  Russian cybersecurity solutions firm Kaspersky Lab is strengthening its enterprise segment in Malaysia with a new partnership.

Non-endpoint solutions come under the spotlight in the recent deal with Techdata Systems, a local nationwide provider of networking technologies and IT service chain management.

Under the new agreement, Techdata Systems will offer Kaspersky Lab's non-endpoint security solutions as part of its core IT security portfolio.

Sylvia Ng, general manager, Kaspersky Lab - SEA, said the move, which follows a recent signing with Digital Paper, is a natural progression of the company's growth in Malaysia.

"Our success in Malaysia should be attributed to the hard work of our channel partners and in particular of our distributors; those who worked with us and helped to build success all these years," Ng said.

"With their help, now we can enjoy the position of recognised leader in the enterprise segment," she explained. "However, being leader implies continuous search for new opportunities on how to strengthen our leading position and how to increase the number of Kaspersky client portfolios across Malaysia."

The solutions in the portfolio include: Kaspersky Anti Targeted Attack (KATA); Kaspersky Industrial CyberSecurity (KICS); and Kaspersky Security Intelligence Services (KSIS).

As a non-endpoint distributor, Techdata Systems will be responsible for technical support, marketing and sales, offering end-to-end support to partners and clients on behalf of Kaspersky Lab, said Jeff Lim Kheng Tong, sales director for Techdata Systems.
"We are well positioned and prepared to take on the distributorship of Kaspersky Lab's non-endpoint solutions," he said. "Techdata Systems is fundamentally changing the way information is published and consumed in the enterprise, helping customers improve operations, drive growth, and quickly adapt to changes in business demands."
