On Tuesday, the cybersecurity firm said that "a number of core processes" will be shifted from Russian Federation, including customer data storage systems and processing "for most regions". The Transparency Center will showcase the history of Kaspersky Lab products and, by extension, the company's commitment to protection.

The transparency center will also host the company's "build infrastructure" that Kaspersky uses to assemble and manage its products. The Dutch Government announced a similar move this week.

By 2019, Kaspersky Labs will have an operational datacenter in Zurich that will underpin its business for customers in North America, Europe, Australia, Japan, South Korea, and Singapore.

The move follows controversy in the United States past year when the federal government removed Kaspersky from its list of approved vendors, weeks after senior USA intelligence agency and law enforcement officials expressed concerns about the safety of its software.

Russian security software company Kaspersky Lab has announced plans to shift some of its infrastructure from Russia to Switzerland as it looks to regain trust following allegations that it had ties with state-sponsored espionage programs in Russia.

The move is part of the company's "transparency initiative", which will also include third-party auditing of the company's software, processes and procedures.

The firm says this is part of its Global Transparency Initiative and that it will also open a Transparency Center in Switzerland this year.

"To ensure full transparency and integrity, Kaspersky Lab is arranging for this activity to be supervised by an independent third party, also based in Switzerland", the firm says.

The Russian antivirus vendor embarked on this initiative after the U.S. government has accused the company of working closely with Russian intelligence agencies.

Kaspersky's "software build conveyer" is a set of programming tools used to assemble ready-to-use software from source code. Before the end of 2018, Kaspersky Lab products and threat detection rule databases (AV databases) will start to be assembled and signed with a digital signature in Switzerland, before being distributed to the endpoints of customers worldwide.

"In a rapidly changing industry such as ours, we have to adapt to the evolving needs of our clients, stakeholders and partners", he said in a statement. "We believe these two qualities make Switzerland the ideal place to move part of our sensitive infrastructure".

Eugene Kaspersky, CEO of Kaspersky Lab, said the move will allow his firm to rebuild customer trust and deal with industry challenges.

"We believe such action will become a global trend for cyber security, and that a policy of trust will catch on across the industry as a key basic requirement".
