It has been recently reported that the FBI is recommending that private companies cut ties with Kaspersky. Our clients are seeing this news as well and are asking us what we are doing about it. We currently use KAV for our clients. I will be reviewing our options with our Customer Success Advocate, but I was wondering if Kaseya has any official response to this news and what other MSPs are doing in response to this. Here are some sample articles:
We received an official statement from Kaseya a few months ago when we requested one. During the last 2 months we have been testing other AV solutions for our due diligence. After this latest round of paranoia we are looking at an immediate transition....unfortunate for Kaspersky.
What statement did you get from them?
Tim, what do you mean with the immediate transition?
PJorritsma - We are moving to an alternate AV solution
dkunkle - I have added the statement to my "files" under my profile. Let me know if you are not able to access
I would also like to access the statement. We currently use KES for our systems.
Anyone have further information about the 2018 National Defense Authorization Act that was just signed tuesday?
