Where is Your Security Software Made?

Where is your security software made and supported?

Throughout the 20th century, America stood as a symbol for top-quality manufacturing and technological innovation. However, as the economy globalized, more and more American companies began to outsource jobs to foreign countries; sacrificing American-made quality for cheap labor.

The software industry is no stranger to sending jobs overseas. According to Sourcing Line Computer Economics, 211,700 American programmers and software engineers lost their jobs to offshore outsourcing in 2015 alone, resulting in $14.4 billion in lost wages.

The fact is, most popular security software is made, developed and supported in foreign countries. The result is billions of U.S. dollars going to foreign countries, and an ever-increasing security risk to American homes, businesses and our government.

According to the FBI these security risks include weakening our country’s vital infrastructure, national security and economy. These are the primary reasons the FBI has placed agents in various countries throughout the globe to address cyber security; Romania, Estonia and Ukraine to name a few. While working in these three countries, the FBI has found cyber organized crime groups targeting the U.S. Unfortunately Romania, Estonia and Ukraine also house offices for some of the most popular security software.
