MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Kaspersky Lab cybersecurity company said Thursday that it plans to withdraw its complaints against Microsoft from the European Commission and FCA, which were previously filed on the grounds that the multinational corporation was favoring its antivirus in Windows 10 over software made by third-party companies.
On Wednesday, Microsoft said that it managed to reach a settlement with the Kaspersky firm regarding complaints filed in Russia. The latter confirmed that the Russian Federal Anti-Monopoly Service (FAS) satisfied all points of its appeal against the IT giant.
“We are satisfied with the approach that Microsoft chose in implementing FAS warnings as well as with the terms of its fulfillment. We also are preparing an appeal to the European Commission and to the FCA that we no longer have any observations against Microsoft,” the Kaspersky lab said.
Lately, Kaspersky Lab has been experiencing difficulties in the United States. The company was accused of working for Russian intelligence services and its products were partially banned in the United States.
Despite that Kaspersky Lab plans to expand its market, announcing in July the worldwide launch of free antivirus Kaspersky Free that will also be available in the US.
