Thus far, the dialogue has been positive, according to Stephan Neumeier, the company's Asia Pacific managing director, who, along with Anton Shingarev, vice-president of public affairs and head of the CEO Office, gave a presentation in Sydney on Tuesday.
The 40-minute presentation mostly dealt with details of the company's decision to establish a Swiss Transparency Centre to avoid the constant allegations of spying from Western nations.
Kaspersky's software was banned from use by US public sector agencies last year, following reports that Russia had exploited its software to spy on customers and obtain malware created by the NSA.
Neumeier and Shingarev detailed the issues faced by the company, outlining why, in their opinion, the US and other countries had started what amounts to a campaign to prevent the company from doing business in those countries.
Kaspersky also ran a webinar a few weeks ago entitled The Cyber Security Future Summit – Adapting to an ultra-connected world – Adapting to an ultra-connected world, hosted by BBC presenter Angela Lamont and company officials.
In June 2015, the head of Kaspersky Lab, Eugene Kaspersky, revealed that the company had won a contract to become the information security provider for the Department of Prime Minister and Cabinet.
The Australian Government has said in the past, when asked, that it is not making any recommendation on the use or otherwise of Kaspersky products.
