The Kingdom stands to benefit from a new security system designed to protect data from hackers. Kapersky Lab’s new corporate security platform, Endpoint Security for Business, was revealed at a local hotel on Monday.
“This is the first time that a security product of this kind has been made available in Saudi Arabia. It features four components which are separate from each other. Under our new system, these could be managed by only one IT manager,” Khalid Abu Baker, corporate sales manager for Kapersky, told a press conference.
The new product gives the Kingdom a cutting edge in the corporate security market, he said, adding that it features encryption, anti-malware, mobile device management and vulnerability management.
The company’s new flagship corporate security platform for business offers a powerful combination of protection, efficiency and seamless manageability, he said.
“To simplify IT security management and ensure advanced protection for business of all sizes, Kaspersky Endpoint Security for Business comes with a number of new and improved technologies that allow administrators to see, control, and protect their network,” he added.
He said that the product is available for purchase in specialized bundles for businesses of all sizes, adding that it is a single, unified platform and delivers protection in a way that other security products cannot.
He told that “the four other leading companies have their own security systems but not the same as what Kaspersky has.”
He also said that with the new security system, his company aims to be number one in the market by 2015. The company has been named a “Leader” in the Gartner Magic Quadrant for Endpoint Protection Platforms and listed as 2012 Top Player in the Market Quadrant for Endpoint Security Platforms.
