Kaspersky Lab climbs up the leader board on the Sunday Times Top Track 250
24 Oct 2012
Kaspersky Lab, a leading developer of secure content and threat management solutions, announces that it has been placed 89th in this year’s Sunday Times Top Track 250, moving up from its 90th position in 2011, following an increase in sales.
This placement comes after a fruitful year when Kaspersky Lab discovered nation-state cyber-espionage campaigns now known as Flame and Gauss - highly sophisticated weapons developed to target entities in several countries. The company’s products and technologies regularly score highly in comparative tests carried out by independent testing centres and IT publications. Kaspersky Lab products consistently receive the most prestigious international awards and certification verifying that the quality of technology used meets or exceeds the standards.
Eugene Kaspersky, CEO and Co-founder of Kaspersky Lab, said, “It’s great that we’re on this list. It’s not easy being both large and innovative at the same time, but we’re having a good crack at it all the same. With cybercriminals getting increasingly smarter, Internet security technologies need to follow suit. Our team of experts has come up with some of the most ground-breaking detection and analysis techniques for advanced cyber-threats, together with the corresponding technologies that combat these online threats on a global scale. We endeavour to keep pace with ever-evolving malware – whether it targets consumers or businesses – in order to push ourselves even higher in next year’s rankings and further highlight our, by then, 16 years’ of hard work.”
