Kaspersky Lab caught in 'close tides' with FSB
The media managed to find out that the company carried out a number of orders for the special services, although Kaspersky Lab denied contacts.
Kaspersky Lab has much closer working contacts with the FSB than the company would like to show off, Bloomberg Businessweek, which had electronic correspondence of company with intelligence agencies, wrote.
In particular, it follows from the letters that the company was fulfilling the FSB order for security technologies, and also led several joint projects, which were previously held back. In addition, employees of Kaspersky Lab actively provide technical support to special services.
The magazine mentioned as an example the project, implemented for the FSB, on the massive introduction of products to secure from DDoS attacks.
Kaspersky Lab commented on the information, saying that the only purpose of the company's work with law enforcement agencies around the world is to combat cybercrime, and it does not have any 'close tides' with the FSB.
Recall that earlier Kaspersky Lab head of the computer incident investigation department Ruslan Stoyanov was arrested on suspicion of a state treason.
In early November 2017, Basmanny Court of Moscow has satisfied the motion brought by the Main Investigations Directorate in the City of Moscow of the Investigative Committee of the Russian Federation (ICR) and remanded Aleksander Shukyurov, Director of the Capital Renovation Directorate State Budgetary Institution of Moscow, in custody. The head of the institution subordinate to the Department of Capital Renovation of the City of Moscow that had acted as the client in tenders worth dozens of billions of rubles is suspected of swindling on an especially large scale.
