark certification for Kaspersky® Anti-Virus. Checkmark certification attests to the fact that software and hardware security systems meet stringent quality standards. The independent test laboratory of West Coast Labs
, a British scientific research centre, determines criteria and carries out testing.
West Coast Labs currently tests anti-virus programs on three levels: Level 1, Level 2 and Trojan Checkmark.
Kaspersky Anti-Virus has once again successfully passed all three stages, and received extended certification.
The status of Microsoft Gold Certified Partner for Security Solutions is reserved for Microsoft Certified Partners who have demonstrated significant success in providing information security solutions based on Microsoft technologies. The Gold Partner status opens up a wide spectrum of new opportunities. The extended benefits include elite brand identification, prioritized access to advanced training opportunities, increased software licenses and MSDN access, prioritized listing on referrals and business engagements, an exclusive Web site, and differentiated marketing materials.
Checkmark certification is the de facto standard the world over and it represents a defining factor in determining the value of an anti-virus product. Checkmark certification confirms that a product passed all the required tests and demonstrated 100% effectiveness in counteracting malicious programs.
Kaspersky Labs successfully maintains its prestigious Checkmark certification awarded by West Coast Labs, an independent scientific research center.
