Kaspersky Lab, one of the world’s leading developers of secure content management solutions, has signed a partnership with Netintelligence, an internet security company. The agreement will enable Netintelligence to offer its business and home customers Kaspersky Lab’s anti-virus and firewall protection to combat the growing threat of web and email-borne viruses. Under the terms of partnership, Netintelligence will incorporate Kaspersky Lab’s products into its Netintelligence Internet Security and Netintelligence Parental Control solutions.
Netintelligence specialises in providing a comprehensive internet security service, protecting home users against viruses and spyware, web filtering and blocking, instant messenger and P2P control. The company also protects SMEs across several sectors, including education and local authorities. Its wide range of customers include Manchester City Council, Bett Homes, The Royal Mint, and CRISIS, among others.
Phil Worms, Product and Marketing Director at Netintelligence, explains the decision to partner with Kaspersky Lab: “Virus and firewall protection is extremely important for our customers and it was vital that our internet security solution protected them from current and new threats. Our main criterion was that the product set had to provide the most robust protection available against threats, and after looking at several products, we felt that the Kaspersky Lab offerings were the best available in the market.”
“We also wanted to partner with a company whose security solutions could easily integrate into our service and whose updates could be pushed out to customers through our own web-based security platform. Kaspersky Lab’s products are easily incorporated within our own product which means there aren’t any additional layers of administration for either ourselves or more importantly our customers.”
Vanessa Mitchell, OEM Manager, Kaspersky Lab UK, comments: “Our mutual knowledge of the home and SME markets makes the partnership a natural fit. We look forward to protecting Netintelligence’s customers from the latest malware threats and hacker attacks via our hourly anti-virus and anti-spyware updates.”
