Oxfordshire, UK 16th March 2005 – Kaspersky Lab, a leading developer of secure content management systems, has launched Kaspersky News Agent, an innovative program that delivers updates on virus alerts, news and the latest insight from the Analyst Diary direct to the user’s desktop.

News Agent allows users to subscribe free of charge to receive all or selected news from any of Kaspersky Lab’s dedicated news channels and has been specifically designed to inform users about the very latest cyber threats by constantly displaying the status of the current virus activity.

David Emm, Senior Technology Consultant of Kaspersky Lab comments, “Today’s threats can become global epidemics in hours or, in worst cases, just minutes, riding the wave of business-critical messaging infrastructures and exploiting growing numbers of system vulnerabilities. A fast response to new threats and the timely circulation of information about their appearance and spread is becoming ever more important. Kaspersky Lab has consistently delivered a fast response in updating its virus signatures, now with the release of News Agent computer users everywhere will be able to learn quickly about new threats and how to deal with them effectively.”

In addition, News Agent alerts users to updates to the Analyst Diary launched last year, which provides a fascinating insight of the latest developments in the Kaspersky Virus Lab. This can often alert users to emerging threats, whilst they are still being formally identified.

News Agent is available free of charge and can be used a stand-alone application, or integrated with other Kaspersky Lab products.
