By Public Spend Forum ‌‌ posted 12 days ago



Russian cybersecurity vendor Kaspersky Lab has been removed as a pre-approved vendor on two major governmentwide vehicles, NASA SEWP and GSA Schedule 70. The removal comes amid concerns the Russian company could pose a cybersecurity risk. "GSA's priorities are to ensure the integrity and security of U.S. government systems and networks and evaluate products and services available on our contracts," a GSA spokesperson told FCW in a statement. Kaspersky responded with a statement of its own, explaining they have no ties to any government and “has never helped, nor will help, any government in the world with its cyberespionage efforts.”
