Highest transparency and reliabilityIn 2018, Dominic Trott, then Associate Research Director – European Security at IDC, a well-known research and consulting firm, wrote that Kaspersky "has outperformed other major security vendors".
In 2017, Kaspersky launched its Global Transparency Initiative in consultation with national regulators (especially the UK, which is home to Kaspersky's holding company). As part of this, the company's digital infrastructure has been migrated to Switzerland, but specially designed Transparency Centers allow government regulators, corporate partners and customers to review (and compile it to make sure it matches the products on the market) the company's product source code, software updates, malware detection rules, and also technical and business processes (this has already happened more than 20 times). You can find more information about the initiative and other measures taken under it, which are actually launching a new trust standard in the IT sector, as well as information on applying to visit the Transparency Center at https://www.kaspersky.com/transparency-center.

In December 2021, Kaspersky announced the opening doors to new Transparency Center in North America

Ransomware protection from different products. “Completely blocked” means that ransomware was detected, and all user files were protected. “Partially blocked” means that ransomware was detected, but some user files were lost (not protected).
"Kaspersky offered a high level of protection against all ransomware attacks in our tests. It clearly outperformed the other reviewed products. Regardless of whether we're speaking about Revil or Ryuk or Conti – none of them was effective and able to perform the malicious actions when Kaspersky was protecting the system," says Andreas Marx, CEO, AV-TEST.
