For more than two decades, Kaspersky Lab has been offering the best security solutions to customers in pursuit of its mission to save the world. As the world has become more digitized and globalized, we have moved beyond the anti-virus laboratory to become a technology leader with an advanced and comprehensive portfolio of security solutions and services, including innovative products and technologies, cloud services and world-leading threat intelligence.
Today’s rebranding reflects that transformation. Their company name becomes simply ‘Kaspersky’, and their new mission: ‘building a safer world’, emphasizes their commitment to a trusted and transparent future where everyone has the endless opportunities technology brings, because they protect it.
The new branding reflects the evolution of their business focus from “cybersecurity” towards the wider concept of “cyber-immunity”. Since we are living in a world where technology connects us across platforms and borders like never before. They are at a cross section where humans and technology are collaborating to improve their lives. Cybersecurity in today’s world is consequently about more than just protecting devices, but developing an ecosystem where everything connected is protected. Kaspersky’s rebranding marks the company’s commitment to this evolution, and to leading the development of higher industry standards for the future. It also marks the company’s support for the creation of connected systems that are secure-by-design and no longer where security is only an optional add-on layer at the end.
As Kaspersky, with the mission of “Building a safer world”, the company will enable everyone to embrace, trust and use new innovations that are protected by its technologies.
New visual identity
As part of the rebrand, they have also updated their visual identity to reflect their core values and the essence of what Kaspersky stands for as an organization. The new logo is created from geometric and mathematically exact letter forms, representing the top class software engineering expertise that the company originated from and to which they remain committed. In line with the name change, they have also dropped the word ‘Lab’.
“The basis for our existing logo was developed in 1997 and many things have changed since then,” said Andrew Winton, vice president, marketing at Kaspersky. “Previously, we used letters from the Greek alphabet that are just not relevant anymore due to the changes in the breadth and depth of our communications – we need to look to the future and embrace the digital world. It seemed logical to remove the Lab from our name when we were developing the new visual identity – as we wanted to simplify our branding in a way that helps to deliver our newly inspired philosophy and mission, whilst still highlighting our company’s wide range of technologies.”
