In the summer of 1991 Jayaraman Kesavardhanan took the first step in what would become the greatest journey he would ever undertake. He founded K7, India's first and exclusive anti-virus software company. In 1992 K7 Computing, spearheaded by Kesavardhanan, released the VX2000, the first ever DOS based anti-virus software. It proved to be a commercial success and went on to cement K7's position in the global anti-virus software industry. In 1994, K7 Computing released the Generic Decryption Engine - a tool that proved vital to combating the viruses prevalent at the time.
2003 would prove to be a pivotal year in the company's history. K7 signed a lucrative partnership with Japanese software giant Sourcenext, to sell the highly coveted K7 Virus Security Software. As one of Japan's fastest growing publishing companies, Sourcenext was perfectly posed to take K7 into the highly competitive international market - a market in which K7 has been a major player till date.
