5 Companies That Had A Rough Week


RSA Again Under Scrutiny For Possible NSA Link

Researchers this week said they uncovered another link between National Security Agency surveillance activities and RSA Security's encryption tools, a link that allegedly supports the agency's ability to spy on protected communications. Systems integrators say reports of security vendors working with the NSA have businesses questioning the reliability of security products and services developed by U.S. technology vendors.

RSA came under fire in December when published reports said the company had worked with the NSA under a $10 million contract to include a back door in its widely used encryption toolkit. RSA denied those reports.
