Kaspersky has been refuting claims that it is vulnerable to influence from the Kremlin, and claims the U.S. government deprived it of its rights to due process with the ban.
At one point, Kaspersky offered to hand over source code for its products to independant entities to ensure that there was nothing to worry about. U.S. officials welcomed the offer but said it was insufficient.
Eugene Kaspersky said the company is going to court in order to secure its rights.
What to do when banned without evidence and the right to be heard? Well, we're securing our rights by taking this to the courts. Why? We've done nothing wrong. https://t.co/uPmS0iy2qW-- Eugene Kaspersky (@e_kaspersky) December 18, 2017
The Russian firm claims that the government relied on uncorroborated news media reports as evidence.
