"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years.

Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Can't test it since I don't have Kaspersky, but this should work:
@echo off
for /f "delims=" %%a in ('wmic.exe /Node:localhost /Namespace:\\root\SecurityCenter2 Path AntiVirusProduct Get displayName /Format:List ^| find.exe "="') do (
	for /f "tokens=1,2 delims==" %%w in ("%%a") do (set %%w=%%x)
echo Kaspersky: '%displayName%'
