Commenting on her appointment, Lai Leng says, “Cybersecurity is becoming more and more important as advanced threats are increasingly becoming sophisticated and the number of breaches is on the rise. In addition, companies’ reliance on the internet continuously increases, resulting in enterprises becoming very vulnerable to social engineering attacks. I believe Kaspersky has the technology, the talents, and the values to keep enterprises secure against cybercriminals, so I am thrilled to be part of this dynamic company and I am fully committed to bringing our enterprise business to the next level.”

Lai Leng will report directly to Yeo Siang Tiong, Kaspersky’s general manager for Southeast Asia. She will be based in Singapore where the global cybersecurity company’s Asia Pacific headquarters is located.

“2019 was a hugely successful year for our corporate portfolio and we are eyeing to carry this momentum forward in 2020. While the pandemic has hit the region badly, I am sure that, with Lai Leng at the helm, we can still double down on our enterprise segment as we are more equipped to meet the enterprises’ growing demand for cybersecurity solutions and services,” comments Yeo Siang Tiong, General Manager for Southeast Asia at Kaspersky.
