Kaspersky Lab Wins CRN’s 2017 ARC Award for Endpoint Security

Solution Providers Recognize Kaspersky Lab as a Best-in-Class Channel Provider of Endpoint Security for 10 Consecutive Years

Woburn, MA, August, 14, 2017Kaspersky Lab North America announced today that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has recognized the company as the winner in the Endpoint Security category of CRN®‘s 2017 Annual Report Card (ARC) awards program, sweeping the category in all three areas – partnership, support and product innovation.

The Annual Report Card summarizes results from a comprehensive survey that details solution provider satisfaction across product innovation, support and partnership for the hardware, services and software vendors they team up with. The vendors with the highest ratings are named to the prestigious Annual Report Card list of winners 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 refine product offerings, enhance support offerings and improve communication with partners.

In April 2017, Kaspersky Lab launched the release of a new version of Kaspersky Endpoint Security for Business, the company’s flagship corporate security solution for the constantly evolving cyberthreat landscape. The new edition comes with multiple manageability enhancements, increased flexibility of data protection and centralized control of more platforms, applications and devices. Kaspersky Endpoint Security for Business delivers true cybersecurity covering multiple levels of the corporate IT network. Recently, the company’s innovative endpoint solution was recognized in SC Magazine’s 2017 review of endpoint security products with a five-out-of-five star rating.

Kaspersky Lab’s success continued throughout the year in support as well when the company announced its 2017 American Business Award win in the “Customer Service Department of the Year” category. The company’s award-winning Support and Services department provides customers with personalized, dedicated service offerings, including in-depth deployment assistance and hands-on learning of its cybersecurity technology.

“As a trusted and well-known leader in endpoint security, we strive to deliver the industry’s best multi-layered protection and award winning support,” said Jason Stein, vice president of channel, Kaspersky Lab North America. “CRN has awarded us as the top company, sweeping the entire ARC endpoint security category this year, which validates for us that the quality of our cybersecurity solutions soars over the competition in the industry. We’ve proven continuous success for the past 10 years in this category, demonstrating our dedication to lead innovation in the endpoint security market and our commitment to consistently support our customers and partners.”

“An ARC Award is a truly meaningful honor, representing direct affirmation from channel partners of the quality and ingenuity of a vendor’s product, support and partnership,” said Robert Faletra, CEO of The Channel Company. “CRN’s Annual Report Card project gives solution providers an opportunity to provide their unique perspective on vendors’ offerings and partner programs, and in turn gives technology suppliers valuable, actionable feedback. I extend my sincerest congratulations to each of this year’s ARC Award winners—we look forward to celebrating them at this year’s XChange Conference in August.”

This year’s group of honorees was selected from the results of an in-depth, invitation-only survey by The Channel Company’s research team. More than 3,200 solution providers were asked to evaluate their satisfaction with more than 60 vendor partners in 22 major product categories. The winners will be honored throughout The Channel Company’s XChange 2017 conference, taking place August 13-15 in Kissimmee, FL.

The 2017 Annual Report Card results can be viewed online at and will be featured in the October issue of CRN. The Kaspersky Lab results can be found here.
