About K7 Computing
A global leader in cybersecurity solutions, K7 Computing has more than 30 years’ experience in the industry and is a member of the prestigious Cyber Threat Alliance. K7 Labs is a world-renowned malware research centre that is the first discoverer of several malware and is the first winner of the RTTL Contributor Of The Year award from the Anti-Malware Testing Standards Organization.
K7’s cybersecurity solutions protect 25+ million users across 27 countries and have won many international awards from AV-Comparatives (Austria), AV-TEST (Germany) and Virus Bulletin (United Kingdom). Our portfolio of solutions secures the home, SOHO, mid-sized business, and enterprise segments.
Kesavardhanan J, or Keseven as he is known to his colleagues, founded a cybersecurity company in 1991 anticipating the digital revolution and the need to protect the benefits it would bring.
He also anticipated the need for efficient antivirus and wrote code that would ensure minimal impact on device performance. His approach was justified when testing agencies eventually began evaluating antivirus products by their impact on performance, and K7’s products regularly top their charts.
Keseven continued to expand on his vision, establishing the K7 Lab in 1998 to spearhead malware research and automating research and development processes to improve speed and reliability. He also pioneered the use of the FMCG model to distribute software in India.
Keseven also serves as the CEO of the Association of anti Virus Asia Researchers (AVAR) which fosters collaboration amongst international cybersecurity stakeholders to defeat emerging cyberthreats.
