Kaspersky SMB and Enterprise Cyber Security Solutions
Kaspersky Lab, the Moscow-based cybersecurity software maker, is now the only company in Russia that’s offering S. and EC2 based security and endpoint solutions that are fully automated and free of charge to all customers. The companies are currently working with a variety of vendors and have already demonstrated their solutions at security conferences around the world.
As one of the key players in the cybersecurity landscape, which includes the development and implementation of cybersecurity solutions for the general public, both Microsoft and Kaspersky have been providing a wide range of cybersecurity systems for quite some time. In this article, we will try to outline the evolution of Kaspersky Lab’s security offerings to date and give some insight into the most recent developments in the area.
The Kaspersky security solutions have been present in the market since 1998. In 2007, the company decided to take action to strengthen their position in the cybersecurity arena. In order to do that, they bought out the company that developed the original security solution from the Russian firm Trend Micro, and created their own security solution with the help of Kaspersky’s engineers.
Kaspersky created a security solution called K-Force. This security solution has five products: the base software with support for several platforms, the antivirus solution, the malware scanner, the encryption solution, and the web browser. K-Force was available in three versions: the K-Force SP, the K-Force SP+, and the K-Force Plus.
This was the first security product to have a single version, the SP+, which was also the first version to be available for both Windows and Mac.
For quite some time, Kaspersky offered its solutions in both commercial and consumer versions. The company would distribute these security systems in two ways: at one end of the spectrum, they would distribute them via a retail store or through a reseller, and at the other end of the range this type of system was delivered to users who asked for it.
ACA Pacific has become the Singapore distributor of Kaspersky.

The Indonesian government signed a memorandum of understanding with Kaspersky.
Read the full text, including the abstract.
On September 1, 2012, Indonesian military forces deployed electronic surveillance forces, Kaspersky Lab’s GCSK, in three locations in Java. This was a continuation of the government’s ‘Operation Pusan’, which was launched in late 2011 to disrupt the activities of the Islamic militant group Abu Sayyaf. According to the government, Kaspersky’s technology is necessary to prevent the expansion of the Indonesian government’s power.
In late 2010, Kaspersky Lab acquired a license to operate in Indonesia. This followed the collaboration of the US Defense Department and NATO in 2002, which allowed the deployment of US-based technology to NATO members. Since then, Kaspersky’s technology has been deployed in over thirty-four countries in the region, including the US in Iraq and Afghanistan, Italy, the Philippines, the Czech Republic, France, Austria and Australia.
The signing of the memorandum of understanding between the Indonesian government and Kaspersky is the latest in the series of agreements that have been signed in Indonesian government offices around the world.
According to Indonesian Government Spokesman Supaya Indrawati, the memorandum of understanding was signed during an annual meeting of the Indonesian parliament. Deputy Speaker of the House of Representatives Ahmad Jundir said that the agreement is an effort to strengthen coordination between the Indonesian government and private companies.
The deal was first rumored on June 30, 2012, and made public on July 13, 2012, with the signing of the memorandum of understanding. Jundir also said the agreement had received ‘unanimous approval’ from all parties. According to him, the signed terms of agreement would facilitate the use of Kaspersky’s software in Indonesia, and they would create an environment in which the government could rely on such software to prevent terrorist and criminal activity in the country.
In addition to the memorandum of understanding, the Indonesian government issued regulations to govern the deployment of Kaspersky Lab’s GCSK technology.
