Kasper­sky to shut Washington of­fice

The Hindu Business Line - - IT & TELECOM - BLOOMBERG

A Rus­sian soft­ware-maker,whose prod­ucts are banned for use in fed­eral in­for­ma­tion sys­tems by the US gov­ern­ment, is seek­ing to re­main in the North Amer­i­can mar­ket and prove its prod­ucts have no hid­den ca­pa­bil­i­ties. Kasper­sky Lab Inc will close its Washington D.C. of­fice that was sell­ing to the gov­ern­ment and will keep work­ing with non-fed­eral cus­tomers in the US via its re­main­ing of­fices in the coun­try, vice-pres­i­dent An­ton Shin­garev said in an in­ter­view in Moscow. Black­Berry Ltd and Qual­comm Inc are ex­pand­ing their part­ner­ship to tap the con­nected au­to­mo­tive mar­ket, the com­pa­nies said. Black­Berry, which has de­vel­oped soft­ware QNX Hyper­vi­sor 2.0 to run com­plex com­puter sys­tems in vehicles, said it would use Qual­comm's hard­ware in areas such as vir­tual cock­pit con­trollers, elec­tronic con­trol gate­ways and in­fo­tain­ment sys­tems.
