Kaspersky CEO Says He Never Worked with Russian Intelligence Agencies

Eugene Kaspersky, the founder of anti-virus software company Kaspersky Lab Company, said he was never working with Russian intelligence agencies on Tuesday, he would quit Russia if its intelligence agencies ever asked his company to spy for it.

The Kaspersky Lab products have been banned in the United State due to the Russia intelligence agencies incident, and Kaspersky is famous because of their anti-virus software in PC. The U.S. Department of Homeland Security has banned government agencies from using Kaspersky Lab software, after concluding that the company’s anti-virus software had been used to copy sensitive files with American secrets.

The company and Eugene Kaspersky have strongly denied they ever cooperated with Russian intelligence, but, they have said their software inadvertently copied files containing U.S. data.

“Never, never,” the founder told reporters at a media briefing at the company’s offices in London, when asked if Russian intelligence agencies had ever asked him to help spy on the West. “They have never asked us to spy on people. Never.”

CEO Eugene Kaspersky said accusations his software had been used by Russian spies to steal American secrets had caused the company’s revenue to decline in North America, but said it was still growing in other parts of the world. Kaspersky said his company’s revenues would top $700 million globally this year. But revenue in North America would be about 5 to 8 percent lower this fiscal year than last year as a result of the U.S. accusations, he said.

He expects Kaspersky European revenue to be flat year on year, while revenue in the rest of the world will continue to grow in double digits.

Kaspersky, who studied in a KGB institute in Moscow, once served as an engineer for Soviet military intelligence (GRU) before founding his computer security company in the years following the 1991 fall of the Soviet Union. He has repeatedly denied that he has done any favors for his former spy colleagues.

“If the Russian government comes to me and asks me to (do) anything wrong, or my employees, I will move the business out of Russia,” Kaspersky said in English. “We never helped the espionage agencies, the Russians, or any other nation.”

He said his products were aimed at “designed to stop attacks, to recognize malicious code, not to spy on our customers.”

IGN (formerly Imagine Games Network) is an American video game and entertainment media company operated by IGN Entertainment Inc., a subsidiary of Ziff Davis and wholly owned by j2 Global.

They fully affirmed the iPhone X bring progress: the iPhone X change is rather large, remove the face recognition, fingerprint to switch to remove the Home button to full screen, but also keep all advantages of on the iPhone 8. But IGN believes that the exorbitant prices also make people feel that these changes are only made to make changes.

IGN also says, the radicular price of iPhone X is enough to buy a nice laptop on the market, in addition, the same processor in iPhone 8 is not afford to lose in iPhone X. It’s just that the OLED 2436×1125 that supports HDR10 is the most eye-catching on the whole design, and the size of the whole machine is well suited to one-handed operation, but the presence of notch is also makes users feel unfordable in using.

Moreover, both the screen and the glass backboard have caused the iPhone X can’t be fallen on the flood. Otherwise, the overall change will allow the new iPhone X to adapt to a period of time.

The face ID is amazing and excellent by now, no matter you wear sunglasses, hat, or even the blurred face, iPhone X can catches the users face and unblock the device, though you may fail in the first time, it will never let you down in the second time. though the touch ID is quite quick, face ID is also never let you down in the speed and convenient level. iPhone X’s battery life is good, and wireless charging can be handy without having to mix it up, like AR camera in iPhone 8, facial perception brings a good use of Animoji in iPhone X.

Last but not least, IGN believes iPhone X is a stimulant to Apple’s iPhone products for years, while the powerful features usually mean fancy price, it’s better to be a luxury for those who can afford it, not a real necessity in normal life of everyone.
