Jerusalem to host new Kaspersky Lab R&D center


2015 will see anti-virus software giant, Kaspersky labs, open a development centre in Israel. This will be one of few such centres outside of Russia, a landmark event.

The centre will initially employ six workers, with the number of employees expected to increase over time. The announcement of the centre’s opening follows the successful establishment of a sales, business development and customer service office in Tel Aviv last year.

The centre “will be established as part of the joint Jerusalem municipality- Jerusalem Development Authority Jnext initiative. The Jnext program aims to encourage and support technological initiatives in the city, international start-ups, and young high-tech and biomed companies, through various benefits and grants.” (Globes 2014)
