Kaspersky placed on the list of serious security threats in the United States

There is a general feeling that much of the supply from Russian companies could be compromised. The country has changed its rules and laws to adapt to the sanctions that have been applied globally.

One of the most recent measures came from the United States, which put the famous security software company Kaspersky on a list where no one wants to be. They began to consider the creator of the antivirus as a serious threat to the security of the country.

Safety list where they don't want to be

It's a well known list as it has been talked about and used to lobby in recent years. This is where several companies associated with China have been placed, preventing access to much of the technology and in particular to the American market.

The latest company to be added to this FCC list is Russian company Kaspersky, which has been called an "unacceptable risk to the security of the United States." It is the first company from this country to appear on this list that almost completely blocks its action in the United States.

Kaspersky has been banned from use in the United States

Being on this list puts Kaspersky in a very uncomfortable position vis-à-vis US companies and other entities. They can no longer use grants and other aid to purchase this security software.

This isn't the first time the company has encountered security issues in the United States. In 2017, it was used so that the Russian government could steal documents from the NSA, which was always rejected. Yet they have been banned from US government entities.

Situation that comes from the conflict of Russia and Ukraine

Of course, Kaspersky already reacted to this new position of the American government. They claim the FCC's decision was made too quickly and based on political assumptions related to the conflict in Ukraine. The company is willing to work with the US government to overcome identified concerns.

It was one of the most important companies in Russia. Many claim that she would be ready to help the government of her country in the conflict against Ukraine, which has been repeatedly rejected and denied by Kaspersky.
