But at least one of the reasons Kaspersky is isolated in the eyes of American intelligence officials is that Kaspersky sells antivirus software to Western companies and governments. Antivirus, software that is designed to look at everything that happened on a computer and has control over the machines it occupies, has a few more good intelligence gathering tools.
