Tarsus Distribution has been appointed as a new distributor for Kaspersky’s business-to-business and business-to-consumer product offerings in Southern Africa. 

According to Kaspersky, the agreement forms part of its growth pipeline for the local market.

Riaan Badenhorst, GM for Kaspersky in Africa says: “We live in a world where technology connects us across platforms and borders like never before, opening up new possibilities for everyone. However, this digital reality also brings with it the risk of cyber crime, and our product line is expanding to accommodate the digitally transforming world.”

He says Tarsus can connect Kaspersky’s offerings to the right channel resellers and grow businesses across the region as it has a presence in Namibia, Botswana, Zambia and Mozambique.

Kaspersky research shows that in the Middle East, Africa and Turkey (META) region, more than 150 million malware attacks occurred in Q1 alone. 

“This represents an average of 1.6 million attacks per day, and an alarming 108% increase over Q1 2018. These figures certainly indicate a growing cyber threat landscape which is a risk for local businesses – one that needs to be proactively managed and prevented as far as possible.”

According to Alan Hawkins, security and enterprise sales director at Tarsus, the agreement with Kaspersky will give Tarsus the opportunity to grow its existing Kaspersky partners, as well as recruit new partners by offering them solid profit margins, efficiency, specialisations and skills transfer.
