KASPERSKY LAB ZAO
Kaspersky Lab software is internationally renowned for its protection against viruses, malware, spam, network and
hacker attacks, and other threats.
In 2008, Kaspersky Lab was rated among the world’s top four leading vendors of information security software solutions
for end users (IDC Worldwide Endpoint Security Revenue by Vendor). Kaspersky Lab is the preferred developer of
computer protection systems among home users in Russia, according to the COMCON survey "TGI-Russia 2009".
Kaspersky Lab was founded in Russia in 1997. Today, it is an international group of companies headquartered in
Moscow with five regional divisions that manage the company's operations in Russia, Western and Eastern Europe, the
Middle East, Africa, North and South America, Japan, China, and other countries in the Asia-Pacific region. The
company employs more than 2,000 highly skilled professionals.
PRODUCTS. Kaspersky Lab’s products provide protection for all systems, from home computers to large corporate
networks.
The personal product range includes anti-virus software for all the devices used in digital life today, spanning desktop,
laptop, and tablet computers, smartphones, and other mobile devices.
Kaspersky Lab delivers applications and services to protect workstations, file and web servers, mail gateways, and
firewalls. Used in conjunction with Kaspersky Lab’s centralized management system, these solutions ensure effective
automated protection for companies and organizations against computer threats. Kaspersky Lab's products are certified
by major test laboratories, compatible with software from diverse vendors, and optimized to run on many hardware
platforms.
Kaspersky Lab’s virus analysts work around the clock. Every day they uncover hundreds of new computer threats, create
tools to detect and disinfect them, and include them in the databases used by Kaspersky Lab applications. Kaspersky
Lab's Anti-Virus database is updated hourly and the Anti-Spam database is updated every five minutes.
TECHNOLOGIES. Many technologies that are now part and parcel of modern anti-virus tools were originally developed
by Kaspersky Lab. This is one of the reasons why many third-party software developers have chosen to use the
Kaspersky Anti-Virus engine in their own applications. Those companies include SafeNet (USA), Alt-N Technologies
(USA), Blue Coat Systems (USA), Check Point Software Technologies (Israel), Clearswift (UK), CommuniGate Systems
(USA), Openwave Messaging (Ireland), D-Link (Taiwan), M86 Security (USA), GFI Software (Malta), IBM (USA), Juniper
Networks (USA), LANDesk (USA), Microsoft (USA), Netasq+Arkoon (France), NETGEAR (USA), Parallels (USA),
SonicWALL (USA), WatchGuard Technologies (USA), ZyXEL Communications (Taiwan). Many of the company’s
innovative technologies are patented.
ACHIEVEMENTS. Over the years, Kaspersky Lab has won hundreds of awards for its services in combating computer
threats. For example, in 2010 Kaspersky Anti-Virus received several top Advanced+ awards in a test administered by
AV-Comparatives, a respected Austrian anti-virus laboratory. But Kaspersky Lab's main achievement is the loyalty of its
users worldwide. The company’s products and technologies protect more than 300 million users, and its corporate clients
number more than 200,000.
