Activities moving west include core processes such as software assembly, threat detection updates and customer data storage from Russian Federation to Zurich.
Reuters first reported the plans in March, citing company documents which said Kaspersky Lab was setting up the centre in response to moves in the United States, Britain and Lithuania a year ago to stop using the company's products.
Today's announcement of the Kaspersky Zurich Transparency Center also comes a day after the Dutch government announced plans to phase out the usage of Kasperksy products on government systems as "as a precautionary measure", also advising private companies to do the same.
Kaspersky Lab has announced it will open a new data center in Switzerland to handle all data for customers in key markets like Europe, North America and Australia in a bid to improve transparency and rebuild trust following a challenging year for the company.
Late a year ago, the United States government signed legislation that bans the use of Kaspersky Lab products within the USA government, amid concerns it was vulnerable to Russian government influence.
To ensure transparency and integrity, Kaspersky Lab is arranging for this activity to be supervised by an independent third party, also based in Switzerland.
"Transparency is one such need, and that is why we've chose to redesign our infrastructure and move our data processing facilities to Switzerland", said Kaspersky in a statement.
Chief executive Eugene Kaspersky said: "In a rapidly changing industry such as ours we have to adapt to the evolving needs of our clients, stakeholders and partners. We believe these two qualities make Switzerland the flawless place to move part of our sensitive infrastructure".
Dutch justice minister Ferd Grapperhaus told MPs in a letter that the cabinet had made a decision to stop using anti-virus software produced by Kaspersky Lab, in order to guarantee national security.
The move is part of the company's "transparency initiative", which will also include third-party auditing of the company's software, processes and procedures.
In a statement, Kaspersky Lab said it would will relocate its "software build conveyer" - a set of programming tools used to assemble ready to use software from source code - to Zurich.
First, our build systems - or "assembly line" - which work on the compilation and creation of Kaspersky Lab products and threat detection rule updates, will now be located in Zurich.
Kaspersky Lab said part of the new facility would be based in Zurich, and the company had chosen Switzerland for its "policy of neutrality" and strong data protection laws.
"This approach will further show that generation after generation of Kaspersky Lab products were built and used for one goal only: protecting the company's customers from cyber threats", the company statement said.
