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.
