The Federal Antimonopoly service (FAS) is considering the possibility to oblige Apple to sell their products in Russia with preinstalled antiviruses Russian production. This was confirmed by the RIA Novosti Deputy head of Department Anatoly Golomolzin.

The company does not use anti-virus software, claiming that the best defense is to work with the latest version of the software.

Last week FAS has completed the discussion of the concept of preloading the Russian applications on mobile devices and computers. The regulator proposes to sell gadgets with domestic browsers, mapping services, instant messengers and anti-viruses. In addition, the Agency insisted that the user should be able to remove all built-in apps, apart from the service.

17 December it became known that Russian companies will be obliged to support import substitution and go to the “predominant use” of the domestic software by 2022. Today, there are up to 95 percent foreign office and system software, more than 80 percent of database management systems, more than 70 percent of ERP systems. At the same time, Russian production is about 80 percent of antivirus software, more than half the accounting Department.
