Software security vendor, Kaspersky Lab, has announced that it has deployed its security offerings to the Department of the Prime Minister and Cabinet across Australia.

Kaspersky Lab said, in a statement, that the move reflects the "strong confidence" placed in its security solutions, products, and services by a broad cross section of the Australian market.

Since opening its offices in Australia six years ago, Kaspersky Lab has been aiming to directly engage with the local information security and business communities across Australia.

A part of its local strategy has been geared towards collaborating with government agencies and delivering to Australia its global cyber threat intelligence services, including the provision of policy and technological proposals that deal with cyber threats in Australia.

Kaspersky Lab A/NZ managing director, Andrew Mamonitis, said the company remains at the forefront of the IT security space.

He also claimed that its extensive role working with international agencies, both globally and across the region, means it is able to effectively respond to the impact of the global cybersecurity landscape on Australia.

"Kaspersky Lab is proud to be protecting the department of the prime minister and cabinet, including its almost 2500 employees across Australia. It is testament to the strong confidence key players on a national level have in our robust portfolio of security offerings," Mamonitis added.
