China says no to Kaspersky and Symantec anti-virus software

13 August 2014

ChinaThe Chinese government has removed Kaspersky and Symantec programs from its list of trusted anti-virus software. Both anti-virus companies were also removed from the vendor lists of the state procurement agency.

Local media believe that this is related to attempts by the government to restrict use of foreign technologies by citizens.

The current list of trusted anti-virus developers includes five Chinese companies: Qihoo 360 Technology Co, Venustech, CAJinchen, Beijing Jiangmin and Rising.

A Kaspersky Lab press representative said that the company is currently in talks with Chinese authorities, but claimed that it would be “too premature to go into any additional details at this time”.

Personal problems of McAfee’s founder impacted the company’s reputation

15 January 2013

The reputation of the anti-virus software developer has been seriously tarnished by the recent scandal involving its founder, John MacAfee. He is accused of murdering a Belize citizen.

McAfee Associates was founded by John back in 1987, but he left the company in 1994 (after it became one of the leading companies on the market). In early 2011, Intel purchased it for $7 billion.

A BrandIndex expert studied the rating of the McAfee anti-virus software brand and made an unusual conclusion: despite the fact that John hasn’t been with the company for over 20 years, his association with the brand is still so strong that his personal problems resulted in a -17 downslide of the company’s rating (on a -100 to 100 scale). This is the lowest rating of the McAfee brand since over 5 years ago when this monitoring was started.

McAfee’s brand rating plummeted after mass media announced that the Belize government had doubts as to the mental health of the company’s founder.
