Comztek to be Kaspersky’s distributor in Namibia

ID-10079616Kaspersky believes that cybercriminal activity will see a rise in near future as more broadband was made available throughout Africa. (FreeDigitalPhotos.net)Kaspersky Lab and Comztek have entered into an agreement which will make Comztek the official distributor of all Kaspersky Lab products in Namibia

This follows the announcement made earlier this year that made Comztek the distributor of Kaspersky Lab products to its 2,000 plus African reseller bases.

The managing director for emerging markets at Kaspersky Lab, Vasily Dyagilev, said, “The African continent has enormous growth potential and we believe that this agreement will mark a turning point for Kaspersky in Namibia.

"Comztek aims to leverage its existing partnerships to aid Kaspersky Lab in strengthening the African base.”

Kaspersky Lab said that cybercriminal activity would see a rise in the near future as more broadband was made available throughout the African continent, through the likes of cables such as WACS.

“Globally, Kaspersky Lab identifies an average of approximately 70,000 new malicious threats every day which target both consumers and businesses," Dyagilev added.

"Considering the fact that the African continent is becoming more connected to the Internet, we believe that it is critical to place a focus on IT security in this region.”

Comztek regional manager Davel Botha said, “As a leading African communications distributor, we understand the broader African continent and hold an expertise within the Namibian region, having been in operation in the region for 8 years.

"Bringing expert IT security solutions to this region is meeting a critical need and will certainly aid in ensuring that cybercriminal activity is minimalistic as far as possible.”

Through this partnership agreement, Comztek resellers and partners in Namibia will deliver the full suite of Kaspersky Lab business solutions to the market.

These products include Kaspersky Open Space Security, Kaspersky Lab’s specialised security for virtualised environments and Kaspersky Targeted Security solutions.
