Kaspersky Lab Reveals Strategic Plans

New virtualization and fraud prevention solutions continue to strengthen Kaspersky Lab’s enterprise security portfolio.

Kaspersky Lab recently revealed its vision of enterprise security at the company’s annual CyberSecurity Summit in San Francisco, U.S.A. The event focused on how enterprise IT security realities affected businesses worldwide and featured commentary and panel discussions from influential figures in IT security. At the event, Kaspersky Lab also announced several new security solutions that are now available, as well as planned solutions and business strategies that will guide the company’s growth throughout the year.

A key theme discussed at the event included recent and significant changes to the IT security landscape: sophisticated attacks and complex cyber-espionage campaigns targeting corporations are “the new normal.” Another area of focus was how the IT industry also faces a rising tide of advanced threats specifically targeting financial service networks, a segment which requires specialized security solutions to meet their unique needs.

To lead the discussion of these core issues, Kaspersky Lab assembled leading experts in IT security from the corporate, government, financial systems, and IT management fields, including representatives of Facebook, Visa, The Boeing Company and Wells Fargo & Co.
Tom Ridge, Former Secretary of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, delivered a keynote speech: “How Cyberwarfare Impacts Enterprise IT Security.”

Eugene Kaspersky, chairman and CEO of Kaspersky Lab, said: “These days cybercrime is no longer about stealing relatively small sums of money from ordinary users. As the IT security landscape evolves rapidly and gets more and more complex, the number of sophisticated cyber-espionage campaigns targeting giant corporations is also sharply rising. Criminals are increasingly elaborate in designing their attacks and always try to exploit the weakest link in terms of security, which means that supply chains and contractors are targeted as well. This means that today threat intelligence is one of the top priorities for CIOs and CSOs, who need to ensure their defenses are flexible enough to withstand not just contemporary threats, but also the coming generation of cyber dangers.”
