Kaspersky Lab signs on Dicker Data for A/NZ

08 May 2019

Kaspersky Lab ANZ and Dicker Data recently announced their brand new partnership which has now commenced.

For a year now, Margrith Appleby has been the general manager of Kaspersky Lab operations in Australia and New Zealand, dedicated to growing the local business.

“I’m truly excited by this partnership, Dicker Data is Australia’s largest value-added distributor with extensive local market reach and knowledge that will help drive Kaspersky’s world-class technology into mid-market, SMB and enterprise customer segments across A/NZ,” she says.

“The global cybersecurity firm protects over 400 million users worldwide and Dicker Data will gain access to a portfolio spanning threat intelligence, endpoint protection and next-generation security solutions. 

This partnership also gives rise to Kaspersky Lab joining forces with a leading distributor housing in excess of 5000 partners, including value-added resellers, system integrators and managed service providers.

“I am delighted to welcome Dicker Data on board,” says Kaspersky Lab Asia Pacific managing director Stephan Neumeier says. 

“We will see this partnership grow businesses together and secure new customers within Australia and New Zealand.”

“I’m pleased to be announcing our new partnership with Kaspersky Lab in Australia and New Zealand,” Dicker Data chairman and CEO David Dicker says. 

“As the threat landscape continues to evolve and change each day, security has remained a top priority for our partners and their end-users alike. The addition of Kaspersky Lab will enable our partners to provide a range of cybersecurity protection and threat intelligence capabilities to secure their customers.”
