SEOUL, SOUTH KOREA and SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwire - Mar 5, 2013) - AhnLab, a leading provider of information security products and services for consumers and enterprise business environments, today announced that two AhnLab security solutions were awarded medals 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. More than 50 judges from a broad spectrum of industry voices from around the world participated. Their average scores determined the 2013 Global Excellence Awards Finalists and Winners. The medal winners were announced last week, February 27th, at an awards dinner in San Francisco.
AhnLab V3 Click received a Gold medal for best "Anti-Malware, Anti-Spam, or Anti-Virus." The V3 Click is a unique, portable, and easy to use anti-virus device that plugs into a USB port on a user's laptop or PC. With V3 Click, there are no complicated installations or subscriptions necessary.
Extremely easy to use, when connected via USB, if the unit's light turns red when it detects a threat, the user clicks the device, and the V3 Click removes the threat and the light turns back to green, illustrating the computer is clean. It includes a secure 2-port hub that scans any device, such as a memory drive, that the user connects and automatically repairs any threats on the device.
AhnLab Malware Defense System (MDS) was awarded a Bronze medal in the New Products category. MDS is the only corporate security appliance that combines local and cloud-based analytics to stop Advanced Persistent Threats (APTs) anywhere across the organization. AhnLab MDS security protects endpoints, servers, networks and cloud resources. It simplifies security for both IT administrators and end users by providing advanced protection with a single appliance, an approach that competitors often require multiple appliances to match.
"V3 Click has proven to be an easy to use device for home users to protect their laptops and PCs from viruses. With MDS, our great team of engineers designed a multi-dimensional system to protect businesses from unknown malware and APTs. In testing against our competition, we were faster and captured more malware, with fewer false positives," said Philip Kim, CEO, AhnLab. "Info Security Products Guide's recognition of AhnLab further validates our cyber crime-fighting technology as ahead of the curve. This industry honor is a great endorsement to the fact that we provide the highest levels of security for our enterprise customers and consumers."
