Kaspersky extends sponsorship of Scuderia Ferrari
Security vendor has also developed Kaspersky Motorsport with the help of Ferrari
Kaspersky Lab has announced the continuation of its sponsorship contract with the Scuderia Ferrari Formula One racing team. The new five-year contract will be valid from 2017 until 2021.
Eugene Kaspersky, chairman and CEO of Kaspersky Lab, said: “This is a big and important day for us and I’m thrilled that we’re prolonging our partnership with Scuderia Ferrari. Though we work in different industries, we share common values and are both committed to being the best at what we do. I’m looking forward to more excitement and new triumphs!”
The partnership between the two companies, which began in 2010 has continued to expand year on year. Along with sponsoring the Scuderia Ferrari Formula One team, Kaspersky Lab has developed Kaspersky Motorsport with the help of Ferrari. Kaspersky Motorsport encompasses all of Kaspersky Lab’s activities in the field: from entering motorsport championships and supporting talented young drivers to implementing its vision of car security.
Since 2013, the partnership has deepened with Ferrari choosing Kaspersky Lab to provide it with a complete range of IT security measures. This technical cooperation marks a new milestone in the relationship between the two companies. From its iconic Maranello factory complex, all the way to the chequered flag, Ferrari’s IT systems are protected by bespoke Kaspersky Lab security solutions.
Commenting on the sponsorship renewal, Alexander Moiseev, managing director, Europe, Kaspersky Lab and Founder of Kaspersky Motorsport, says: “It is easy to see that even though we operate in different industries, we have much in common with Scuderia Ferrari. Both companies prioritize technological leadership, innovation and are passionate about their work. At Kaspersky Lab we are very proud to have an inspirational partner that never stops advancing.”
