The Grand opening! Posted by Mikko @ 08:51 GMT

We had the grand opening of our new security lab in Finland last week. The new premises are really nice!

Here's some pictures to give you an idea about where we are working nowadays.

Our labs are on a separate floor in our HQ building. Access to the secure area is via an electronic door, made out of bullet-proof glass.

In the center of the labs we have a purpose-built command center with real-time displays of the global virus situation.

Our server room has racks for creating virtual replication systems and hosting our servers and storage systems. Katrin and Jarno hacking away in the foreground, Alexey in the background.

This is our RF Lab. When the copper-lined door is closed, the lab is completely radio-shielded from the outside world and we can safely test wireless viruses inside.

Nowadays this is only used to work with mobile viruses. In the future we can use it for possible Windows viruses that might use Bluetooth or WLAN connections to spread.

In fact, just last week we got two separate phones sent to us via a courier by someone who had his phone infected with Commwarrior and wanted us to clean it in our lab.

In the grand opening we had visitors from local customers checking out the lab. Here Mika is demoing rootkits for an interested audience.

And we also had Bruce Schneier deliver a keynote presentation for our labs' grand opening. Thanks for the visit, Bruce.
