Kaspersky Lab Earns an “A” on CRN 2015 Annual Report Card

10 Aug 2015

Woburn, MA – August 10, 2015 – Kaspersky Lab North America today announced that it has earned high marks in the Network Security Software category of The Channel Company’s esteemed 2015 CRN® Annual Report Card. This honor summarizes results from a comprehensive study that details solution provider satisfaction with hardware, services and software vendors. The organizations with the highest marks are named to the prestigious Annual Report Card list and celebrated as best-in-class by their partners. The results also provide the IT vendor community with valuable feedback—directly from their solution providers—that can be used to hone product offerings and improve communication with partners.

“In the ever-evolving threat landscape, resellers must provide their customers with a security solution that is easy to implement and manage without compromising quality and efficacy,” said Jon Whitlock, VP, B2B Marketing, Kaspersky Lab North America. “At the same time, they must invest in a Partner Program that promises profitability and a deep commitment from the security solution vendor. With world class endpoint protection solutions combined with unmatched partner profitability and an award-winning partner program, the value we offer our partners is second to none. This award is yet another testament to our 100 percent channel commitment.”

Kaspersky Lab provides superior malware detection and is continuously rated as best-in-class by independent antimalware test labs, this year earning first place in 51 independent tests. In January 2015, for the fourth consecutive year, Gartner named Kaspersky Lab a “Leader” in the Magic Quadrant for Endpoint Protection Solutions. With multiple scanning technologies working together in a single codebase, Kaspersky Lab’s efficient engine finds the malware that other security solution providers miss.

“Today’s solution providers are juggling multiple vendors, product lines and customer demands. They are looking for true partnerships with their vendors in order to tailor solutions that will meet and exceed their customers’ expectations,” said Robert Faletra, CEO of The Channel Company. “CRN’s Annual Report Card continues to give solution providers an outlet to deliver feedback to vendors and recognizes those vendors at the top of their game. We join these solution providers in applauding 2015 honoree Kaspersky Lab and recognize them for their stellar performance.”
