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 [1]. 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... References [1]
