Kasper­sky Lab will close its Wash­ing­ton DC of­fice that was sell­ing to the gov­ern­ment and keep work­ing with non-fed­eral cus­tomers in the US via its re­main­ing of­fices in the coun­try. The com­pany also com­mit­ted last Oc­to­ber to open its prod­uct's source code to an in­de­pen­dent third-party re­view and plans to open new of­fices in Chicago, Los Angeles and Toronto this year. The US had banned gov­ern­ment use of Kasper­sky soft­ware in Septem­ber last year, cit­ing founder Eu­gene Kasper­sky's al­leged ties to Rus­sian in­tel­li­gence and the pos­si­bil­ity of its prod­ucts func­tion­ing as "ma­li­cious ac­tors".
