Update on the health of the business Kaspersky Lab’s North American president, Steve
Orenberg, told partners that business continues to be strong and Kaspersky
remains ahead of its partners in annual growth.

of B2B marketing. Chris Doggett, who helped build the channel organization for
Sophos, is now vice-president of channel sales. And Chris Gaebler, formerly of
Accenture and Sony, is now vice-president of B2C marketing with responsibility
for driving the customer experience.
