Kaspersky Lab extends partnership with D-Link
Company will combine D-Link’s NetDefend firewalls with Kaspersky endpoint security suite
Kaspersky Lab has extended its partnership agreement with D-Link, combining D-Link's NetDefend series of UTM Firewalls with Kaspersky's endpoint security suite to provide customers with multi-layered protection.
"I am very pleased with our expanding partnership with D-Link, which will provide customers with the best possible endpoint protection to complement its world-class gateway-based security solutions," said Stephane Le Hir, vice-president of Business Development at Kaspersky Lab.
From July 2012, D-Link's NetDefend UTM Firewall customers will receive free licenses for Kaspersky Business Space Security as well as an option to buy additional licenses at a special D-Link programme rate. The combination of these two compelling products will enable D-Link and Kaspersky Lab customers to deploy a multi-layered defense strategy designed to fight today's evolving security threats.
D-Link's UTM Firewalls have been relying on Kaspersky Lab's signature analysis for several years to power the anti-malware solution on their gateway products to secure the entry point to corporate networks.
The addition of Kaspersky Business Space Security is designed to enhance the level of protection even further by providing multiple layers of defence. This adds another level of protection to networks where D-Link NetDefend UTM Firewall is deployed. The first level of protection is the NetDefend UTM Firewall gateway itself, whichis designed to intercept and weed out the most prevalent and dangerous malware, spyware, or hacking attempts.
The Kaspersky Business Space Security is designed to establish a second perimeter of defence for critical network assets such as file servers, user workstations, and mobile devices, neutralising any malware that eludes the gateway or bypasses it altogether.
"We are pleased to further strengthen our cooperation with Kaspersky. We've put a lot of effort into developing best-in-class solutions for SMBs, and this segment is one of our highest priorities. Having Kaspersky Lab's solutions in D-Link security devices will help us not only to expand our distribution channels, but also to strengthen our global presence and brand equity," said Richard Chen, SMB Director of D-Link.
