I have every confidence that Kaspersky Lab will go on to even greater success in the future, as we at the company know that it is essential to continue working hard to provide our customers with the very latest and most innovative IT security technologies.”
The official 17th awards ceremony took place earlier in May in Moscow, and brought together more than 200 business executives, politicians and entrepreneurs.
