Kaspersky Lab introduces free Antivirus Software

Kaspersky Lab introduces free Antivirus Software

The Kaspersky Lab launched a free version of its antivirus globally. Kaspersky free was immediately available in Canada, the US and many Asia Pacific countries and in the coming months would launch in other regions, the company founder, Eugene Kaspersky, wrote in a blog post.

The free version was not planned to replace the paid version of antivirus software, Kaspersky said. Describing it as offering “the bare essentials”, such as web antivirus protection and email and automatic updates.

The free antivirus software would provide advantages to all users of Kaspersky’s’ lab by improving machine learning across its products, he said.

The firm has been working on Kaspersky for 18 months, a development phase that included pilot versions in many markets including Ukraine, Russia, China and Scandinavian countries.

Kaspersky Lab founded in 1997, grew rapidly through the 2000s to become one the best antivirus software firms. But the company is suspicion for its relations with Federal Security Service (FSB) of Russia.

Objections about the firm have started in the US in recent years because of decline in the Russia-US ties following Russia’s attack of Crimea in 2014 and in 2016 when the US intelligence concluded that Russia had hacked the 2016 presidential election of the US.

The Russia denies the allegations of hacking and Kaspersky has also repeatedly denied it has any relation with any government, saying the accusation against it lacks evidence.

FBI agents visited the homes of Kaspersky employees last month as part of counterintelligence probe, and the Trump administration took steps to remove the company from the list of approved companies who sell technology to federal government agencies. A bill in the Congress that would stop the Department of Defense from the products of Kaspersky.

Privately held Kaspersky said its US revenue, most of which comes from selling antivirus to small business and consumers, dropped from $164 million in 2014 to about $156 million in 2016.
