The decade-old partnership between Kaspersky and Scuderia Ferrari grew further stronger, with Kaspersky providing Ferrari with a complete range of cutting-edge IT security measures 24 hours a day, seven days a week from Ferrari’s world-famous factory in Maranello, Italy, to F1 circuits around the world.
The cybersecurity company has continued to hit many different specific and strict Ferrari safety objectives – today all Ferrari endpoints are protected by Kaspersky.
“We got into Formula One 10 years ago, and since then we have been able to build a strong and proven partnership with Ferrari. Though we work in very different industries, we’re united by the same values: technological leadership, and a passion for innovation and continuously getting better at what we do,” said Eugene Kaspersky, CEO of Kaspersky.
“Formula One IT systems are quite advanced and specific, ranging from simulation to car performance measurement systems. They also employ multiple technologies, including high-performance computing and internally developed software. The customized nature of applications requires a more tailored security solution to protect our data. Kaspersky has assisted Ferrari to respond to our evolving requirements and threats by creating innovative and high performing products,” said Alessandro Sala, Head of IT, Security and Compliance at Ferrari.
Kaspersky has been providing Ferrari with multiple types of security – from protecting traditional areas of corporate technology such as endpoints through to penetration testing, vulnerability assessments and threat intelligence, as well as on-demand scanning with minimal performance impact.
To celebrate the important milestone of 10 years of partnership with Ferrari, Kaspersky has launched a dedicated communication campaign focused on values shared by both brands. With this special project, the company aims to encourage people to explore the energy of motorsport as well as the world of digital security, so everyone can fully enjoy the opportunities that technology brings.
“As a world-leading cybersecurity company, we share many values with Scuderia Ferrari, including excellence, passion and teamwork. These values underpin our long and successful partnership and we reinforce them throughout our new campaign,” said Andrew Winton, Vice President, Marketing at Kaspersky.
