Kaspersky Lab at the frontline against cybercrime – 20 years after Cascade

As it celebrates its 20-year anniversary, global cyber security company Kaspersky Lab has seen one man’s mission grow into a global crusade against cyber crime. With innovation and vision at its heart, this year will see Kaspersky Lab take its fight to new heights – launching key initiatives such as the adaptive Kaspersky Security Cloud and the Kaspersky OS – to empower businesses and consumers to protect themselves from ever-evolving threats. From its Earth 2050 project, revealing what the future cyber threat landscape might look like, through to its Sound of Safety experiment, which investigates the sounds people associate with the feeling of safety, Kaspersky Lab remains one step ahead of criminals, and at the forefront of the cyber security industry.
In 1989, a young software engineer discovered that his computer had been attacked by the infamous Cascade virus. Fascinated by the challenge, he decided to detect the virus, analyze it and create software that could neutralize it. That engineer was Eugene Kaspersky and this is how the story of Kaspersky Lab – now a 20-year old business employing over 3,700 people – began.
Over its 20-year history, Kaspersky Lab has seen multiple changes to the threat landscape – as well as in the way people and organizations approach their security. The rapid proliferation of new technologies has meant that the computer Eugene first rescued from Cascade is obsolete, because like many others, he now uses multiple devices every day. But while our connectivity has enhanced our lives and changed them forever, our growing dependence on IT has also made cyberthreats a global problem.
Today, the Kaspersky Lab portfolio encompasses IT security solutions to suit a wide range of customers. These protect consumers, small companies, medium-sized businesses and enterprises from different types of threats and provide them with convenient tools to control and manage their security.
“My aim is to have each of our team contribute as much as he or she can – to become a part of something bigger. It’s beyond just having a job – it’s more about being an actively involved member of the Kaspersky Lab community,” Eugene Kaspersky.
