Kaspersky Lab Tops the Million Mark on its Facebook Account!
Kaspersky Lab, a leading developer of secure
content and threat management solutions, announces that it now has more than 1,000,000 friends on its global Facebook
The company has a total of over 1.5 million fans
to its Facebook pages and about 200,000 followers across all its Twitter
As a modern and innovative company, Kaspersky
Lab pays serious attention to its development on the Internet. In June 2012 it became
the most popular paid AV company on Facebook and Twitter based on the
popularity of its pages. These channels
are not only used to share corporate news, but also to deliver the hottest
stories from the world of IT security. In recent weeks Kaspersky Lab has used
its social networks to highlight its analysis of Duqu and Flame, highly
sophisticated, malicious programs that have been actively used as international
cyber-weapons. At the moment the company is providing updates on Gauss, a
newly-discovered complex cyber-espionage toolkit which appears to have been
sponsored at a governmental level.
Evgeny Chereshnev, Kaspersky Lab’s Global Social
Media Director, said: “Unlike most companies, we’re not using social networks
to make more money. For us, it’s part of a mission to save the world. That
means being a true friend to those who need our help. It means sharing
top-level expertise, telling the truth about what is going on and ensuring that
people are always protected, even in the worst-case scenario. Like friendship,
this is no simple, one-off thing. It’s an on-going journey built on shared
loyalty and trust. And seeing more than 1 million people join us so quickly
tells us we are following the right path together.”
