The Russians are coming!

but in a good way... Kasperski, the leading Russian IT sec company has faced long standing criticism that they might help the Kremlin with backdoors and the like. To counter those claims do they now move their headquarter to Zurich and will use independent audits in CH.

Re: The Russians are coming!

In a good way? ROFL.

<<sieht sich mit Vorwürfen konfrontiert, der russischen Führung mit einprogrammierten "Hintertürchen" bei der Spionage zu helfen.>>
(are accused of helping the Russian leadership with spying by programming backdoors into their software)

and: the software-developpment will stay in Russia.

So some Swiss company should take any further responsibility? As if there is a problem, they just didn't controll well enough?

Reminds me of the announcement, some Swiss laboratory said it was not a Russian virus .....
Yeah, they're obviously coming - after us.

Any serious Swiss copany keeps well away from that deal.

Re: The Russians are coming!

I am laughing every time when the West is pointing fingers at the Russians in that area. As if Snowden never happened... we know now for years that western services don't need backdoors anymore but simply spy on everything regardless of privacy and other laws. (And before that time did Windows have a variable called "_NSAKEY"...)


Kasperski will create jobs in Zurich and I think its good for the city as an IT hub. No, they wont develop in Zurich. I would not pick the most expensive place to do that either...

That, exactly.

And the Swiss neutrality is why they're coming here, and not to Berlin, London or New York.

Accused. Without an iota of proof whatsoever....

As usual. I have no idea what the accusations are based on and whether there is proof.
But I do know that in business this is deadly, so unless to a social worker I would not advise to take them on as a client.
