Transcript: Best Buy Pulls Kaspersky Lab Software From Shelves

Following accusations Kaspersky Labs had ties to the Russian government, Best Buy has decided to pull the company's software  from its shelves .  Kaspersky Lab confirmed Best Buy's decision, but the Moscow-based company also said their nearly decade-long relationship could be " re-evaluated in the future ."  Kaspersky Lab has more than 400 million users.

It's also well known for  responding quickly  to major cybersecurity incidents like WannaCry, Petya and the most recent  Equifax breach .

But Kaspersky Lab is  going through a tough summer .

In July,  Bloomberg reported  the company developed software for Russian intelligence.

Since then, multiple U.S. government agencies have voiced concerns.
