Kaspersky Lab Is Top Security Software Provider In Tech Track 100

ABINGDON, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwire - Sept. 23, 2010) - Security software provider Kaspersky Lab has been placed 18th in its debut appearance in the Sunday Times Microsoft Tech Track 100. The high placement is a result of Kaspersky Lab's 93 per cent growth rate over the past three years, making it the only IT security software developer in the list.

Kaspersky Lab's high levels of growth have seen its turnover rise from £29m in 2006 to £210.5m in 2009. This success is demonstrated by its position as second most profitable company out of all of those in this year's Sunday Times Microsoft Tech Track 100. 

"As our first appearance in the Sunday Times Microsoft Tech Track 100, this is a great result. The anti-virus market in the UK is very crowded, with many users often sticking with what resides on a PC or laptop at point of sale. Under these circumstances, Kaspersky Lab has grown very quickly, a result of the innovation and quality behind our technology," explains Malcolm Tuck, managing director of Kaspersky Lab UK. "Our goal is to appear in next year's list, and the new additions to our product portfolio in the coming months will help achieve this." 

As well as producing internet security and anti-virus software, Kaspersky Lab also develops mobile phone security software and hosted security solutions. The company provides secure content and threat management solutions for small businesses and enterprises as well as solutions for the consumer and SOHO market.
