AhnLab Launches Malware Defense System for Integrated Endpoint, Server, Network, and Cloud Protection

Unveiled at This Year's RSA Conference in San Francisco, AhnLab MDS Provides a Unified and Comprehensive Approach to Stopping Advanced Persistent Threats and Zero-Day Attacks Across All Access Points for an Organization

SEOUL, SOUTH KOREA and SAN FRANCISCO, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 02/25/13 -- AhnLab (KOSDAQ: 053800), a leading provider of information security products and services for consumers and enterprise business environments, today announced the North American launch of the AhnLab Malware Defense System (MDS). AhnLab MDS is the only enterprise strength security system that combines local and cloud-based analytics to stop advanced persistent threats (APTs) and zero-day threats anywhere across the organization.

AhnLab MDS delivers comprehensive threat protection, applying rapid malware recognition and remediation with real-time blocking of malicious network traffic and dynamic disruption of active security breaches. This advanced security system protects endpoints, servers, networks and cloud resources, all within a single architecture and integrated management environment.

"AhnLab MDS is the only truly unified and comprehensive approach to stopping APTs activity across all access points for an organization," said Philip Kim, president and CEO, AhnLab. "Being a rich, single-source solution, AhnLab MDS was developed to simplify security for both system administrators and end users. A proven approach to security, we are eager to introduce our technology to North America at this year's RSA Conference."

The most important advantage of AhnLab MDS is that all aspects related to file execution are considered when analyzing behavior. AhnLab MDS evaluates the results of the behavior analysis in combination with signature-based determination. Additional information about associated files is reviewed, such as malicious characteristics, the risk level of the URLs or IP addresses that the file connects to, reputation information, and comprehensive behavior patterns. Moreover, much of the analysis is done in the cloud utilizing multiple scan engines and other techniques, to conserve resources within the AhnLab MDS appliance itself.

Benefits of AhnLab MDS include:

  • Layered approach protects everything -- networks, servers, endpoints and cloud resources
  • Simplified management and rapid response to APTs anywhere across the enterprise
  • Single source for security intelligence, product updates, systems management and technical support
  • Superior analysis of potential threats, including detailed bodies of evidence for behavior that is suspicious but not definitively good or bad
  • Automated malware removal and targeted disruption of malware network activity without affecting normal business operations
  • Scanning of popular file formats frequently used by APTs for propagation in real-time; malicious material hidden in Microsoft Office documents, JPEG images, Adobe Acrobat PDF files and Adobe Flash videos is stopped automatically before it can infect systems
  • Secure service enablement for social media and other essential online applications

Unlike other solutions that may require multiple appliances and additional multiple per-mailbox license fees, customers obtain AhnLab MDS' capabilities within a single appliance and a simple licensing structure weighted towards OPEX, for ease of licensing and installing.

AhnLab MDS' design simplifies security for both system administrators and end users. All system operations are configured and managed through a single user interface. Alerts are directed to specific staff for follow-up -- including access to critical information via mobile device.

AhnLab MDS is available immediately for organizations ranging in size from SMBs to the enterprise, that are looking for simplified, comprehensive security against APTs and other malicious threats. For more information, please visit www.AhnLab.com or call 1-866-666-3080.

WebRTC sits at the intersection between VoIP and the Web. As such, it poses some interesting challenges for those developing services on top of it, but also for those who need to test and monitor these services. In his session at WebRTC Summit, Tsahi Levent-Levi, co-founder of testRTC, reviewed the various challenges posed by WebRTC when it comes to testing and monitoring and on ways to overcome them.
DevOps is being widely accepted (if not fully adopted) as essential in enterprise IT. But as Enterprise DevOps gains maturity, expands scope, and increases velocity, the need for data-driven decisions across teams becomes more acute. DevOps teams in any modern business must wrangle the ‘digital exhaust’ from the delivery toolchain, "pervasive" and "cognitive" computing, APIs and services, mobile devices and applications, the Internet of Things, and now even blockchain. In this power panel at @...

In his keynote at @ThingsExpo, Chris Matthieu, Director of IoT Engineering at Citrix and co-founder and CTO of Octoblu, focused on building an IoT platform and company. He provided a behind-the-scenes look at Octoblu’s platform, business, and pivots along the way (including the Citrix acquisition of Octoblu).
For basic one-to-one voice or video calling solutions, WebRTC has proven to be a very powerful technology. Although WebRTC’s core functionality is to provide secure, real-time p2p media streaming, leveraging native platform features and server-side components brings up new communication capabilities for web and native mobile applications, allowing for advanced multi-user use cases such as video broadcasting, conferencing, and media recording.
Web Real-Time Communication APIs have quickly revolutionized what browsers are capable of. In addition to video and audio streams, we can now bi-directionally send arbitrary data over WebRTC's PeerConnection Data Channels. With the advent of Progressive Web Apps and new hardware APIs such as WebBluetooh and WebUSB, we can finally enable users to stitch together the Internet of Things directly from their browsers while communicating privately and securely in a decentralized way.
WebRTC is about the data channel as much as about video and audio conferencing. However, basically all commercial WebRTC applications have been built with a focus on audio and video. The handling of “data” has been limited to text chat and file download – all other data sharing seems to end with screensharing. What is holding back a more intensive use of peer-to-peer data? In her session at @ThingsExpo, Dr Silvia Pfeiffer, WebRTC Applications Team Lead at National ICT Australia, looked at differ...
The security needs of IoT environments require a strong, proven approach to maintain security, trust and privacy in their ecosystem. Assurance and protection of device identity, secure data encryption and authentication are the key security challenges organizations are trying to address when integrating IoT devices. This holds true for IoT applications in a wide range of industries, for example, healthcare, consumer devices, and manufacturing. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Lancen LaChance, vic...
With all the incredible momentum behind the Internet of Things (IoT) industry, it is easy to forget that not a single CEO wakes up and wonders if “my IoT is broken.” What they wonder is if they are making the right decisions to do all they can to increase revenue, decrease costs, and improve customer experience – effectively the same challenges they have always had in growing their business. The exciting thing about the IoT industry is now these decisions can be better, faster, and smarter. Now ...
