Kaspersky Lab is the second fastest growing software company.

Kaspersky Lab, a leading developer of secure content management systems, has been included in the ratings list of the world’s leading software companies, called the Software Top 100.

The Software Top 100 is compiled by the respected independent Top 100 Research Foundation. Software companies were ranked according to their revenues based on software sales during 2008.

Revenue levels were calculated from the sales of licenses, subscriptions and support activities. Kaspersky Lab ranks 76th on the list and is the only Russian software company to be included in the Software Top 100.

Compared to 2007, the company achieved revenue growth of 177%, a near threefold increase in turnover for the period. This makes Kaspersky Lab the second fastest growing company after Google, with a 64% higher growth rate than its nearest rival.

According to the experts at Top 100 Research, if Kaspersky Lab sustains its present growth rate, it will rise from its current fourth place in the global ranking of antivirus vendors in the next few years.
