Kaspersky Lab, a global cybersecurity solutions company headquartered in Moscow, Russia is operated by a holding company in the United Kingdom. The company celebrated its 20th anniversary last year. Kaspersky Lab’s solutions are designed to transform the company’s threat intelligence and security expertise into cybersecurity solutions and services to help protect businesses, critical infrastructure, industry, governments, and consumers around the globe.
Moving Forward Despite DHS Ban on Cybersecurity Solutions
In Autumn 2017, the US Department of Homeland Security (DHS) ordered federal agencies and departments to remove software sold by the Russia-based Kaspersky Lab, citing concerns that the company's alleged ties to the Russian government could present potential vulnerability to intrusion by Russian intelligence.
The order directed the federal government’s executive branch to identify all Kaspersky products then in use within 30 days and begin to phase these out entirely within 90 days.
The US government expressed concern about the possibility that Russian intelligence could access sensitive data and compromise systems using Kaspersky products, which are meant to guard against cyber intrusions. This prompted the company to beef up its Global Transparency Initiative and introduce a variety of new cybersecurity products and services, with more scheduled for release later in 2018.
