Kaspersky Lab solutions win VB100 award on Windows 7 platform

Kaspersky Lab, a leading developer
of secure content management solutions, announces that Kaspersky
Anti-Virus 2010 and Kaspersky Anti-Virus 6.0 for Windows Workstations
Release 2 have received the prestigious VB100 award following testing
conducted on a Windows 7 platform.

A total of 43 antivirus products, including solutions from the
leading vendors, participated in comparative testing conducted by the
