Kaspersky and Axoft expand cooperation to drive Enterprise business growth in Turkey
20 September, 2021

Kaspersky has announced a partnership agreement with Axoft, a global channel expert in providing digital technologies and services, which will see the company becoming an authorized value-added distributor of Kaspersky's corporate security solutions in Turkey. Axoft will focus in particular on Enterprise solutions sales. It currently distributes Kaspersky at the territory of Russia and CIS countries. The addition of the new territory means it now spreads the sales network further abroad and expands the product portfolio in Turkey
"We're happy to confirm the appointment of Axoft as our distributor in Turkey," says Amir Kanaan, Managing Director for the Middle East, Turkey and Africa at Kaspersky. "Axoft has a solid track record distributing Kaspersky products in Russia and CIS, so extending the agreement to cover the new territory is a logical move. This partnership comes in line with our vision and commitment to contributing to the development of safer enterprise environment for enterprises across Turkey and the globe."

Commenting on the reasons for partnering with Axoft in Turkey, Amir points out that Axoft has already built a presence and resources in the region, so adding new products and services simply takes advantage of that. Axoft team will enable Kaspersky to increase its sales and technical reach to support new sectors and customers. Axoft is well positioned to take Kaspersky products and services into the new region as it is one of the most strategic distributors of Kaspersky in both European and Asian parts of the world.

Axoft is planning to use all resources (pre-sale, technical support, marketing, partner services, etc.) and accumulated experience and knowledge in large-scale projects with Kaspersky solutions to allow their partners to expand their business and help customers solve their problems related to cybersecurity. This holistic approach matches Kaspersky's comprehensive security portfolio, as includes various and unique leading endpoint protection and a number of specialized security solutions and services to fight sophisticated and evolving digital threats.

Evgeny Kurtukov, Strategic Development Director at Axoft commented on the new cooperation agreement: "We are successfully doing business with Kaspersky in Russia and other countries for over 15 years. Now we are glad that we have expanded our area of cooperation in Turkey this year. Partnership with Kaspersky will enable Axoft to offer our partners and clients the most advanced solutions for corporate cybersecurity".
