Kaspersky Lab and GBS extend partnership: Kaspersky Lab’s anti-phishing technology is now integrated in iQ.Suite

Karlsruhe, Germany

Just in time for CeBIT, GROUP Business Software (GBS), supplier of solutions and services for IBM and Microsoft collaboration platforms, and global cybersecurity company, Kaspersky Lab have expanded their technology cooperation. The Kaspersky Anti-Virus Engine, currently available in iQ.Suite’s anti-malware module, iQ.Suite Watchdog, has been joined by Kaspersky Lab’s anti-phishing technology. Both technologies are integrated into GBS’s email management software.

With the help of advanced cloud technology, the anti-phishing technology makes it possible to detect and block suspicious URLs in emails. This allows the phishing websites in emails to be identified and all further emails blocked.

By improving protection from phishing within their email management solution, GBS has taken a clear stand against the increasing number of direct, personalised phishing emails and cyber-attacks on businesses. Phishing mails are well-disguised and difficult for users to detect. Perfectly-worded, with personal greetings and a deceptively realistic appearance, today’s phishing emails seem serious and often succeed in enticing users to open attachments or to click on links.

“Effective, powerful protection for sensitive business data is a must in the face of increasingly professional cyber-threats. GBS and Kaspersky Lab have been working together since February 2015. Our deeper co-operation, that integrates more of our partner’s excellent Internet security technology into our solution, makes everyone a winner,” says Andreas Richter, EVP Marketing & Product Management at GBS.

“Kaspersky Lab is delighted to offer its leading security intelligence and next-generation security technology to GBS and its customers. Phishing scams are one of today’s most widespread cyberthreats, luring people into sharing their account details and money and infecting their devices with malware. Kaspersky Lab’s anti-phishing technology will provide GBS’ customers with a robust, additional layer of protection from these highly convincing, yet dangerous attacks,” says Alexander Karpitsky, Head of Licensing at Kaspersky Lab.

iQ.Suite Wall, iQ.Suite’s anti-spam module, has also profited from Kaspersky Lab’s technology. iQ.Suite users now have a highly effective tool at their fingertips to put a stop to spam, the number one productivity killer.
