Company Overview

Kaspersky Lab Overview: our values, business, solutions and services

  • 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 totalled 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-to-medium-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.

    • Our unique experience and knowledge

      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 neutralisation of all forms of malicious programs.

  • CSR and Global Brand Initiatives

    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.

    Our sponsorships

    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”.

    Our educational initiatives

    We believe that encouraging dialog and launching educational programmes 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.
