QUOTES: Eugene Kaspersky, CEO
and co-founder Kaspersky Lab
“Every one of us faces
the problem of choice every day. The same goes for company managers too - just
in the business area. And since our recent research shows that half of all CEOs
and CIOs consider cyber-threats to be the top business risk of all, it’s clear
that choices made with regard to security software are vital for business.
Forrester’s Wave ratings help managers make the right decisions when choosing
optimal solutions for protecting their businesses against all types of cyber
threats. We’re always striving to maintain the provision of superior protection
for our clients, and we feel that this has been acknowledged by Forrester in
this report and we are very pleased that we’ve been included in the “Leaders”
group in this rating.”
