TSB Sugar RSA feeling sweet

February 2014 Cyber Security

Kaspersky Lab has signed a three-year deal with TSB Sugar RSA – one of the largest South African sugar producers. With the assistance from Pronto Solutions Distributor, 1200 endpoints will now be protected by Kaspersky Endpoint Security for Business, with additional e-mail security solutions.

When TSB Sugar RSA’s current security licence came to an end, the company decided to re-evaluate the security market and the enterprise endpoint security segment, specifically.

By request from TSB, a special training session on Kaspersky Lab’s products was conducted, to ensure that TSB representatives gained an inside look at Kaspersky Lab’s solutions features, before committing to purchase.

“The feature list of the Kaspersky Endpoint Security for Business Advanced solution was impressive when compared to competitors, as well as being well suited for our requirements. However, the most striking aspect about Kaspersky Lab’s software, was that it detected over 400 functioning malware programs on computers supposedly being protected by the antivirus we had used in the past. With Kaspersky Lab, I feel much safer now,” said Les Greenwood, IT technology manager at TSB Sugar RSA.

Kaspersky Endpoint Security for Business provides comprehensive protection against all types of threats for TSB’s endpoints. While protecting against malware and hacking attacks, the security software also features a set of additional useful instruments, such as disk encryption as well as tools for mobile device management which ensures that the company can embrace the Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) policy and receive all the benefits of employees staying in touch with their work, given the current proliferation of smartphones and tablets. Even with all these capabilities it’s still easy to manage the software from a single console.

“At Kaspersky Lab we understand that large companies are exposed to a wide range of security threats today, and so we ensure we provide them with solutions that effectively integrate the most effective technologies needed to secure our customers and their system endpoints. The positive feedback received from TSB Sugar RSA, who have had the experience of working with different security products, and then, who choose our software, proves we have succeeded at it,” commented Riaan Badenhorst, MD at Kaspersky Lab South Africa.
