Given the cybercrime realities that mobile and Internet users are faced with, it has now become essential for consumers to pay attention to the protection of their mobile devices.

However, with the added focus being placed in the cloud, where many consumers use it to increasingly store personal and/or professional data on remote servers, in an aim to safeguard data, it is also essential to ensure the use of secure cloud storage.

To assist users in safeguarding their ‘stored’ information in the cloud, Kaspersky Lab and Tresorit are running a special offer.

Anyone who purchases or renews the recently launched Kaspersky Internet Security – multi-device 2017 protection product, or the Kaspersky Total Security – multi–device protection product, will receive 100Gb of secure online cloud storage, for free from Tresorit.

For online purchases, this promotion will run until 18 January 2017. The promotion, on retail store box products, on the shelves, will run for December 2016.

Riaan Badenhorst, MD of Kaspersky Lab Africa, says: “Securing your data from digital threats, means more than just investing in proper virus protection for devices. And given that cloud storage is becoming a popular means to store photos, emails, music etc, one of the most critically important items users should focus on is cloud antivirus protection or using a secure cloud storage platform.

“This promotion will not only provide customers with world-class protection for their devices, but give them added cloud storage protection, through our partnership with Tresorit.”

Tresorit is an end-to-end encrypted cloud storage, which offers a secure alternative to mainstream file sync services. “Antivirus protection is essential for securing the devices themselves, while for files stored and shared in the cloud, end-to-end encryption can provide the best protection from surveillance or hackers,” says Istvan Lam, co-founder and CEO at Tresorit.
