ABINGDON, England, October 15, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --
Kaspersky Lab today announced it has been positioned 52nd in this year's Sunday Times Barclays Top Track 250, a significant increase of 37 places from its listing in 2012. This jump up the league table of the UK's leading mid-market private companies is testament to Kaspersky Lab's impressive sales performance over the past year.
This growth has most recently been driven by significant product launches, including Kaspersky Endpoint Security for Business (a platform delivering tools and technologies to enable companies to see, control and protect endpoint devices) and Kaspersky Lab Internet Security - Multi Device (an easy, one license security solution to protect PCs, Macs, Android smartphones and tablets).
Beyond key product developments, the past year has also seen Kaspersky Lab continue to invest heavily in its threat research as part of its belief that everyone has the right to be free from cyber-security fears. As a result, the company has been responsible for discovering numerous cyber espionage campaigns, most recently 'Icefog', a small yet energetic Advanced Persistent Threat that focuses on targets in South Korea and Japan, hitting the supply chain for Western companies.
"With cybercriminals getting increasingly smarter, internet security technologies need to be one step ahead of them at all times," said Kirill Slavin, Managing Director for UK & Ireland, Kaspersky Lab. "Outpacing these individuals, and the ever-evolving cyber threat they are responsible for is something that Kaspersky Lab is committed to. We are extremely proud to be climbing up the Top Track 250 listing as we believe it is a result of customers increasingly recognising our protection solutions as the most effective, responsive and efficient around."
