SEOUL, South Korea, Oct. 8, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Frost & Sullivan has recognized AhnLab Inc with the 2015 South Korea Technology Innovation Award in Advanced Persistent Threat (APT) solutions.
Mr. Charles Lim, Senior Industry Analyst, Networking, Information and Cyber Security, Asia Pacific at Frost & Sullivan said that AhnLab has differentiated itself from other security vendors in its drive for excellence in developing a holistic APT solution in South Korea.
"In its latest MDS – Malware Defense System lineup, AhnLab has developed several proprietary algorithms to analyze advanced malware and various attack vectors across the network, providing the right approach to mitigate threats and perform remediation as a total solution," he added.
He said that AhnLab uses a hybrid technology of static analysis and dynamic analysis to detect malware with its automated analysis technology at the assembly-level. With this, it is capable of blocking and analyzing evasive malware or variants that infiltrate into the endpoint via various ways, such as encrypted traffic using SSL, a USB drive or though the trusted internal network.
He added that due to its product efficiencies, the industry views AhnLab as the top 2 vendors in South Korea, which also puts the company within the top 10 APT vendors in Asia Pacific.
"The MDS' ease of use, clear visibility of attack vectors and accuracy of detection were well-received by key IT security professionals in the region," Mr. Lim said.
