AhnLab Debuts V3 Click -- The World's First Advanced Personal Security Device

Easily Protects Computers From a Host of Security Threats at the Touch of a Button

SEOUL, SOUTH KOREA and SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwire - Oct 22, 2012) -  AhnLab (KRX: 053800), a leading provider of information security products and services for consumers, today announced the availability of the V3 Click, the industry's first Personal Security Appliance. The V3 Click Home Desktop Edition is a compact portable USB appliance that automatically and easily protects computers against viruses, malware, and a host of Internet security threats, in addition to system tune-up.

The V3 Click solves problems end users' experience with traditional anti-virus and security suite software that is often complicated, expensive and degrades system performance. By simply plugging the V3 Click into a PC's USB port and running a simple set up program, a user's desktop or laptop is completely protected in a matter of minutes. When your PC is infected with malware, V3 Click automatically detects them, and the LED on the V3 Click turns from green to red; clicking the button once isolates and removes the malware automatically. 

"For many computer users, data security solutions are complex to install, configure and apply to their systems and if they don't install a piece of security software correctly, these systems can be ineffective," said Philip Kim, CEO, AhnLab. "The idea behind the V3 Click was to create a personal security appliance that would simplify the installation of security protection for a PC or laptop, easily detect and remove threats, and review the system performance of a user's computer to ensure maximum operational efficiency. We are delighted with the simplicity and effectiveness of the V3 Click for securing an end user's system at home or at work."

In addition to comprehensive security protecting a consumer's PC or laptop, the V3 Click also provides 2.7 GB of secure storage, allowing consumers an added measure of security to protect sensitive documents like tax returns or contracts. Because of its compact design, its ability to store documents securely and provide comprehensive security to any computer it's connected to, the V3 Click is ideal for college students who connect to the Internet on campus, in classrooms, or coffee shops. 

The AhnLab V3 Click Home Desktop Edition features strong anti-virus prevention software and a system tune up solution to optimize computer performance. If a user can plug a USB storage device into their system, they can easily install and run the V3 Click as their personal security appliance. Powered through the PC, the V3 Click protects every system it is attached to. USB key fobs and other devices that connected to PCs and laptops via the USB port make this connector an entry point for malware, viruses and Trojan attacks. The V3 Click's USB connection can stop an attack or infection the second it enters a user's protected system, turning a USB connection into a warning system instead of a point of entry for a security threat.
