Kaspersky Lab integrates asknet´s student verification process in its online shop

(PresseBox) (Karlsruhe, ) Karlsruhe, November 17, 2015 – Kaspersky Lab introduces, with the integration of asknet Verify, a reliable and fast verification process to prove a student´s eligibility for receiving a promotional discount. The IT security expert benefits from the system´s capability to verify the eligibility already during the online purchase process. Promotional campaigns and product offers for students can thereby be executed cost-effectively, securely and without any risk of malpractice.

The asknet Verify solution enables Kaspersky Lab to verify more than three million students at universities and colleges in Germany, Austria and Switzerland. The connection of additional countries to the online verification process will take place soon. The manual verification is already available for all countries. One of the main advantages of asknet´s solution is its easy and effortless integration with standard and customized online shop solutions.
