AhnLab, Inc. (www.ahnlab.com), a leading provider of integrated security solutions, today announced its three strategies to deliver its advanced security product and services to the US market at the "AhnLab RSA Media Roundtable" during the RSA Conference 2012. The company's strategy includes: the expansion of partnerships and distribution channels; delivering its specialized security solutions for each industry's requirement; and strengthening the market analysis and local marketing activities.
For several years, AhnLab worked closely with many global companies to expand partnerships and distribution channels in the US market. After years of cooperation with Cosmi Finance LLC, AhnLab is about to bring its V3 Secure Cloud antivirus solution to OfficeMax in March 2012, and US-based other big box retailers in near future.
For technical partnerships, AhnLab has partnered with SafeNet, a global leader in data protection. AhnLab recently announced that SafeNet's eToken USB-based authenticators are integrated with AhnLab's AOS Security Secure Browser and AOS Anti-Key Logger to ensure the authentication of US Cornerstone Community Bank's internet banking users and transactions. AhnLab also announced that it will work together with Intel, Inc. to bring more robust security performance to its solutions. AhnLab will integrate Intel's leading hardware security technology ranging from Intel Core processor-based Ultrabook to Intel Xeon processor-based server platform with its industry-leading software security technology.
AhnLab is planning to deliver its specialized security solutions and values to meet each industry's requirements. AhnLab Online Security (AOS), an integrated security service for online transactions, including internet banking, to protect against security threats such as ZeuS and Spyeye, is already delivered to Santander, Bannamex in South America and Cornerstone Community Bank in US. It will help global financial institutions to fulfill the guidelines such as FFIEC's.
TrusWatcher is AhnLab's comprehensive solution which prevents confidential data loss through APT. AhnLab will work closely with analysts and market experts to inform the strength of the solution to every business from enterprise to small and medium business, as well as developing local distribution channels.
Trusline is a unique whitelist-based security solution specialized for mission-critical industrial systems. With its whitelist-based approach, it allows proactive security against all kinds of security threats including APT. It targets many manufacturing and any mission-critical infrastructures located in the U.S. AhnLab will approach the market by promoting product's key-benefits and AhnLab's proven experience of delivering the solutions to the Korean global manufacturers.
AhnLab V3 Secure Cloud is an integrated security suite that protects against the latest security threats to your computer and Android mobile device by combining real-time antivirus and anti-spyware with network, web, email security and PC management tools in a single integrated solution. Since the product covers both PC and Android users, and has a strong retailer, OfficeMax, AhnLab will focus on delivering integrated security values to both individual PC and mobile users.
Lastly, AhnLab will strengthen its market analysis and local marketing activities. The company will deliver innovative values to target markets including banking, manufacturing or online game market with strong expert groups in order to satisfy customers' precise needs. AhnLab is looking to expand marketing activities by participating in various international conferences related to its strategic products as well as the RSA Conference.
"The US software market is difficult to advance into, but we strongly believe that AhnLab's experience over 20 years in the industry and dedication to security will be paid off," said Hong-Sun Kim, CEO of AhnLab. "We will deliver AhnLab's industry-leading security technology and values to US market with strong partners," he continued.
In RSA Conference 2012, AhnLab suggested cloud-based threat management system called the AhnLab Cloud-computing E-security Service (ACCESS), and AhnLab Smart Defense (ASD) technology. ACCESS is a cloud-based security platform which enables real-time response to the security threat by combining malicious code analysis from AhnLab Security Emergency Response Center 24/7 monitoring and response service from Computer Emergency Response Team.
