Why Trimp and US is so imposing and forceful against Kaspersky AV?
Is it a political problem or a business one?
Probably the combination of:
- Kaspersky recognized as winner in EndPoint Security Category in The Channel Company’s CRN®2016
- Kaspersky being at thirth in Annual Revenues (650 M$) is just after the 2 only US companues: Symantec (4.000M$) and McAfee (2.000M$)
- Dr. Web (other Russian company providing AV, having 1M$ revenues) is not involved at all
it could explain is not a political problem but a business one: Trump would like to protect US business, banishing Kasperky.
