Kaspersky Lab has added Singapore to its ever-expanding worldwide network of offices. The new office is the 34th representative division of the company. Kaspersky Lab offices are currently located in 31 countries on five continents. The new office in Singapore will oversee national business development and will become the future focal point for the company’s R&D in the region. Sooner or later Singapore will also become the regional HQ, and will act as a business hub for the wider Asia-Pacific region.
The company perceives great potential in terms of business opportunities, particularly in the corporate and governmental sectors.
It’s worth noting that, Singapore is also the location of INTERPOL’s newly opened Global Complex for Innovation (IGCI), with which Kaspersky is working thoroughly.
A top security researcher has also moved to Singapore to support the launch of the IGCI’s Digital Forensics Laboratory and to provide high-level advice on site. Other colleagues and top Kaspersky Lab security experts will also join the team of researchers located in Singapore.
Commenting on the office opening, Eugene Kaspersky, chairman and CEO of Kaspersky Lab, said, “Singapore is one of the most technologically developed countries in the world, while at the same time one of the main financial hubs on the planet. A strong presence here is simply essential for a successful international company. What’s also important is that the Singapore government fully understands the importance of cybersecurity and creates perfect conditions for a business like ours. As Singapore progresses with its plan to become one of the world’s Smart Nations, we’re ideally placed to support and help the city-state grow and prosper. We’re very excited about the opportunity to be ahead in both thought and technology in the APAC region.”
