At a time when information is shared so freely, the details you choose to keep private matter more than ever. Our commitment to your privacy and data security is a fundamental part of who we are. Scroll down to see how this helps us secure the data that defines your digital world. Then ask your other cybersecurity choices if they can even come close.


Our Global Transparency Initiative reimagines industry openness and reaffirms our commitment to your privacy and data security. See how we’re protecting important customer data right now:


Transparency Centers serve as facilities for trusted partners to access reviews of the company’s code, software updates and threat detection rules, along with other activities. Through them, we provide governments and partners with information on our products and their security, including essential and important technical documentation, for external evaluation in a secure environment. They also serve as a briefing center where trusted stakeholders can learn more about the company’s portfolio, engineering and data processing practices.

Kaspersky Transparency Centers are operating in Istanbul, Kigali, Kuala Lumpur, Madrid, Riyadh, Rome, São Paulo, Singapore, Tokyo, Utrecht, Woburn, and Zurich.

At Kaspersky’s Transparency Centers, the company provides the opportunity to compile its software from the source code and compare it with the publicly available one.

No other cybersecurity provider has done anything as far reaching as this. In opening its Transparency Centers, Kaspersky makes a significant step towards becoming completely transparent about its protection technologies, infrastructure and data processing practices.

The Transparency Centers’ services are also available for remote access. To request access to the Transparency Center, please contact or visit the website.


Kaspersky continuously undertakes third-party assessments to verify the integrity of its solutions and processes. The company has successfully completed the Service Organization Control for Service Organizations (SOC 2) Type 2 audit, conducted by an independent accounting firm.

The final report confirms that the development and release of Kaspersky’s threat detection rules databases (AV databases) are protected from unauthorized changes by strong security controls. To learn more and to request the Kaspersky SOC 2 Type 2 Report, please visit the website.

Kaspersky has also attained ISO27001 certification for its data services.


We go a step further to keep your data private through strong encryption, digital certificates, segregated storage and strict data access policies. We also adhere to the following data processing principles:

⚬ All data sent to Kaspersky by users is not attributed to a specific individual and is anonymized wherever possible. Actions to achieve this include deleting account details from transmitted URLs, obtaining hash sums of threats instead of the exact files, obscuring user IP addresses etc.

⚬ All data processed by Kaspersky serves three key purposes: (a) supporting key product functionality, (b) increasing the effectiveness and performance of the protection components, and (c) offering improved and more suitable solutions to customers and providing them with the appropriate content.

⚬ Customers voluntarily agree to send this data to Kaspersky, by accepting different agreements, which vary depending on the product or service used.

⚬ The data provided is protected, even during transit, in accordance with stringent industry standards, including encryption, digital certificates, segregated storage and strict data access policies.

⚬ Kaspersky constantly reviews the type of data processed by its solutions to protect our customers’ privacy and comply with the very latest legal requirements, such as the GDPR regulations in Europe.
