Sony teaming up with Kaspersky for Vaio


One of the leading antivirus security firms in the world has found an ally today, after they announced that they are offering its security products for home PC protection.

Kaspersky Lab announced that the company and Sony have agreed to consolidate in a joint venture that would make Kaspersky Lab’s antivirus program the stock security protection for Sony Vaio devices in America.

This exclusive agreement will give customers premium protection during the first weeks of setup. A 30 day subscription to Kaspersky Internet Security 2012 will come with the Sony Vaio packages in the United States, Latin America and Canada starting May 2012.

Kaspersky is the world’s third largest security vendor. Their products usually earn high rankings from independent security evaluations and security analysts. Kaspersky Internet Security earned a 4.5 out of 5 star rating in an evaluation done by CNET and was awarded the “Product of the Year” last year by AV-Comparatives.

Kaspersky Lab president Steve Orenberg said, “We are genuinely thrilled with the opportunity to work with the Sony Vaio team and its incredible lineup of consumer computing devices. For years, Sony has been the gold-standard of consumer electronic quality and consumer experience, and at Kaspersky Lab, we pride ourselves on delivering the same quality and experience to our own customers.”
