Kaspersky Lab, a leading developer
of secure content management solutions, has been named among the top
four vendors of security solutions for endpoint users worldwide in an
annual report by IDC.
The company was rated fourth in the IDC rating Worldwide Endpoint
Security Revenue by Vendor, 2008. The rating was published in the IDC
report Worldwide Endpoint Security Market 2009-2013 Forecast and 2008
Vendor Shares. The report ranked software vendors according to earnings
from sales of endpoint security solutions in 2008.
When compiling the rating, the experts at IDC analyzed information
on over a thousand major software vendors. Kaspersky Lab was the only
Russian company to be named among the leaders, and demonstrated the
highest growth in year-over-year earnings – 102.5% – well above the

“For over 12 years, Kaspersky Lab has given priority to maintaining
the superior quality of its products, providing effective protection to
users and building up a global network of loyal partners. I am
delighted to see that our business strategy and philosophy have proved
their long-term effectiveness and made our company a major player in
the IT security market. The latest report from IDC, the highly
reputable research and analysis company, has given due credit to
Kaspersky Lab’s success. We are sure Kaspersky Lab still has
considerable potential for growth and we are pursuing ever more
ambitious goals which, I hope, will be recognized in future reports by
