The United States Commerce Department is set to ban new sales of antivirus software from Moscow-based Kaspersky Labs due to national security concerns. This follows a 2017 federal ban on the use of Kaspersky software and concerns about the Russian government potentially weaponizing the software. While Kaspersky claims its products are secure and not a threat to US security, the geopolitical climate and strategic risks posed have prompted this prohibition. This decisive action signifies heightened cybersecurity measures amidst deteriorating US-Russia relations and increasing control of the Russian tech sector by the Kremlin.
