SpireTech has been monitoring developments relative to security questions being raised about Kaspersky Anti-Virus software, including the US federal government’s restrictions for federal agencies announced on September 13, 2017.  SpireTech is currently investigating the best alternative options in consultation with both our peers and software suppliers.

While respecting the geopolitical issues impacting this product, from a technical standpoint Kaspersky Anti-Virus has been continuing to provide security updates and patches. Once we have determined available alternatives we will inform all clients to inquire whether their organization wishes to change antivirus vendors.

Please contact us with any questions you might have in the meantime.
