Kaspersky Labs India operations will have Hyderabad as Hub

Russian anti-virus software and internet security solutions player Kaspersky Labs is planning to make Hyderabad the hub of its Indian operations with plans to pump in nearly $2 million this year in setting up a team of nearly 20 people this year and ramping it up to over 150 by next year.

Kaspersky, which set up a small office here earlier this year, is now mulling over plans to set up a virus lab, local R&D facilities as well as a call centre in the city, Kaspersky Labs Asia MD Harry Cheung said here on Tuesday.

Cheung said that though currently Kaspersky was operating in India through two distributors, the city-based Zoom Technologies and Pune based Sakri IT Solutions, in the long run it would like to take on the Indian market on its own.

The company is also planning to set up a nearly 100-people strong call centre here to cater to the Asia markets. Our main focus is on the consumer market and we are targeting nearly 2 million internet users this year with our anti-virus products and hope to increase this to 5 million users next year, said Cheung, explaining that the company was all set to unveil its low-cost anti-virus software KAV (Kaspersky Anti-Virus ) in India next month in the sub-Rs 500 price bracket.
