Chinese Government Banned Symantec and Kaspersky Lab

Chinese Government Banned Symantec and Kaspersky Lab

The most well-known anti-virus companies Symantec and Kaspersky were banned from working on government contracts in China. According to the local media, the authorities are trying to limit use of foreign technology – as a result, Symantec, owned by the US, and Kaspersky, owned by the Russians, can no longer apply for government contracts.

The Chinese media reported that government procurement office had only approved the use of Chinese anti-virus software brands: Qihoo 360, Venustech, CAJinchen, Beijing Jiangmin and Rising.

However, it looks like Kaspersky is not going to give up, but hold negotiations with the Chinese authorities on the issue. At the moment, there are no additional details on this matter, but the tech giant’s intentions are understandable. In the meantime, the local authorities could also be understood: apparently, Beijing is keen on promoting use of domestic IT products after leaks from Edward Snowden raised concerns about various foreign surveillance programs.

As for Symantec, the company confirmed that China did ban use of one of its data loss prevention products, but also clarified that its representatives are currently in talks about the ban. At the same time, a Symantec spokesperson pointed out that there was no indication of a Chinese ban on Symantec’s flagship anti-virus software programs.

A few months ago, the Chinese authorities had also banned government use of Windows 8, explaining this move with the desire to “ensure computer security after Microsoft ended support for its Windows XP”. Like in many other countries, XP was (and remains) widely used in China, and it seems that the country is not ready to upgrade all of its hundreds millions of computers just because Microsoft decided it’s time to move on.

blade70 avatarIt's ironic that China always steals and copy technology from their foreign business partners as a matter of fact (every company that wants to make business in Chine has to disclose proprietary technology to their Chinese counterparts) and yet, they seldom develop technology by themselves.

Embolism avatarhaha @2 if you look back into china's history you will find they have developed 100`s of the things we use today as a matter of course and when we were little past the stone age ourselves they were smelting ore and making metals I think they were about 800 yrs ahead of us in making metals and the list of what they have given the world is huge so funny that you and a lot of people believe they have given the world nothing and just copy everyone else when in a lot of cases it is quite the opposite and we the westerners have gained and learned from them.

Embolism avatarpersonally I think the world has taken and worked enough off the backs of the Chinese and obviously they are intent on shoring up their own security and do not accept 3rd party monitoring by the USA who along with most of the western world which on paper they own through overseas shoring up of American banks as well as many other countries during this economic recession.

ao1jmm avatarHAHA @3 The fact they have invented certain things in the past does not take away the fact that in today's time China does steal industrial secrets.

No avataremolism, i was with you until you created comment 4. your statement in 3 about investments and out-right ownership bang on. china currently owns so many american dollars that, if they decided to sell all of it, the us dollar would become like the peso. they don't do it now only because, because of the global economy, they would harm themselves. even 1:1 is a losing bet.

bigcow2k avatar@5 yeah they steal industrial secrets, so what? and who doesn't? the US? i bet some or most of u don't realise that china was a bit, no..quite, late in adopting this copycat move, considering the fact that US and other major powers have been doing this for decades already.

ao1jmm avatar@7, The discussion is about China not the US or your opinion about the US. You might want to stop assuming what other might or might not know as well.
