LONDON, October 13, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --
Kaspersky Lab today announced it has been positioned 44th in this year's Sunday Times Barclays Top Track 250, an increase of eight places from its listing in 2013. This jump up the league table of the UK's leading mid-market private companies is a testament to Kaspersky Lab's impressive sales performance over the past year.
The company's 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 'Tyupkin', a global attack targeting ATM machines, resulting in the theft of millions of dollars across Europe, Asia and Latin America.
"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 landscape is something that Kaspersky Lab is committed to when improving software, not only to protect people, but also giving them the understanding to fully protect themselves. We are extremely proud to be climbing up the Top Track 250 listing. We believe it indicates customers increasingly recognise our protection solutions as the most effective, responsive and efficient available."
