- AhnLab Supplying AOS Secure Browser and Anti-Key Logger to Cornerstone Community Bank
- AOS Secure Browser Integrating SafeNet's eToken NG-FLASH Anywhere and eToken PRO Anywhere to Ensure Strong User and Transaction Authentication
AhnLab (http://global.ahnlab.com), a leading provider of integrated security service, today announced that US based Cornerstone Community Bank selected AhnLab Online Security Secure Browser (AOS Secure Browser), to prevent information leakage against hacking threats, and AhnLab Online Security Anti-Key Logger (AOS Anti-Key Logger), advanced anti-key logging solution, to keep its internet banking environment from sophisticated security threats today.
AhnLab has partnered with SafeNet, a global leader in data protection, to ensure the authentication of US Cornerstone's internet banking users and transactions. SafeNet's eToken USB-based authenticators are integrated with AhnLab's AOS Security Secure Browser and AOS Anti-Key Logger. AhnLab selected SafeNet's eToken NG-FLASH Anywhere and eToken PRO Anywhere as they provide strong user authentication solutions that can be deployed on any Windows based platform without the need to install any client application, making it perfect for both consumer and partner authentication scenarios where the organization cannot control the user environment.
US Cornerstone Community Bank selected AhnLab's Secure Portable Browser, the joint solution between AhnLab and SafeNet, to authenticate its internet-banking users and the transactions. When a user plugs SafeNet's eToken, using Anywhere technology, the AOS Secure Browser runs automatically, without the need to install any client software. AhnLab's AOS Secure Browser, one of the world's strongest security browsers, protects the banking transaction session from security threats that include unknown memory hacking tools that allow access of only authorized functions/modules. The AOS Anti-Key Logger protects critical personal information - password, account number, credit card number, residence number, etc. - input through keyboard. It is applied to eToken's authentication session to protect the e-token authentication password from leaking by key logging.
The Federal Financial Institutions Examination Council (FFIEC) has been enforcing 'Internet Banking Supplementary Guide' since June in 2011 and AhnLab and SafeNet's Secure Portal Browser solution will help global financial institutions fulfill the guidelines for the financial services industry.
"This is a good case that two world class security companies worked together to provide safer and more trusted internet banking environment," said HongSun Kim, CEO of AhnLab. "With this success story, AhnLab will focus its efforts on initiating the launch of its service in North America with strong partners."
