ABINGDON, England, December 3, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --
Kaspersky Lab's CEO and co-founder, Eugene Kaspersky, has been voted
Technology Hero of the Year in the third annual V3 technology awards. This is
considered a massive achievement due to the award being presented to no other
than the late Apple CEO, Steve Jobs in 2011.
Voted for by V3 readers, this prestigious award recognises Eugene's huge
impact on the security industry over the past 15 years since Kaspersky Lab was
founded. From Flame to Madi, inspiring leader Eugene has been at the
fore-front of all of the company's ground-breaking malware discoveries and
offered his expert advice to businesses and consumers alike.
"Our malware discoveries are dedicated to making the online world a safer
place, so it's great to see the appreciation by winning this award", explains
Eugene Kaspersky. "Being recognised as Technology Hero of the Year is an
amazing achievement for not just myself, but Kaspersky Lab as a company due to
the time and commitment spent on fighting cybercrime both before it occurs and
Eugene fought off competition from the likes of Marco Ahtisaari, Head of
Design at Nokia and Simon Stanford, VP Telecommunications and Networks at
Samsung UK and Ireland, who were also shortlisted for the award.
Kaspersky Lab also scooped the highly sought after Best Mobile Management
Software award for its universal security solution, Kaspersky ONE. In this
