Kaspersky opens first Asia Pacific cyber security ‘transparency’ centre Featured

By

Global security giant Kasperksy has announced the opening of its first Transparency Centre in the Asia Pacific region, to be hosted by CyberSecurity Malaysia – Malaysia's national cyber security specialist agency.

The company's third code review facility will be located at Cyberjaya, alongside key cyber-related government agencies in Malaysia.

Kaspersky says that like its counterparts in Zurich and Madrid, the Transparency Centre in Malaysia will serve as a trusted facility for the company's partners and government stakeholders to come and check the source code of Kaspersky's solutions.

And the new centre will also function as a briefing centre where guests will be able to learn more about Kaspersky's engineering and data processing practices.

Kaspersky says government regulators and its enterprise clients can request to review the company's solutions and services including threat analysis, secure review, and the application security testing process.

They can also review the source code of Kaspersky's flagship consumer and enterprise solutions — Kaspersky Internet Security (KIS); Kaspersky Endpoint Security (KES), and Kaspersky Security Centre (KSC) — which is a console for the company's business products.

And stakeholders can also review all versions of Kaspersky's builds and AV-database updates as well the information the company processes such as data feeds from Kaspersky products that are sent to the cloud-based Kaspersky Security Network (KSN).

Kaspersky says access to the Transparency Centre is available on request, with more information on how Kaspersky Transparency Centres work available on the website.

Kaspersky chief executive Eugene Kaspersky said: "It's great to be here in Kuala Lumpur - in the heart of the Asia-Pacific region - to announce the opening of our third Transparency Centre”.

“Here we intend to show customers and government stakeholders that our products are 100% trustworthy and ensure the highest level of cybersecurity protection. The launch also proves that the activities we planned under our pioneering Global Transparency Initiative remain on track."

Stephan Neumeier, managing director for Asia Pacific at Kaspersky said, "We are excited to unlock the doors of this digital hub to let users experience the services and capabilities of Kaspersky's cybersecurity technology here in our region”.

“As a paradigm shift for the cybersecurity industry, this facility - the first in the region - will be located at the centre of the future cybersecurity hub in Cyberjaya, all thanks to the kind cooperation of CyberSecurity Malaysia.

“We are grateful for their trust and commitment towards us as this third-party validation proves that private companies and public agencies can team-up to better protect users from cybercrime."

Dr. Amirudin Abdul Wahab, chief executive of CyberSecurity Malaysia said, "As the threat landscape continues to evolve in Malaysia and in the region, we believe that it is crucial for private companies such as Kaspersky and government agencies to build trust and mutual cooperation. Kaspersky's willingness to open their doors and data processes further shows that they have nothing to hide.

“As a third-party entity, we also share their insights and concerns to make the cyber security industry better. We really hope that our partnership will be an example for more governments and private entities in exercising fairness and transparency for the benefit of our citizens and the cyber security industry.”
