In November, Kaspersky Lab, the company specializing in cybersecurity, opened its first Transparency Center in Zurich. According to the representatives of the company, the Swiss Center will process all the threat-related files received from the users on the territory of Europe. Zurich was chosen due to the fact that Switzerland is among the world’s leaders when it comes to the number of safe internet servers. The management of the company made a decision to process all the suspicious data provided by the European internet users only in the two data centers situated in Zurich.
“In a rapidly changing industry such as ours we have to adapt to the evolving needs of our clients, stakeholders and partners. Transparency is one such need, and that is why we’ve decided to redesign our infrastructure and move our data processing facilities to Switzerland. We believe such action will become a global trend for cybersecurity, and that a policy of trust will catch on across the industry as a key basic requirement”
