While hosting a Reddit Ask Me Anything session on May 11, Eugene Kaspersky, CEO of Kaspersky Lab, provided two statements addressing mentions of the company during a recent Senate hearing:

“I respectfully disagree with their opinion, and I’m very sorry these gentlemen can’t use the best software on the market because of political reasons.” -- Attributable to Eugene Kaspersky, CEO, Kaspersky Lab

“Once again, I think that due to political reasons, these gentlemen don’t have an option, and are deprived from the opportunity to use the best endpoint security on the market without any real reason or evidence of wrongdoing from our side. I would be very happy to testify in front of the Senate, to participate in the hearings and to answer any questions they would decide to ask me.” -- Attributable to Eugene Kaspersky, CEO, Kaspersky Lab

The company statement regarding the recent false allegations about Kaspersky Lab:

“As a private company, Kaspersky Lab has no ties to any government, and the company has never helped, nor will help, any government in the world with its cyberespionage efforts. The company has a 20 year history in the IT security industry of always abiding by the highest ethical business practices, and Kaspersky Lab believes it is completely unacceptable that the company is being unjustly accused without any hard evidence to back up these false allegations. Kaspersky Lab is available to assist all concerned government organizations with any ongoing investigations, and the company ardently believes a deeper examination of Kaspersky Lab will confirm that these allegations are unfounded.” – Attributable to Kaspersky Lab
