It’s a cyber-war – an arms race that pits us against the cybercriminals who negatively impact how we use the Internet in our personal and professional lives. At Kaspersky Lab, our mission is to respond rapidly to all Internet threats by joining together with the broader community to find ways that best combat these criminals.
We put all our resources and know-how into preventing these threats from spreading, and educating the community at large on best practices to ensure the greatest possible online security.
The success of our mission has resulted in Kaspersky Lab emerging as the world’s largest privately held anti-malware company. Founded in 1997, the company offers its products and technologies to industry and consumers in virtually every country around the globe. Today, more than 250 million users worldwide are protected by our technologies. And every week, we add more than 150,000 new users.
As a result of supporting our customers’ needs, Kaspersky Lab has grown to more than 900 employees, with more than half of us focused on R&D and customer support. Our products have continually received the highest recognition for quality, including CNET’s 2006 & 2007 Editors' Choice Award. And we’ve experienced exceptional financial growth, with 2007 bookings of more than $200 million – a 140% increase over 2006 and an increase of ten times within the last three years alone.
We are also the largest licensor of anti-malware technology in the world, with more than 130 leading IT security, networking and messaging software and hardware vendors choosing our state-of-the-art anti-malware protection for use inside their own products. These companies include industry leaders like Microsoft, Check Point, Nokia, Juniper Networks, Alcatel-Lucent, SonicWall, ClearSwift and many others.
Recognized by Gartner as a visionary company in the endpoint security market, Kaspersky Lab combines innovative technology with a unique approach to managing risk and delivering new operational efficiencies. We do this by minimizing our customers’ window of exposure, with the most resource efficient endpoint and server security solutions available.
