Kaspersky will open customer data centre in Switzerland by 2020

Kaspersky Lab to open customer data centre in Switzerland by 2020

"The data of our customers from the US, Europe, Japan, Korea, Singapore and Australia will henceforth be stored and processed in Switzerland".

It is possible the move could be derailed by the Russian security services, who might resist moving the data centre outside of their jurisdiction, according to people familiar with Kaspersky Lab and its relations with the Russian government.

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 new measures comprise the move of data storage and processing for a number of regions, the relocation of software assembly and the opening of a Transparency Centre.

"Our new center in Switzerland will strengthen the proven integrity of Kaspersky Lab's products, significantly improve the resilience of our IT infrastructure to any trust risk - even theoretical ones, and increase our transparency to current and future customers, as well as the general public", the written comment by the company's press service for Sputnik reads.

Alves out of World Cup as Neymar nears return
Brazil starts its World Cup campaign against Switzerland on June 17, followed by Costa Rica and Serbia in Group E. Alves , who has been capped 107 times for his country, had been considered a certainty for selection.

This move is a part of a larger plan that the company had announced in October 2017, called the Global Transparency Initiative. The move is part of the company's Global Transparency Initiative which came in response to concerns about ties to the Russian government.

Earlier this month, the Dutch government said it would phase out the use of anti-virus software made by Kaspersky and advised companies that supplied critical services to follow suit. Kaspersky has refuted the claims. 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.

Zurich will also become home to the company's so-called "software build conveyer", a set of programming tools that can be used to create easily deployable software.

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.

Killed As Taliban Militants Storm Farah City
Local reporters said the city was empty and shops, schools and government offices are closed as people hid inside their houses. Deadly clashes re-erupted in Farah early morning as the Taliban launched a second round of coordinated assaults in the week.

By the end of 2018, the firm's security products and threat detection rule databases will be assembled and signed with a Swiss digital signature. The relocation will ensure that all newly assembled software can be verified by an independent organization, and show that software builds and updates received by customers match the source code provided for audit.

Russian anti-virus firm Kaspersky Lab said on Tuesday it was moving its core infrastructure and operations to Switzerland after being accused by Western authorities of helping the Russian government to spy on its users.

Kaspersky Lab is arranging for the data storage and processing, software assembly, and source code to be independently supervised by a third party qualified to conduct technical software reviews.
