SEOUL, SOUTH KOREA and SAN FRANCISCO, CA, Feb 25, 2013 (MARKETWIRE via COMTEX) --
AhnLab (KOSDAQ: 053800), a leading provider of information security
products and services for consumers and enterprise business
environments, today announced that two of its security solutions are
finalists for Info Security Products Guide's Global Excellence
Awards. The Global Excellence Awards recognize security and IT
vendors with advanced, groundbreaking products and solutions that
raise the bar for other vendors in all areas of security and
technologies. The winners will be announced on February 27 at an
awards dinner in San Francisco.
AhnLab Malware Defense System (MDS), a finalist in the New Products
category, is the only corporate security appliance that combines
local and cloud-based analytics to stop Advanced Persistent Threats
(APTs) attacks anywhere across the organization. Combining cloud
intelligence, advanced heuristics and multiple scan engines, among
other techniques, stops Denial of Service (DDos) attacks,
unidentified and previously unknown malware that other appliances on
the network may miss. It delivers comprehensive threat protection,
applying rapid malware recognition and remediation with real-time
blocking of malicious network traffic and dynamic disruption of
active security breaches. AhnLab MDS security protects endpoints,
servers, networks and cloud resources. It simplifies security for
both IT administrators and end users.
AhnLab V3 Click, a finalist for best "Anti-Malware, Anti-Spam, or
Anti-Virus," is a unique, convenient, and easy to use anti-virus
device that plugs into a USB port on a user's laptop or PC. It's
portable, providing protection for whatever device it's plugged into.
There are no complicated installations or subscriptions necessary. A
light turns red when it detects a threat, the user clicks the device,
and the V3 Click removes the threat and the light turns green. It
includes a secure 2-port hub that scans any devices (such as a memory
drive) the user connects it to and deletes or repairs any threats on
"The bad guys are getting smarter and more dangerous on the Internet.
Particularly with their efforts with Advanced Persistent Threats,
other attacks to steal information from businesses, including
customer IDs, and profit from cyber crime. We must be even smarter in
protecting our customers against them," said Philip Kim, CEO, AhnLab.
"I applaud the skills and creativity of our team in developing AhnLab
MDS to provide businesses with real-time protection against APTs and
other threats. Also, for V3 Click, which gives home users portable
protection at the press of a button, we are honored to be a finalist
for these awards from Info Security Products Guide," said Kim.
