“We are delighted to have been short-listed for three awards in this year’s prestigious SC Magazine Awards,“ commented Malcolm Tuck, Managing Director of Kaspersky UK. “The nominations recognise Kasperskyâ Open Space Security™ which not only protects workplace systems, but also extends beyond the workplace to reach remote users and an increasingly mobile workforce – something which is becoming one of the most vital areas of business IT and we believe will continue to grow.”

Kaspersky® Open Space Security™ is a customisable security suite specifically designed to protect enterprise information systems from existing and potential cyber threats. Combining anti-virus, anti-spam, anti-spyware and protection against phishing and rootkits in one integrated package, the solution combines the use of traditional signature-based antivirus technology with the ability to monitor system processes to look for malicious programs. The software provides separate policies for mobile devices, which take effect when a device is disconnected from the corporate network. Developed to run in a multi-platform environment, the solution’s scalable components ensure increased productivity. The award-winning centralised management console enables centralised installation, configuration, monitoring and management to help enforce enterprise security policy. A versatile licensing scheme, support for cluster technology and an extended set of applications ensure effective and customisable threat protection.

Kaspersky Lab had a successful year in 2008. Along with Kasperskyâ Open Space Security™, Kaspersky® Hosted Security Services™ has been extended to include Web and IM Security - combating malware and spam by filtering these out in the cloud, thereby preventing malicious content from ever reaching a network. The new Kaspersky Mobile Security Enterprise Edition offers a powerful and reliable solution for protecting corporate mobile users from malicious programs, SMS spam and Internet attacks and provides protection for confidential data stored on a smartphone should it be lost or stolen. Kaspersky Lab also launched Kasperskyâ Small Office Security, which offers a cost-effective solution for the SME market that is easy to install and manage.

The SC magazine Awards Europe 2009 will take place at the Hurlingham Club, Ranelagh Gardens, SW6 on Tuesday 28 April 2009.
