Kaspersky Lab will shift infrastructure to Switzerland for customers outside of Russian Federation

Kaspersky Lab will shift infrastructure to Switzerland for customers outside of Russian Federation

The Dutch government said it had chose to phase out the use of anti-virus software made by Kaspersky Labs "as a precautionary measure" and was advising companies involved in safeguarding vital services to do the same.

The justice minister said he's also advising companies in key sectors such as energy or telecoms to not use Kaspersky Lab siftware, as well as those subject to defence contract requirements.

Kaspersky said more transparency centers are set to open in North America and Asia by 2020, but the company is not yet ready to disclose more details.

Kaspersky announced earlier today plans to move the user data of most of its customers to a "Transparency Center" in Switzerland, along with its "software assembly line". Through this initiative, the company promised to allow third parties to review the its source code and conduct independent reviews of its internal processes, as well as creating a trio of brick-and-mortar "transparency centers" to facilitate these reviews.

The Russian antivirus vendor embarked on this initiative after the USA government has accused the company of working closely with Russian intelligence agencies. Products other than anti-virus software from Kaspersky are not covered under the decision. The UK government followed suit, also warning companies from using Kaspersky products on systems that store sensitive data.

In April, Twitter banned Kaspersky from advertising on its platform, citing United States allegations of ties between the company and Russian intelligence.

Global transparency and collaboration for an ultra-connected worldThe Global Transparency Initiative, announced in October 2017, reflects Kaspersky Lab's ongoing commitment to assuring the integrity and trustworthiness of its products.

For its part, the Russian antivirus vendor is doing all it can to keep its name clean.

Users around the world voluntarily share information that is then aggregated in the vendor's threat intelligence cloud, Kaspersky Security Network.

As part of the move, the company's products and anti-virus threat detection rule databases will be assembled and signed with a digital signature in Switzerland, before being distributed to the endpoints of customers worldwide. By 2020, customers based in Europe will have data stored and processed in Zurich, rather than Kaspersky's data centres in Moscow. This supervision appears to extend beyond the move and into Kaspersky's future.
