Kaspersky Lab to open customer data centre in Switzerland by 2020

Kaspersky to make life easier for partners with transparency plans

The Russian firm has said it will relocate "a number of core processes" in the move, including customer data storage and processing for a number of its biggest regions, including the USA and UK.

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.

"Before the end of 2018, Kaspersky Lab products and threat detection rule databases (AV databases) will start to be assembled and signed with a digital signature in Switzerland, before being distributed to the endpoints of customers worldwide".

Zurich will also become home to the company's so-called "software build conveyer", a set of programming tools that can be used to create easily deployable software.

"This approach will further show that generation after generation of Kaspersky Lab products were built and used for one goal only: protecting the company's customers from cyber threats", the company statement said.

Turkish PM says U.S. and Israel partners in crime against humanity
Monday, may 14, in the region are continuing mass protests of the Palestinians. Various injuries received 2.4 thousand protesters.

One of the easy attacks to make against Kaspersky Labs has been to focus on its Russian heritage and then raise questions of trust and regardless of whether it has any validity it has made an impact on brand association.

The transition of systems and data will be overseen by an unnamed independent third party that is based in Switzerland. Products other than anti-virus software from Kaspersky are not covered under the decision.

Kaspersky Lab plans to move core components of its infrastructure from Russian shores to Switzerland.

The allegations that surfaced previous year suggested Kaspersky had built backdoors into its security software, enabling Russian intelligence agencies to spy on the U.S. Following an audit, it was found that around 15 percent of U.S. agencies had traces of Kaspersky Lab software on their machines, leading President Donald Trump to ban use of Kaspersky Lab software within the U.S. government. This supervision appears to extend beyond the move and into Kaspersky's future. "Since transparency and trust are becoming universal requirements across the cybersecurity industry, Kaspersky Lab supports the creation of a new, non-profit organisation to take on this responsibility, not just for the company, but for other partners and members who wish to join", Kaspersky added.
