No other cybersecurity provider has done anything as far reaching as this.
In opening the Center, Kaspersky takes a significant step towards becoming completely transparent about its protection technologies, infrastructure and data processing practices.

What is Transparency Center?

A dedicated facility to review the company's code, software updates, threat detection rules and other technical and business processes.

We provide the security information and infrastructure in the Transparency Center for consultation purposes only.

Any actions to modify the company’s source code, software updates, or threat detection rules are forbidden, and will be prevented by Kaspersky; any abuse will be reported to the local law enforcement agency.

Who can check the source code?

We welcome:

State agencies and regulators responsible for national cybersecurity and the protection of information systems (decreed as such by the respective local legislation);

Enterprise partners and customers of Kaspersky anywhere in the world.

Academia, media and information security community experts are being considered as potential invitees to the Transparency Center in the future.

Kaspersky Transparency Center

We invite government experts and enterprise clients to review the company's source code, software updates, and threat detection rules, and other technical and business processes

Kaspersky's experts will assist and provide any technical consultations on the company's source code and technologies

At the Transparency Center there are three options for independent assessment of Kaspersky products:

Government regulators and enterprise clients might request to:

  • Review our secure software development documentation, including threat analysis, secure review, and application security testing processes;

  • Review the source code of all Kaspersky on-premise products;

  • Review all versions of our builds and AV-database updates;

  • Rebuild the source code to make sure it corresponds to publicly available modules.


We follow the strictest access-policy practices and reserve the right to turn down a request if it could potentially cause a security breach.

Under no circumstances whatsoever will Kaspersky provide intelligence or law enforcement agencies that have a mandate and/or capability for cyber-offensive operations with access to the Transparency Center.
