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.







30 percent of malware attacks are zero day exploits

Thirty percent of malware can be classified as new or zero-day because it cannot be caught by legacy antivirus solutions, according to research published in WatchGuard’s first Quarterly Internet Security Report, which explores the latest computer and network security threats affecting SMBs and distributed enterprises. The results from Q4 2016, confirm that cyber criminals’ capability to automatically repack or morph their malware has outpaced the AV industry’s ability to keep up with new signatures. This means that without advanced threat prevention, companies could be missing up to a third of malware.



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.

It is now available for applications hosted on AWS and will be available for applications hosted on Azure the second quarter of 2017.
