Naver Business Platform (NBP), a Naver’s subsidiary providing information technology (IT) infrastructure and solutions, joined hands with Russia’s largest internet portal operator Yandex for cooperation in development and operation of cloud service.

NBP joined the Yandex Scale 2019 conference held Tuesday in Moscow, Russia as a major global partner of Yandex and agreed to the partnership, the company said Wednesday.

The two companies under cooperation aim to service their own cloud platform to customers both in Korea and Russia. They will focus on interlinking platforms to allow customers to use them freely in both languages and under privacy laws of each nation and then jointly develop technologies for data storage and management, security and infrastructure.

Yandex operates the largest internet portal in Russia, which also has emerged as a major search engine with cloud services in Central Asian nations like Ukraine, Kazakhstan and Belarus.

NBP expects the latest partnership to help business customers in their inroads throughout Eurasia.

NBP provides information technology infrastructure and solutions for businesses. It has gone beyond Naver names to supply service to Bank of Korea, Korea Railroad, SK Telecom, Samsung Card and PUBG.
