Kaspersky Lab moving core systems from Russian Federation to Switzerland

Kaspersky also intends to relocate the tools used to assemble software to Zurich, and by the end of 2018, the company says that both Kaspersky Lab products and threat detection rule databases will begin to be assembled and signed off in the country.

Kaspersky Lab is moving core infrastructure from Russian Federation to Switzerland. The Swiss capital will also be the new site for the company's software assembly, and a new Transparency Centre aimed at dispelling fears that Kaspersky Lab software is being used for surveillance. USA lawmakers argue the company has ties to the Russian government.

Kaspersky Lab hoping to have the transition completed by the end of next year.

On Tuesday, the cybersecurity firm said that "a number of core processes" will be shifted from Russian Federation, including customer data storage systems and processing "for most regions".

Kaspersky Lab has announced it will open a new data center in Switzerland to handle all data for customers in key markets like Europe, North America and Australia in a bid to improve transparency and rebuild trust following a challenging year for the company.

Kaspersky, for its part, has repeatedly denied any involvement with the Russian government and in a bid to clear its name has offered up its source code, suggested testifying in front of congress and is even taking the United States government to court to have its side of the story heard.

After announcing the relocation plans, the firm said it understands that "trust is not given" and that it "must be repeatedly earned through transparency and accountability".

The move from Russian Federation comes months after the USA's Department of Homeland Security (DHS) issued an order that banned Kaspersky Lab products from being used by federal agencies. This supervision appears to extend beyond the move and into Kaspersky's future.

"This approach will further show that generation after generation of Kaspersky Lab products were built and used for one objective only: protecting the company's customers from cyber threats", the company statement said. Through this initiative, the company promised to allow third parties to review the its source code and conduct independent reviews of its internal processes, as well as creating a trio of brick-and-mortar "transparency centers" to facilitate these reviews.
