Addressing A Challenge

Kaspersky Lab has been dogged with the suspicion that it is in cahoots with the Russian government and helping implant malware throughout the internet.  Denials have done no good.  Now the company is taking steps to move some of its core processes to Switzerland, far away from Moscow.  That, plus a new transparency institute funded by the Lab, are intended to lower fears that Kaspersky is compromised.  While the move addresses the issue of proximity to Russia, it still doesn't answer the question whether the company has secret alliances with Putin's agents.  Only time can resolve that, and it may take years.  There is little a company can do when it is cast in the position that Kaspersky finds itself.
