In the United States banned the use of Kaspersky software

35
The ban on the use of Kaspersky Lab software products by government agencies is contained in the 2018 defense budget law for the fiscal year, which was signed on Tuesday by the US president, reports RIA News.




The document states that the ban on the use of Kaspersky software is valid from October 1 2017, that is, with the advent of the new fiscal year.

In September, the US Department of Homeland Security already imposed a similar ban. According to the agency, these programs can be used to damage the national security of the country. Now the ban is issued by federal law.

Previously, Kaspersky Labs, in response to a decision by the American authorities, stated that the company does not help any government in cyber espionage or aggressive online activities.

Recently, the laboratory also announced its intention to close its unit in Washington, because the task of Kaspersky Government Security Solutions was precisely the delivery of software to US government agencies. At the same time, the company maintains plans to open three new offices in Chicago, Los Angeles and Toronto in 2018.

      I use free Avast.
      The hypertrophied sense of digital neutrality does not allow supporting Kaspersky Lab. Let now think about domestic users.smile

        If Casper were a little more loyal to the Russians in the price range, maybe it would be worth taking a closer look at it. And so Dr. Web will go free.

          Kaspersky should not be so greedy in the Russian market. I almost said DOMESTIC. In the domestic one it would have to be softer with the price policy.

            The Russian market takes Kaspersky only 10%, the American market 25%.
            As for the ban, there are also Russian counterparts to many American services that can be safely blocked and supported by a domestic manufacturer.

              US market 25%.

              Moreover, the ban was introduced not for all 25% - but for government agencies in which he was probably not a monopolist. Well, he will suffer image losses, but coupled with that - he will not become poor and may still turn to his compatriot in another place, and not ... you know.

              and I even have WinRAR licensed,
              not to mention Kaspersky, Windows and everything else

              For work it is better not to save on licenses

              Already a story:

              Dmitry Medvedev signed a decree “On the establishment of a ban on the admission of software originating from foreign countries for the purpose of procurement to meet state and municipal needs”. The law comes into force on January 1, 2016.

              I’m personally, Russian, I’m living in Russia, her patriot, BUT! I do not use Kaspersky software. Here, Trump and I are unanimous. And not because I love Trump, but because for a pensioner Kaspersky is EXPENSIVE! Anestend?

                And Russian wholeheartedly - is it a swab and disgusting flag of German colors? Otherwise, there can be no Russian at all? I mean other people. We can not admire this coloring and swastikas - ala they are originally ours?

            It's okay, Casper has not yet closed the civilian sector in mattress, and there (in the mattress), as I understand it, people should be law-abiding and not looking for workarounds, loopholes to get software for free, it means that Casper will lose a little in its profit, well, think about it , from black to red caviar will have to go from Maybach to Merc.

        And I - hacked ESET. hi I’m wondering - what will the US defend instead of Casper now with? Is there really someone who “sat up” the Kaspersky Lab as a specialist in order to promote a certain software product at the state level? Tykzyzit "Business and nothing personal"? And the fact that it was possible to fit this into the concept of Russophobia is a passing phenomenon?

          They have their own craftsmen, no worse and no better.

          We also already many years ago introduced a ban on foreign software in the defense industry (I won’t say I don’t know about the civilian sector of government agencies), but here also the confrontation with Russia is on the agenda. We can say that they were a little late with the response wink

    Soon the congress of Russian nesting dolls will also ban caps with earflaps. Our "congressmen" are watching porn. It can be seen that potency has not yet been sat in soft chairs, and pin. They have nowhere to go for leisure, so they are fighting with windmills. Well, as they can.

    Trade war. Protect your domestic market, leaving a place for its manufacturer on it. It is a pity that everything with our operating system stalled, so their melkosoft could also be suspected of unreliability.

      In response, the use of Symantec, McAfee, ESET, Trend, Microsoft Antivirus should be prohibited. You can beat the capital only in rubles, or in dollars, as you like.

      There is such a rumor that any antivirus developer has a staff of programmers divided in half. One half writes viruses, and the second - actually "tablets" from them. wink

      This, admittedly, is true. At least we do not have our own OS, which would satisfy the requirements of a home user in terms of its convenience and capabilities.

        Swam, swim, in short everything is so !!!
        But when it was developed everything that is needed !!!
        To say that it was necessary to work, develop, still work and again develop !!!!
        Trite and basically can’t change anything !!! Since it turns out that it is necessary to work and develop ...... I would also like that there would be order in the country and everyone would get it on merit !!!
        It is clear that he did not say anything new, it seems to me that many will agree with me?
