Cyber security provider Kaspersky Labs have partnered with Huawei to provide hybrid cloud security solutions to enterprise customers. As per the terms of the deal, Kaspersky will integrate their cyber protection solutions into Huawei’s cloud platform to simplify data center as well as desktop cloud solutions for customers.

According to Kaspersky, the rising number of cyber attacks is a growing concern for enterprises of all shapes and sizes. They say that with the growing popularity of cloud technology, they are simultaneously witnessing a proportional increase in cyber risks.

Kaspersky say that data centers, as well as on-premise environments, need to be protected with high-end security products, especially because enterprises deploy hybrid environments to be on the safer side.

By partnering with Huawei, Kaspersky claim that they will be able to integrate a wide range of security products that will suit hybrid cloud customers. They claim that Huawei’s FusionSphere will provide customers with simple virtualisation and VDI (Virtual Desktop Infrastructure) services.

Matvey Voytov, Global Cloud Security Director, Kaspersky Lab, commented:

The newly launched integrated solution is hosted on Kaspersky Hybrid Cloud Security and Huawei Fusionsphere Products. Kaspersky Hybrid Cloud Security provides a unified security for any stage or scenario in the cloud.

The solution is suitable for cloud migration and native cloud scenarios, protecting the physical and virtualised workloads of the enterprise, whether it is running locally, in a data centre, or in a public cloud.

Huawei say that this solution will provide agentless security protection solution and lightweight agent security for virtual machine + VDI scenarios, offering customers multi-level, granular and robust security without compromising on productivity.

Kaspersky are delighted with this deal and are looking forward to teaming up with Huawei. Shrenik Bhayani, General Manager, South Asia, Kaspersky Lab, commented:

Huawei is a leading provider of cloud computing solutions for network equipment. As a leader in information security, Kaspersky Lab is pleased to start a comprehensive co-operation with Huawei in the field of cloud computing security.

We are looking forward to have such redefining associations in India as well to provide better security for the country’s cloud computing users.

Industry patrons believe that hybrid cloud security industry is gaining momentum with such moves, following the acquisition of StackPointCloud by NetApp.
