Kaspersky Lab Reinforces its Position in the Endpoint Security Market

Woburn, MA - September 11, 2013  - Kaspersky Lab has been ranked the third largest vendor in the worldwide Corporate Endpoint Security Suite market by IDC’s “Worldwide Endpoint Security 2013–2017 Forecast and 2012 Vendor Shares” report*.  

In the Security Suite segment of the Corporate Endpoint Security market, Kaspersky Lab is represented by Kaspersky Endpoint Security for Business, which has a 13% global market share. IDC expects this segment of the Corporate Endpoint Security market to be the fastest growing over the next five years, with an estimated 11% CAGR growth. The report says: “IDC expects the endpoint market to be dominated by integrated endpoint security suites that contain anti-malware, desktop firewall, host intrusion prevention, white listing, advanced heuristics, encryption, and patching. A single agent is easier to install and manage while being able to match the capabilities of individual standalone products.”*

Kaspersky Endpoint Security for Business delivers a broad array of tools and technologies to enable companies to see, control and protect all endpoint devices. It offers businesses a critical combination of the industry’s best protection from advanced malware and cybercrime, along with seamless manageability via the Kaspersky Security Center, which helps IT specialists manage a company’s entire IT defenses from a single console.

Consumer Endpoint Security market

According to IDC*, Kaspersky Lab has also improved its position in the B2C segment, climbing to third place among Consumer Endpoint Security vendors worldwide (up from fourth a year ago).

Kaspersky Lab has just launched its new flagship consumer security solution: Kaspersky Internet Security 2014. The solution combines a wide range of easy-to-use, rigorous web security technologies that protect consumers against all types of malware and Internet-based threats, ensuring the highest levels of security for users’ PCs and their digital assets. On top of that, the company is about to launch Kaspersky Internet Security – Multi-Device, a new product designed to protect devices across multiple platforms. 

In the overall Endpoint Security market, Kaspersky Lab remains the fourth largest vendor worldwide, having increased its market share to 7.8% (in B2B + B2C) among all vendors, according to the report*.
