Client Security Software (Firewall, Antispam, Antivirus): Kaspersky Lab
CEO: Eugene Kaspersky
Kaspersky recaptured the crown in 2012 that it lost to Sophos last year. And, oh, how the mighty fell: Sophos, despite a sky-high 106.2 in product quality and reliability, came in third place out of six vendors. Sophos also posted top scores in richness of product features/functionalilty (98.7) and (product) technical innovation (97.3), but Kaspersky managed to win the product innovation subcategory overall, as well as the other two: support and partnership.
