“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 its 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
Founded in 2004, Kaspersky Lab North America is a Massachusetts corporation and is a wholly-owned subsidiary of its holding company, Kaspersky Labs Limited, based in the United Kingdom.
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 34 offices in 31 countries. Over 3,000 highly-qualified specialists work for Kaspersky Lab.
We are a global corporation, with a global vision and a focus on international markets. Our annual revenues now exceed $700 million ($711 million unaudited revenue in 2014).
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 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. Firmly positioned as one of the top four leading vendors of security solutions for endpoint users, we continue to improve our market position. Our company is named a ‘Leader’ in endpoint protection by the ‘big three’ analyst agencies (Gartner, IDC and Forrester).
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 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.
At Kaspersky Lab we have the Global Research and Analysis Team (GReAT). This elite group of leading security experts operates all over the world and provides leading anti-threat intelligence and research.
We believe that joint effort is the most effective way of fighting cybercriminals. We at Kaspersky Lab 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 among law enforcement agencies 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. Joint effort helps in fighting cybercrime (such as the Carbanak case), disrupting criminal botnets (for example, Simda), and launching new initiatives, e.g. No Ransom etc.
Kaspersky Lab's solutions and services
We are 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.
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 equip small businesses with a security solution that is easy to deploy and manage. Medium-sized companies enjoy the freedom to enhance their advanced endpoint security suite with a number of targeted solutions for mobile devices, mail servers, file servers and collaboration tools; all serving their information security needs through a centralized management console. For large enterprises, we offer a comprehensive portfolio that spans from securing every node in the corporate network, including mobile and portable devices, to protecting data centers and industrial environments as a whole.
The company also provides solutions that are designed specifically to counter DDoS attacks and prevent online banking fraud. All our solutions are built upon our proven threat intelligence, which is also available to clients in the form of security intelligence services.
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.
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.
Our educational initiatives
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.
One of the projects run by the Kaspersky Academy is the Security Startup Challenge, which launched in 2015. This is a mentor-driven acceleration program developed in partnership with venture industry leaders, and provides startups with access to cutting-edge business, cybersecurity and cross-industry expertise from around the world.
