    It's the world's number-one telecom gear supplier and number-two smartphone vendor after South Korea's Samsung.
    Huawei's revenue grew almost 20 percent in 2018, surpassing $100bn for the first time.
    But the Chinese technology company is at the centre of the trade war between China and the United States.
    Huawei is blacklisted by the White House, and US President Donald Trump said: "Huawei is something that's very dangerous. You look at what they've done from a security standpoint, from a military standpoint, it's very dangerous."
    Why is Huawei regarded as cybersecurity threat by the US? And is it an independent company or an arm of the Chinese government?
    "Right now, we have a geopolitical war between the US and China, and as the largest privately owned company in China and active in telecommunication markets in 170 countries …. we are kind of caught in the middle," Huawei's chief security officer in the US, Andy Purdy, tells Al Jazeera.
    "A number of government people have said it (the Huawei ban) is not really about the company, it's about the country, China. So, I think the fact that we are based in China raises some concerns ... The US is deeply concerned about China and the rise of China economically and militarily. And the US liked the world better when the US was still alone, as the powerhouse militarily and economically," Purdy says.
    "We seem to be being used as a sort of bargaining chip in a way as part of the China-US trade talks. And we don't want to be a bargaining chip. Because the China government doesn't speak through us and we don't want to speak through the Chinese government."
    On this episode of Talk to Al Jazeera, Andy Purdy, Huawei's chief security officer in the US, discusses the Huawei ban and the issues behind it.

Yes Andy Purdy is correct. The US government hates that China now is leading in technologies. The US tries to find any possible ways to slow down China.

Huawei is the baby of a Totalitarian Communist dictatorship that mass murdered 100s of millions of people. If you still support them you should spend your next vacation in a Chinese labor camp where they also do some organ harvesting. Say bye to your heart or kidneys!

I bought a Huawei P30 pro because it's a cool device, the battery capacity is amazing and the camera has great quality. Maybe the scare is the level of quality they have reached.

Chinese Communist Party of China is a bad corrupt actor on the world stage, which is not so evident looking on the surface, but looking at what they did in history, we can see through the evil nature and ambition of CCP. The west are too friendly, porous for infiltration by CCP. The west has to stand up strong and hard against CCP.

You can be sure that so many people have picked through the source code, such as the UK's GCHQ, that if there were the slightest software vulnerability then some smartarse would have flagged it up. If I were the firm, I would be grateful of all of this free software testing. You'd have to pay people a lot of money to do the work normally, and of course that's on top of the free advertising by President Trump. It's going to run a lot better than Windows, and I doubt it would need so much as a software patch. Meanwhile I got a nasty virus the other day. I traced it back to a Java runtime which has had the vulnerability since 2013, and still they issue the one with the virus backdoor. Anyone would think they do it on purpose. Uncle Sam's software is dangerous.

Huawei makes the product to please everyone and it's customers not to satisfy one country such as the U S if they don't want don't buy but not telling others, because you don't have the technology to compete.
