Kaspersky Lab to open customer data centre in Switzerland by 2020

Share

The move is part of its global transparency initiative, which was first announced in October 2017, which it said "reflects Kaspersky Lab's ongoing commitment to assuring the integrity and trustworthiness of its products".

The Russian cybersecurity giant Kaspersky, desperate to regain trust after USA pushback against its alleged ties to Russian intelligence, is moving some of its key operations from Moscow to Zurich, Switzerland.

Software produced by Kaspersky has already been banned from USA government systems, and the company has been on a mission to prove that Russian Federation is not spying on other countries via its antivirus tools.

By 2019, Kaspersky Labs will have an operational datacenter in Zurich that will underpin its business for customers in North America, Europe, Australia, Japan, South Korea, and Singapore.

Kaspersky Lab has announced it is moving a number of its core processes out of Russian Federation and in to Switzerland as it looks to be more transparent.

The move will see customer data storage and processing and software assembly being moved to Switzerland too.

With Russia rarely out the headlines for its alleged role in election meddling, Kaspersky is now looking to distance itself from its domestic troubles by moving some of its data storage and processing infrastructure to Switzerland - a country often considered to have some of the strongest data privacy regulations in the world.

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

The Russian AV vendor has found itself at the center of a geopolitical storm after its products were banned for USA federal government use following reports that Russian intelligence used them to spy on targets.

Kaspersky Lab will also relocate to Zurich its "software build conveyer" - a set of programming tools used to assemble ready-to-use software out of source code.

"Storing [the Kaspersky Security Network data] in Switzerland under the supervision of an independent organization means that any access to this data is meticulously logged-and the logs can be reviewed at any moment should any concerns arise", Kaspersky said.

Kaspersky has repeatedly denied these allegations, but the company claims that it is working with others to "address growing challenges of industry fragmentation" and "a breakdown of trust".

Kaspersky said these plans will make sure that "newly assembled software can be verified by an independent organisation" and that "software builds and updates received by customers match the source code provided for audit".

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.
