Kaspersky Lab, one of the fastest growing companies in the cybersecurity industry in the world, announces the extension of its sponsorship agreement with the Formula 1 racing team - Scuderia Ferrari. The new five-year contract will apply from 2017 to 2021.

Eugene Kasperski , president and CEO of Kaspersky Lab, said:

"It's a big and important day for us. I am excited that we are prolonging our cooperation with the Scuderia Ferrari team. Although we operate in various industries, we are guided by the same values ​​and strive to be the best in our field. I am waiting for more racing emotions and new Ferrari triumphs. "

Cooperation between companies was initiated in 2010 and is expanding from year to year. In addition to sponsoring the Scuderia Ferrari team taking part in Formula 1 races, Kaspersky Lab also developed the Kaspersky Motorsport project. This initiative covers all Kaspersky Lab's activities in the automotive field: from participating in races and supporting young talented drivers to achieving their vision of car safety.
