Kaspersky has been named a Customers’ Choice all four years that the recognition has been acknowledged by Gartner.

Gartner Peer Insights is a free peer-review and rating platform designed for enterprise software and services decision-makers.

This aggregated peer perspective, along with the individual detailed reviews, is complementary to Gartner’s expert research and can play a key role in your buying process, as it focuses on direct peer experiences of implementing and operating a solution. In this document, only vendors with 20 or more eligible published reviews during the specified 18-month submission period are included. Reviews from end-users of companies with less than $50 million in revenue are excluded from this methodology.

Customers’ Choice

Kaspersky is the only vendor to be recognized as a Customers’ Choice every time Gartner has announced the recognition in the EPP market. When it comes to technical support, Kaspersky customers rated its EPP and EDR solutions 4.7/5.0 and 4.9/5.0 respectively on Gartner Peer Insights as of Dec. 1, 2021.

Kaspersky has also been recognized within the following Customers’ Choice category distinctions: Large Enterprise (1B – 10B USD), Mid-size Enterprise (50M – 1B USD), Public Sector, Government, Education, and Services. The company is also one of only two vendors recognized as a Customers’ Choice in the Finance Industry. As for the regional category, Kaspersky is one of only four vendors recognized as a Customers’ Choice in Europe, Middle East, and Africa regions.

Kaspersky believes that receiving the Customers’ Choice recognition is a testament to the company’s work constantly developing and upgrading solutions for businesses of various sizes.

As companies’ needs can be different depending on the maturity level of their IT and cybersecurity provision, we suggest having dedicated security frameworks that cover them all. Proven and reliable endpoint protection from Kaspersky Endpoint Security for Business at the Security Foundations framework level is fundamental for organizations of any size and infrastructure complexity.
