NSO Freezes Business Connections with Saudi Arabia, Report

The “Washington Post” reports that NSO Group, the Israeli spyware startup has frozen relationship with Saudi Arabia because of concerns that its technology might have been misused.

According to the report citing sources in the kingdom, NSO has frozen new business requests from Saudi Arabia, due to concerns that its Pegasos technology might have been misused.

The founders of NSO raised $ 500 million to acquire control of the company

The NSO excused for providing Saudi regime technology for hacking dissident journalist Jamal Khashoggi mobile phones which lead to his death. NSO claimed that its surveillance technology didn’t directly contribute to tracking Khashoggi.

NSO declined to discuss any specific clients with “Washington Post,” and didn’t confirm or deny the report.

In February, NSO was acquired by its Israeli founders and London-based private equity firm Novalpina Capital LLP from US-based private equity firm Francisco Partner for about $1 billion.
