Kaspersky Lab to Open Swiss Datacenter in Bid to Rebuild Trust

Kaspersky Lab to Open Swiss Datacenter in Bid to Rebuild Trust

The Dutch Government announced a similar move this week. The Transparency Center will showcase the history of Kaspersky Lab products and, by extension, the company's commitment to protection.

Something that caught our eye this morning is news that Kaspersky Lab will be moving some of its core infrastructure from Russian Federation to Switzerland.

Last October, the Moscow-headquartered company launched a worldwide transparency effort after the U.S. claimed that the company had given Russian security agencies backdoor access to secretive data.

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

Moscow-based Kaspersky Lab has confirmed plans to build a data centre in Switzerland in an effort to allay Western national security concerns about its anti-virus software.

By the end of this year, the production of its anti-virus software will be shifted to Zurich and a data centre will be built there next year where information on most non-Russian customers will be stored. This information is shared voluntarily by users with the Kaspersky Security Network (KSN) an advanced, cloud-based system that automatically processes cyber threat-related data.

The most important goal of our Global Transparency Initiative is to establish all reviewing processes in such a way that there will be no need to rely on our word alone about the integrity of our products, updates, detection rules, data storage, and things like that.

The company will also make available the source code of Kaspersky Lab products and software updates for review by responsible stakeholders in a dedicated Transparency Centre that would also be hosted in Switzerland and is expected to open this year.

In a statement, Kaspersky Lab said it would will relocate its "software build conveyer" - a set of programming tools used to assemble ready to use software from source code - to Zurich.

The vendor claimed that before the end of this year it would start to assemble and sign products and AV databases in Zurich before distributing them around the world.

"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.

"Transparency is one such need, and that is why we've made a decision to redesign our infrastructure and move our data processing facilities to Switzerland". With this new set of measures, Kaspersky Lab aims to improve the resilience of its IT infrastructure to any trust risk - even theoretical ones - and to increase its transparency to current and future clients as well as to the general public, the company adds.
