Kaspersky COO Eugene Buyakin didn't mince words: Kaspersky will unseat Trend Micro as the No. 3 endpoint security vendor in 2011. Buyakin said Kaspersky has made a steady climb to reach that position. Its preliminary market share hit 7.5 percent in 2010. So far, Trend Micro hasn't released its 2010 numbers.
"We are winners. We like to win. We like the challenge. We like to compete," Buyakin said, later adding, "We do want to become clearly the No. 3 player in this industry [in 2011]."
