Kaspersky: CEO talks about banning software in the US

Kaspersky's annual revenue was $ 640 million in 2016. However, the security firm was in a difficult position when the USA decided on ban the use of software security of. As Eugene Kaspersky said, in fact, her move government it made no sense and that her accusations had no basis whatsoever.

At the time of the ban, the company had only $ 50.000 in transactions with the US government, an amount that CEO characterized it as "zero" in relation to the amount of money the government spent on congressional rallies on the ban.

The US ban

What was the reason for the ban?

"I think it's better to ask this question from the other side of the Pacific."

As Kaspersky told ZDNet, the company's software does not focus on performance, but it could detect threats coming from the state. He states that threats fall into two broad categories: Those who steal data and focus on espionage, and those who steal money, most likely from Criminals. As the company believes, the ability of the software to detect such threats and propose links between malicious source code and various organizations may be the reason the US government does not want to use this software, as it is likely to want to hide something.

After the software was banned by the US, the company noticed that its profits had increased in other parts of the world, to the extent that the damage was covered. And the partners who left Kaspersky in 2016 are starting to come back now, indicating that the business is starting to recover.

The company opened transparency centers in Zurich, at London and Bonn, providing clients with access to the source code and ensuring that data is stored in countries where it is legally protected. He noted that a new center will open in Sao Paulo, Brazil, but that opening there has been delayed as a result of its pandemic Mesures COVID-19.

The Russian internet

The geopolitical climate that led to the ban has changed in recent years. One of the emerging trends is that many countries, including Ρωσίας, seek to protect their overriding interests online. The so-called "Russian Internet" is one such initiative. But Kaspersky says he does not see this as an isolationist policy.

The possibility of Russia being disconnected from the Internet and set up its own home network is rather impossible. There are too many connections and their disruption will cost the country a great deal.
