  • The view from the top of the Kaspersky offices.

    Kaspersky is certainly on the up. Last year revenues rose 75 per cent and the company signed up 30 new OEM partners to take the total to 84. The outlook is good.

    "Sadly Moscow is becoming a very expensive city but we're not going to move," he said.
