Kaspersky Lab partners with Pune-based Sakri IT Solutions Pvt.Ltd
Kaspersky Lab, a leading developer of secure content management solutions, has announced its partnership with Pune-based Sakri IT Solutions Pvt. Ltd. Under a 3 year agreement that will be signed very shortly, the Indian company will begin retailing Kaspersky Lab’s products right across the North & West of India. Sakri IT Solutions Pvt. Ltd. will be 100% dedicated to developing sales of Kaspersky Lab’s products across the area and will also be providing a round-the-clock freephone customer support line with effect from 01 Jan 2010.
Hyderabad-based Zoom Technologies Pvt. Ltd. will remain as the exclusive business solutions partner and retail partner for the Southern and Eastern regions of India. Zoom Technologies will provide the same level of round-the-clock freephone customer support within their own region as that offered by Sakri IT Solutions Pvt. Ltd.
Expansion of Kaspersky Lab’s partner network in India is part of the Company’s plans to increase its presence in the country’s market generally. Registration of the Kaspersky Lab India local office in December of this year was the first step in this direction.
Alexander Gnatusin, Director, Channel, SA - Kaspersky Lab said, “Our business and corporate sectors remain under development by our tried and trusted partner, Zoom Technologies. When it comes to retail market development, Kaspersky Lab is happy to be associated with Sakri IT Solutions Pvt. Ltd. for the North and West of India. This will come into effect as of 01 Jan 2010. We look forward to a long and successful association with them.”
Over the last 2 to 3 years, Kaspersky Lab has received an enormous amount of requests from companies keen to form retail partnerships in the area. However, after a thorough analysis of the potential candidates, Pune-based Sakri IT Solutions Pvt. Ltd came out on top.
Alexander continued “There are 3 main factors that contribute strongly to our Company’s strength: high-level technologies and products, an international team of recognized experts & our partner network. Developing a partner ecosystem is one of our main focuses and we pay tremendous attention to the so-called ‘localability’ of our products and services”.
In addition to the standard benefits of being a Kaspersky Lab partner, the Company’s Indian partners will also benefit from some of the best training available in the world, as well as pan-Indian support. Kaspersky Lab’s trainers will be visiting Kaspersky Lab’s Indian office and providing a number of training sessions for new, local staff and also for Kaspersky Lab’s channel partners. Kaspersky Lab firmly believes that providing a strong system of support is the only effective way to achieve good levels of understanding among their customers and future clients.
Kaspersky Lab aims to provide customers with reliable protection against all forms of IT threat. This in turn consolidates Kaspersky Lab’s position in the market and helps Kaspersky Lab and its partners to grow both bigger and more successful.
