Calculate your company's security profile
This is the ultimate guide to the cost of IT security. Select the details that match your company to see the average budgets your industry peers spend on IT security (by region, industry, size), what security measures they take, the major threat vectors they encounter, how much money they lose as a result, and what you can do to avoid being compromised. The Calculator has been created as an adjustable tool. The data presented can be updated and/or added to over time based on insights from customers and Kaspersky Lab.

Recommendations

With more than 20 years' experience of observing malware as it has evolved from hacktivism to advanced threats, we believe that the security platform of the future is not just about prevention. While your security strategy should be built upon the firm foundation of a multi-layered defense solution, it is important to have a holistic approach - detection, response and prediction. Complex threats are detected by a stack of technologies – collecting data from the network and all types of endpoints, and then processing it with sandbox analysis, event correlation, anomaly detection etc. Threat intelligence is crucial for a modern enterprise security strategy. It is very important to gather as much data as you can. That's why Machine Readable Threat Intelligence is essential to enrich your Security Operation Center.
