Kaspersky and Ingram Micro have extended their distribution agreement to cover the entire EU and European Free Trade Association (EFTA) states.

This enhanced agreement means Ingram Micro is able to offer more customers access to Kaspersky-powered cybersecurity products through its own Cloud Marketplace. In return, Kaspersky will benefit from a wider distribution of its products and services throughout the Eurozone.

“By adding Kaspersky Lab to our cloud solutions portfolio in Europe, Ingram Micro continues to deliver a significant value to its resellers by providing access to a proven leader in the security industry," Renee Bergeron, senior vice president, Ingram Micro Cloud said.

"It allows our customers to easily expand their portfolio and cross sell more cloud solutions. We are proud to add yet another valuable player in the field of security as the rise of cyber crime continues to accelerate.”

MSPs will now have access to software packages through the marketplace, which include Kaspersky security suites bundled with other software products.

Specifically, partners will be able to benefit from Ingram Micro's tight integration with Office 365 and the Kaspersky Lab portfolio that have been engineered to work closely together and protect end users.

“Ingram Micro’s Cloud Marketplace is perfectly aligned to Kaspersky Lab’s Managed Service Provider Program. We have worked with Ingram Micro for years across the world and are delighted that our partnership has been extended across Europe," Russ Madley, head of B2B, Channel for UK and Ireland at Kaspersky Lab said.

“This will mean that an increased number of users will have easy access to our security software – which continues to be the most independently tested and awarded solution and receive multiple accolades – through Ingram Micro’s Cloud Marketplace.”

It follows news that Kaspersky has now signed up 1,000 MSPs to its specialist partner programme in less than a year, despite growing international concern about the company's alleged ties to the Russian government.
