Kaspersky Lab introduces Partner Programme

Kaspersky Lab has launched a new partner programme aimed at managed service providers (MSPs) that already offer security services or would like to add them to their current portfolio. The programme helps MSPs to address the growing demand for IT security services and enables them to attract new customers in the SMB markets, while satisfying existing customers looking to outsource all IT functions, including security, to a trusted third-party.


Industrial computers under attack

On average two-in-five computers, related to the technological infrastructure of industrial enterprises, faced cyberattacks in the second half of 2016. This is a finding from Kaspersky Lab’s report “Threat Landscape for Industrial Automation Systems. The second half of 2016.” The percentage of industrial computers under attack grew from over 17 per cent in July 2016 to more than 24 per cent in December 2016, with the top three sources of infection being the Internet, removable storage devices, and malicious e-mail attachments and scripts embedded in the body of e-mails.












Hackers only need 24 hours

More than three-quarters (88%) of hackers can break through cybersecurity defences and into the systems they target within 12 hours, while 81% say they can identify and take valuable data within another 12 hours, even though the breach may not be discovered for hundreds of days, according to research by global technology company Nuix.
