Global cybersecurity solutions provider Kaspersky and Centerm, a worldwide leader in thin client solutions, hardware, and management software, recently signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to cooperate in the creation of cyber immune endpoints. The solution, which reflects their shared goal, is based on the KasperskyOS operating system and Centerm hardware platforms. The MoU was signed at GITEX GLOBAL 2022 taking place in the Dubai World Trade Centre.
Under the MoU, both companies will determine markets’ needs in cyber immune endpoints and find ways to fulfill them in the global market landscape. Kaspersky and Centerm will also take the opportunity to demonstrate their collaborative success to representatives of enterprises, governments, and the academic community in order to raise awareness and establish the demand for cyber immune solutions.
As a part of the cooperation, Kaspersky will provide KasperskyOS operating system and relative cyber immune products and solutions, while Centerm will provide hardware platforms (thin clients, tablets, other hardware end-user platforms) to corporate customers. Both parties will now have an opportunity to participate in each other's marketing activities as strategic partners.
“Over the past few years, we've seen an increased need for remote workplaces around the world – accompanied by a growing market for protective solutions to ensure that they operate securely. We develop these kinds of products and solutions based on the KasperskyOS operating system. One such solution is Kaspersky Secure Remote Workspace, which includes Kaspersky Thin Client – the world's first thin client with cyber immunity that requires no additional antivirus protection tools. We believe this product has great export potential, and our partnership with Centerm reinforces this belief. I hope that through this partnership we’ll be implementing successful projects to protect user devices, and together we’ll take another step closer to a Cyber Immune future,” says Eugene Kaspersky, Kaspersky CEO.
“Together Kaspersky and Centerm are strengthening our partnership and making it easier for customers to have the most complete, reliable, and secure solutions for today’s demanding computing requirements. Centerm sees this as a major step toward delivering cybersecurity solution tailored to the needs of our customers,” adds Zheng Xu, Centerm Overseas Sales director.
The agreement between the two companies is signed for three years, with an opportunity to extend it further after that period. More information about Kaspersky’s cyber immune approach can be found here.
