15 April 2015 - Kaspersky Lab has opened a new office in Singapore to oversee national business development, while also becoming the future focal point for the company’s R&D in the region. Eventually it will also become the regional HQ, acting as a business hub for the wider Asia-Pacific region.
Eugene Kaspersky, chairman and CEO of Kaspersky Lab, said: “Singapore is one of the most technologically developed countries in the world, while at the same time one of the main financial hubs on the planet. A strong presence here is simply essential for a successful international company. What’s also important is that the Singapore government fully understands the importance of cybersecurity and creates perfect conditions for a business like ours. As Singapore progresses with its plan to become one of the world’s Smart Nations, we’re ideally placed to support and help the city-state grow and prosper. We’re very excited about the opportunity to be ahead in both thought and technology in the APAC region.”
Singapore is also the location of INTERPOL’s newly opened Global Complex for Innovation (IGCI), with which Kaspersky Lab is working closely. The company is to provide the world’s largest international police organization with its top-level threat intelligence, update it on the global malware landscape on a regular basis, assist in investigations of cyber-incidents, and train officers. One of our top security researchers has moved to Singapore to support the launch of the IGCI’s Digital Forensics Laboratory and to provide high-level advice on site. He’ll be joined soon by colleagues – other top Kaspersky Lab security experts – to make up a full team of researchers located in Singapore.
Kaspersky Lab is the world's largest privately held vendor of endpoint protection solutions. Kaspersky Lab, with its holding company registered in the United Kingdom, currently operates in almost 200 countries and territories across the globe, providing protection for over 400 million users worldwide.
