Kaspersky Lab opens its first Transparency Center

13 November marks the opening of Kaspersky Lab's first Transparency Center in Zurich, enabling authorised partners to access reviews of the company's code, software updates and threat detection rules, along with other activities.

Through the Transparency Center, Kaspersky Lab will provide governments and partners with information on its products and their security, including essential and important technical documentation, for external evaluation in a secure environment.

Switzerland is among the world's top locations in terms of the number of secure internet servers available, and it has an international reputation as an innovative center for data processing and high-quality IT infrastructure. Being in the heart of Europe and, at the same time, a non-EU member, it has established its own data privacy regulation that is guaranteed by the state's constitution and federal laws. In addition, there are strict regulations on processing data requests received from authorities.

Eugene Kaspersky, CEO Kaspersky Lab said:

"Transparency is becoming the new normal for the IT industry -- and for the cybersecurity industry in particular. We are proud to be on the front line of this process. As a technological company, we are focused on ensuring the best IT infrastructure for the security of our products and data, and the relocation of key parts of our infrastructure to Switzerland places them in one of the most secure locations in the world.

The promises made in our Global Transparency Initiative are coming to fruition, enhancing the resilience and visibility of our products. Through the new Transparency Center -- a first in the cybersecurity industry -- also in Switzerland, trusted partners and governments will be able to see external reviews of our products and make up their own minds.

We believe that steps such as these are just the beginning -- for the company and for the security industry as a whole. The need to prove trustworthiness will soon become an industry standard."


General Manager of ANZ, Margrith Appleby adds, "Privacy is a fundamental right for all businesses and consumers. Kaspersky Lab is a company that sits high on its values of fair dealing, customer protection and public safety. Our first transparency center is a program designed to build better trust in information security and we are proud to be leading this global initiative."
