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 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.
