Kaspersky Lab Climbs up Top Track 250 Leader Board

October 15, 2013

ABINGDON, England, October 15, 2013 /PRNewswire/ –

Kaspersky Lab [http://www.kaspersky.co.uk ] 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
[http://www.kaspersky.co.uk/business-security/endpoint-select ] (a platform delivering
tools and technologies to enable companies to see, control and protect endpoint devices)
and Kaspersky Lab Internet Security – Multi Device
[http://www.kaspersky.co.uk/multi-device-security ] (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
[http://www.kaspersky.co.uk/internet-security-center/threats/cybercrime ]. 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 [http://www.kaspersky.co.uk ]. “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.”
