Kaspersky solutions to be deployed at BASF
Global chemical company operates in over 80 countries
Kaspersky Lab will be providing security solutions to BASF, a global chemical company that operates in over 80 countries.
Kaspersky Lab's security software will provide protection for endpoints connected to the company's business network. A total of 100,000 BASF endpoints will be protected by Kaspersky Work Space Security.
"We are very proud to have BASF as our new global client", said Eugene Kaspersky, CEO and co-founder of Kaspersky Lab. "As with any other major international corporation, BASF require constant and reliable protection for their corporate IT infrastructure and we're very glad that they have chosen Kaspersky Lab as their global partner in this business-critical area".
Kaspersky will deploy its Work Space Security to provide comprehensive protection against threats for BASF's endpoints, malware, phishing and hacking attacks. The security software will also provide a firewall, secure email forwarding and control over the usage of peripherals such as USB flash drives and external storage and I/O devices. BASF and Kaspersky have also signed Individual Maintenance Service Agreements (MSAs) designed to ensure that BASF employees receive the global support.
"Ensuring worldwide standardised and scalable asset protection and reporting is one of the IT security fundamentals in our organisation. We rely on Kaspersky Lab to assist us with this and are delighted with the scanning performance and flexible, central management capabilities provided by the Kaspersky Administration Kit," said Oliver Jaeckel-Bender, senior Specialist for IT Security within Information Services BASF Group.
