Kaspersky Lab, a leading developer of secure content and threat management solutions, has announced that it has been ranked among the Top 50 Most Innovative Companies worldwide by U.S. business magazine, Fast Company.
Kaspersky Lab took 32nd place in the ranking, ahead of many global giants of IT industry. Overall, Fast Company recognises 350-plus companies, including more than 75 non-US businesses.
Fast Company’s editorial team evaluated information on thousands of businesses across the globe to create the World’s Most Innovative Companies issue.
The end result is a package that dares to be different, emphasising not just revenue growth and profit margins, but also progressive business models and an ethos of creativity.
In its latest edition, Fast Company explains that Kaspersky Lab has been a magnet for Russia's young computer geniuses for a number of years.
It is this fact that has been a key driver in Kaspersky Lab’s rapid climb to become the world's fourth-largest anti-malware solutions provider.
“When the company was founded in 1997 with zero investment or external funding, we knew that innovation and quality were the only feasible ways to achieve international success,” comments Eugene Kaspersky, CEO and co-founder of Kaspersky Lab.
“The company’s success is the result of years of research work and constant innovation. It’s very nice to hear that the work of our specialists has received worldwide acclaim, not just from our customers and partners, but from independent experts too.”
“Innovation has never been more important to our economy and our future,” says Fast Company editor, Robert Safian. “These companies embody what unleashing human potential can accomplish.”
