Kaspersky has been acknowledged as a Derwent Top 100 Global Innovator™ 2020 in the Software category, in line with top IT industry leaders for the second consecutive year. The annual report from Clarivate Analytics, a global leader in providing trusted insights and analytics to accelerate the pace of innovation, identifies the world’s most innovative organizations, which successfully develop valuable patented inventions that also have strong commercialization potential based on market reach and impact on other downstream inventions.
Kaspersky has been included in the Derwent Top 100 Global Innovator 2020, together with the other well-established companies, which includes the likes of Amazon, Facebook, Google, Microsoft, Oracle, Symantec, and Tencent. Driven by its mission of ‘building a safer world’, Kaspersky has contributed significantly to the cybersecurity industry by constantly developing and patenting new IT security technologies. Over the years, the company has become a technological leader with an advanced and comprehensive portfolio of security solutions and services working on state of the art technologies that are unique for the market, that protect home users and large corporations, governments, industry, and infrastructure.
As of 2019, Kaspersky has a portfolio of nearly 900 patents granted in Russia, USA, Europe, China, and Japan. Among the most notable recent inventions are developments in the field of endpoint detection and response (EDR) and security information and event management (SIEM) systems, the use of machine learning technologies and Sandbox technology (a patent for a system and method of analysis of files for maliciousness in a virtual machine). These and many other patented technologies are implemented in Kaspersky solutions, such as Kaspersky Anti Targeted Attack (KATA), Kaspersky Endpoint Detection and Response (KEDR), Kaspersky Industrial Cybersecurity for Nodes and other products.
As a result of driving constant innovation and implementing new technologies and solutions, Kaspersky remains one step ahead of its competitors and the company’s solutions continue to be the most tested, and most awarded, in independent tests and reviews.
“Kaspersky devotes ample attention to patenting as part of its innovative development strategy and has steadily built a solid portfolio of protection for its innovations, with the company being honored as one of the ‘Top 100 Global Innovators’ for the second year in a row. It was the winning combination of Kaspersky’s mission, strategy, and talented team that paved the way to achieving such a high rating. We will continue to support our researchers in developing their ideas to widen the scope for patented invention, and therefore bringing more innovation and presenting the best in class technologies and solutions. I’m sure these will then become leaders in various ratings,” said Nadezhda Kashchenko, Deputy Chief Legal Officer, Chief Intellectual Property & Antitrust Officer, Kaspersky.
Eugene Kaspersky, CEO of the company, said: “It’s a great honor to be named a Derwent Top 100 Global Innovator for the second year in a row, along with the other industry leaders. I want to thank our best-in-class researchers for their constant innovations and our legal team that works hard to protect our technologies and obtain patent rights across multiple regions. And as our business focus moves from ‘cybersecurity’ towards the broader concept of ‘cyber-immunity’, we’ll keep on leading in innovation and the development of higher industry standards for the future.”
“The relentless pace of global ideation means competition among innovators is intensifying, and staying at the top is getting harder,” said Jeff Roy, President, IP Group, Clarivate Analytics. “We congratulate the Top 100 Global Innovators for building a culture of generating new ideas, consistently creating new value from ingenuity, and delivering excellence in research and intellectual property creation.”
Now in its ninth year, Derwent Top 100 Global Innovators utilizes editorially enhanced, authoritative and accurate patent data from Derwent World Patents Index™ (DWPI) and Derwent Patent Citations Index™ (DPCI) to track innovation based on four indicators:
- Volume: The organization must have had at least 100 granted inventions (and more than 500 filed in total) in the past five years.

- Success: A high ratio of success in obtaining patent grants.
- Globalization: The level of investment of a patent applicant in their invention, as tracked via the process of pursuing protection in all four of the key market patent offices of China, Europe, Japan, and the United States.
