WatchGuard and Kaspersky
Hi there !
Given the recent events in Ukraine and the cyber-attacks from Russia, a question arises about eventual links between WatchGuard and Kaspersky. Indeed, Kaspersky Labs mentions WatchGuard as a partner . It states that WatchGuard uses Kaspersky Anti-Virus SDK.
So, in my organization, we have some concerns about the fact that some WG products may use components whose supply is potentially under Russian control, therefore causing a high risk of supply chain attack.
The questions are then :
- How can we get sure no Kaspersky component is still in use on WG products ?
- Can WG guarantee this and provide evidences or ways to check for this ?
If we cannot get sufficient guarantee that it does not use any library originating from Kaspersky, we may consider withdraw all our WatchGuard products...
