The annual Kaspersky Lab Africa Partner conference brought together 45 representatives of the brand’s key partners across the region, to discuss the evolving cyber threat landscape, to equip these partners with the insights on recent trends and to discuss new business opportunities with them.
Says Riaan Badenhorst, MD of Kaspersky Lab Africa: “Kaspersky Lab continues to build a strong partner community, where we understand that our resellers not only need the right insight to sell effectively, but they also require an understanding of where the brand is heading and what the company is doing to predict cyber threats.”
