Company’s third code review center will be located at CyberSecurity Malaysia’s Office in Cyberjaya
In line with its drive towards building trust in the cybersecurity industry, Kaspersky has announced the opening of its first Transparency Center in Asia Pacific, in partnership with CyberSecurity Malaysia – Malaysia’s national cybersecurity specialist agency.
The company’s third code review facility will be located in Cyberjaya, alongside key cyber-related government agencies and companies in the country.
The new center is being opened as part of the company’s Global Transparency Initiative. Like its counterparts in Zurich and Madrid, the Transparency Center 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.
The new center, which will be open for visitors early next year, will also function as a briefing center where guests will be able to learn more about Kaspersky’s engineering and data processing practices.
“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 Center,” Eugene Kaspersky, CEO of Kaspersky commented about the opening. “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.”
The Global Transparency Initiative aims to address the growing demand from partners and government stakeholders for more information on how Kaspersky’s products and technologies work.
Since the company’s announcement in October 2017, Kaspersky’s Global Transparency Initiative has been demonstrating good progress.
