Kaspersky has announced is delivering its security offerings to protect devices used by the department’s staff across Australia.
The PM&C has around 2,500 employees a cross the country.
Kaspersky says the announcement reflects the “strong confidence” placed in its security solutions, products, and services by a broad cross section of the Australian market.
“It is testament to the strong confidence key players on a national level have in our robust portfolio of security offerings.”
Mamonitis said that since opening its offices in Australia 6 years ago, Kaspersky has been directly engaging with the local information security and business communities across Australia.
As an example of that engagement, Mamonitis cites Kaspersky’s Chairman and CEO, Eugene Kaspersky, visiting Australia earlier this month for the AusCERT information security conference, as well as for industry and business events across the country. Eugene Kaspersky spoke at a lunch in Sydney attended by iTWire when he was in Australia – to read Ray Shaw’s report on Kaspersky's luncheon address click here.

“We are and remain at the forefront of the IT security space. Our extensive role in working with international agencies both globally and across our region means we are able to effectively respond to the impact of the global cybersecurity landscape on Australia.
