When I left Moscow last month after spending a week getting to knowKaspersky Labs and its executives I felt that the company was embarking on a journey into the enterprise space, but they needed a captain or at least a first mate.

Kaspersky has done very well for a private company in the consumer space. The next step is in the enterprise markets around the world. Eugene Buyakin, the COO of Kaspersky told me that the company needed customers for the long term. With most of its sales in consumer markets you risk growth on the whims of the mass market. Just askJohnson & Johnson or the inventor of the Pet Rock about that.
