Kaspersky Lab says the announcement reflects the strong confidence placed in its security solutions, products, and services by a broad cross section of the Australian market.
“Kaspersky Lab is proud to be protecting the Department of the Prime Minister & Cabinet, including its almost 2,500 employees across Australia,” Kaspersky Lab’s Australia & NZ managing director, Andrew Mamonitis, said.
“It is testament to the strong confidence key players on a national level have in our robust portfolio of security offerings.”
Since opening its offices in Australia 6 years ago, Kaspersky Lab has been directly engaging with the local information security and business communities across Australia.
Kaspersky Lab’s Chairman and CEO, Eugene Kaspersky, was in Australia earlier this month for the AusCERT information security conference, as well as for industry and business events across the country.
Kaspersky Lab’s Australia strategy has been geared towards a collaboration with government agencies and delivering to Australia its global cyberthreat intelligence services, including the provision of policy and technological proposals to deal with the cyberthreats to Australia.
“We are and remain at the forefront of the IT security space. Our extensive role in working with international agencies both globally and across our region means we are able to effectively respond to the impact of the global cybersecurity landscape on Australia,” Mamonitis added.
Kaspersky Lab’s local strategy culminated in the latest announcement of securing the Department of the Prime Minister & Cabinet across Australia.
