What we do for the world’s cybersecurity

The essentials from Kaspersky’s Sustainable Development Report for the year 2021 and the first half of 2022.


For 25 years we have been enabling people’s security in the digital world. We develop a wide range of protective solutions for both private users and large industrial enterprises. We develop educational products — from those teaching the basics of cybersecurity, to training courses for highly-skilled developers. We also work on Cyber Immunity — an approach aimed at constructing digital systems in such a way that carrying out a cyberattack would cost more than the amount of possible damage or profit to the attackers. Our own operating system — KasperskyOS — is built on this security-by-design principle, and has already proven helpful in the protection of the Internet of Things and smart cities.

Let us share some of our main accomplishments with you.
