Kaspersky is aware of the decision of the Department of the Treasury’s Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) to place members of the company’s executive and senior leadership team on the sanctions list. The current step will not affect the company’s resilience as neither Kaspersky nor its subsidiary companies nor its CEO were designated by the OFAC.

We regard the move as unjustified and baseless, being a continuation of recent U.S. government decisions based on the present geopolitical climate and theoretical concerns, rather than on a comprehensive evaluation of the integrity of company's products and operations. Neither Kaspersky nor its management team has any ties to any government, and we consider the allegations quoted by the OFAC as pure speculation, which lacks concrete evidence of a threat posed to U.S. national security. None of the listed members have any ties to the Russian military and intelligence authorities or have anything to do with the Russian government’s cyber intelligence objectives.

For over 26 years, Kaspersky has succeeded in its mission of building a safer future by protecting over a billion devices. Kaspersky provides industry-leading products and services to customers around the world to protect them from all types of cyber threats, and has repeatedly demonstrated its independence from any government. Additionally, Kaspersky has implemented significant transparency measures that are unmatched by any of its cybersecurity industry peers to demonstrate its enduring commitment to integrity and trustworthiness.

Kaspersky remains committed to protecting the world from cyberthreats. We look forward to what the future holds, and will continue to defend ourselves against actions that seek to unfairly harm our reputation and commercial interests.
