"We believe that everyone – from home computer users through to large corporations and governments – should be able to protect what matters to them most. Whether it’s privacy, family, finances, customers, business success or critical infrastructure, we've made it our mission to secure it all. We succeed in this by delivering security expertise, working closely with international organizations and law enforcement agencies to fight cybercriminals, as well as developing technologies, solutions and services that help you stay safe from all the cyberthreats out there."
Eugene Kaspersky, Chairman and CEO of Kaspersky Lab
We are one of the world’s fastest-growing cybersecurity companies and the largest one that is privately-owned. With a holding registered in the United Kingdom, we operate in 200 countries and territories and have 37 offices in 32 countries. Almost 3,300 highly-qualified specialists work for Kaspersky Lab.
We are a global company, with a global vision and a focus on international markets. Our global unaudited IFRS revenue for 2015 totaled USD 619 million.
Our independence allows us to be more agile; to think differently and act faster. We are forever innovating, delivering protection that’s effective, usable and accessible. We pride ourselves on developing world-leading security that keeps us – and every one of our 400 million users protected by our technologies and 270,000 corporate clients – one step ahead of potential threats.
Our commitment to people as well as advanced technology also keeps us ahead of the competition. Our company is named a ‘Leader’ in endpoint protection by the ‘big three’ analyst agencies (Gartner, IDC and Forrester). Firmly positioned as one of the top four leading endpoint security vendors, we continue to improve our market position.
Endpoint security has always been the core of our business, especially in the small-tomedium-sized business segment. At the same time, over the next few years, we expect one of our main growth drivers to be in the enterprise market, particularly in the non-endpoint security area. Our customers’ needs change in line with the evolution of the threat landscape. Therefore, we are constantly expanding our enterprise portfolio with security solutions and services strengthened by Kaspersky Lab’s global cybersecurity intelligence.
The rapid proliferation of new technologies provides people with new opportunities. However, the resultant, growing dependence on IT makes cyberthreats a global problem. Since the IT industry has become so important to the world, expertise in IT security has become doubly so. We at Kaspersky Lab understand the world’s cyberthreat landscape and our experts possess immense knowledge and experience in the detection and neutralization of all forms of malicious programs. The wealth of expertise we have gained over years of combating major IT threats is our most valuable asset.
Our Global Research and Analysis Team (GReAT) is an elite group of leading security experts who operate all over the world and provide leading anti-threat intelligence and research.
The team is well-known for the discovery and dissection of the world’s most sophisticated threats, including cyber-espionage and cybersabotage threats such as Flame and miniFlame, Gauss, RedOctober, NetTraveler, Icefog, Careto/The Mask, Darkhotel, Regin, Cloud Atlas, Epic Turla, Equation and Duqu 2.0 among others. To chronicle all of the ground-breaking malicious cybercampaigns that have been investigated by GReAT, Kaspersky Lab has launched the Targeted Cyberattack Logbook.
Joint effort is the most effective way of fighting cybercriminals. To this end, we share our expertise, knowledge and technical findings with the world’s security community as we believe that there are no borders to providing security
We are proud to work with global IT security vendors, international organizations, and national and regional law enforcement agencies all over the world. Our company takes part in joint cyberthreat investigations with such companies as Adobe, AlienVault Labs, Dell Secureworks, Crowdstrike and others. Our partners in the field of law enforcement include INTERPOL, Europol, The National High Tech Crime Unit (NHTCU) of the Netherlands’ Police Agency and The City of London Police, as well as Computer Emergency Response Teams (CERTs) worldwide. By joining forces we can help fight cybercrime (such as the Carbanak case), disrupting criminal botnets (for example, Simda), and launch new initiatives (such as No Ransom).
The cornerstone of our business strategy is to transform our leading security intelligence into real protection for our clients, to address current and emerging cyberthreats.
Our portfolio encompasses solutions to suit a wide range of customers. We protect home users, small companies, medium-sized businesses and enterprises from different types of threats and provide them with convenient tools to control and manage their security.
We empower home users with a range of products to protect all corners of their lives from cybercrime. We understand the needs of small businesses and have a unique multi-layered solution especially for them, which unites ease of management and effective protection. We cover all the needs of large enterprises with our full enterprise platform that helps to prevent all types of cyberthreats, detects even the most sophisticated attacks, responds to security incidents and predicts the evolution of the threat landscape. We offer a comprehensive portfolio of solutions and services that spans securing every node in the corporate network, including mobile and portable devices, to protecting data centers and industrial environments as a whole.
As a technology-driven company we invest heavily in R&D to support the innovative ideas we believe in. That is why about one third of the company’s employees are R&D specialists developing and maintaining all of our solutions in-house, which is key to providing a holistic approach to security.
Kaspersky Lab is consistently awarded top scores in more independent tests than any other vendor.
Our ultimate mission - to save the world - shows the company’s commitment to making cyberspace safer and to protect what matters most to people. This vision unites the company’s business goals and approach to corporate social responsibility.
We are always delighted to work with companies that are as passionate about what they do as we are. This is why, since 2010, Kaspersky Lab has been an official sponsor of the Scuderia Ferrari Formula One racing team. Scuderia Ferrari, in turn, chose us to provide it with a complete, cutting edge IT security solution. It is easy to see that the two companies have much in common – both are up against tough competition and committed to technological leadership in order to stay ahead. Since 2012 Kaspersky Lab’s logo has featured on Ferrari’s Formula One car as well as on the drivers’ overalls and team uniform. In 2015 Kaspersky Lab announced the continuation of its sponsorship contract with the Scuderia Ferrari Formula One racing team.
Along with the Scuderia Ferrari sponsorship, we support a number of geographical expeditions to some of the world’s most remote places. In early 2012, with the support of Kaspersky Lab, British explorer Felicity Aston made a 59-day, 1,700 km journey to become the first woman in history to cross Antarctica alone. In 2013, Kaspersky Lab also supported the 7 Volcanoes Expedition. Later in 2015 Kaspersky Lab announced its support of the Archeological Society at Athens in its restoration of the murals at the excavation of the Akrotiri settlement on Santorini Island, known as the Greek “Pompeii”.
We believe that encouraging dialog and launching educational programs are essential steps towards international collaboration in the fight against cybercrime. That is why we operate the Kaspersky Academy: a series of projects dedicated to supporting young talent in IT security.
