Dutch rejected the use of Kaspersky Lab AV

1 min read

Kaspersky Lab remains taboo with the central government. The Russian computer security company had asked the cabinet to change its mind, but Minister Ferd Grapperhaus (Justice and Security) sees no reason to do so.

The government banned Kaspersky’s antivirus software last year because Russia could use it to spy. The Cabinet advised companies that provide essential services or collaborate with the Ministry of Defense not to work with Kaspersky either.

That decision was not well founded and, due to the lack of rules that apply to everyone, gave the appearance of arbitrariness, Kaspersky believes. Moreover, the Russian company says it has since secured its software in such a way that the Europe no longer has to worry.

But the objections have not changed the opinions, he writes to the Lower House. He insists that the use of Russian antivirus software may compromise national security.
