SEOUL, SOUTH KOREA and SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwire - Dec 4, 2012) - AhnLab, a leading provider of information security products and services for consumers and enterprise business environments, today announced the expanded availability of the V3 Click, the industry's first Personal Security Appliance, across major electronics retailers in North America. 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.
The industry's first Personal Security Appliance is now available for purchase at OfficeMax, Fry's, New Egg, and Micro Center. With its unique and arresting design, functionality as a portable hard drive, and ability to provide comprehensive security to any computer system by simply plugging into a USB port, the V3 Click is ideal for users who connect to the Internet on campus, in classrooms, or coffee shops.
"Malware and virus authors do not take a break during the holiday season. In fact, they are more likely to increase their criminal activity during this time," said Philip Kim, CEO, AhnLab. "We created the V3 Click to be the easiest to use personal security appliance available. Simply plug the device into your computer's USB port and you are quickly protected from those who are trying to steal your holiday cheer by wreaking havoc on your computer."
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. Installation is instant, feather light and takes less than one minute. No serial numbers, email addresses or other information is required, ever. The device itself acts as its own serial number. Once installed, if the PC becomes infected with a malware, spyware or a virus, the LED on the V3 Click turns from green to red; clicking the button once isolates and removes the virus automatically.
In addition to the V3 Click's strong anti-virus and anti-malware technology, the USB device also features a system tune-up solution to optimize computer performance and 2.7 GB of secure storage. The added storage capacity of the V3 Click makes it an optimum security device for those on the go.
