And it sure looks like [Kaspersky] is driving a path to new-generation solutions for protection, which is what everybody is looking for.”

“I basically said to them, ‘What information do you have that you would never want the Russian government to have”” he said. “What does your law firm have to worry about a possible problem like the Department of Defense is worried about? What they’re worried about is not what you should be worried about. What they’re worried about is the fact that they can’t prove that they’re not taking the information, and Kaspersky wouldn’t be the product that it is if it [were] stealing all this information, because somebody would have caught them by now. They’re going to get caught if that’s what they’re doing.”
