Amid the COVID-19 pandemic, organizations have accelerated the digital transformation to address new requirements for flexible workplaces and better productivity. As more devices are connected from different locations, traditional security parameters have been collapsing and organizations are under increasing pressure of complexity from operating point products. Consequently, realizing genuine integration of security products into a platform and securing operational efficiency have risen as a key to secure business sustainability.

 

As the leading security vendor of South Korea, AhnLab has been addressing the challenges inherent in managing and securing a growing endpoint environment from sophisticated cyber threats. AhnLab, through its unified AhnLab Endpoint Protection Platform (EPP), provides customers with the integrated management and operation of its endpoint security solutions, including V3 and Endpoint Detection and Response (EDR). 

 

From the evaluation by Frost & Sullivan, AhnLab was highly acknowledged with its organic integration via AhnLab EPP. Frost & Sullivan noted that the platform provides customers with more efficient operations and stronger security capabilities through its centralized console that detects, monitors, and responds to ongoing cyber threats.

Vivien Pua, Industry Analyst at Frost & Sullivan stated: “With ongoing efforts to transform the traditional endpoint protection approach, AhnLab stands out from other market competitors by continuing to work on its strategy to converge its existing endpoint security offering into a single agent and single management approach to enable enhanced threat management and incident response capabilities.”

 

Vincent S.K. Lee, Vice President of Marketing at AhnLab, said, “We are delighted to be recognized with our ceaseless effort to establish a robust security environment and support customer’s success, which have been our first and foremost priority, by winning the award three years in a row. AhnLab will continue to pursue unified security powered by seamless integration to make customers’ digital transformation more intelligent and resilient.

 

Meanwhile, AhnLab has made a notable achievement in its Operation Technology (OT) and cloud security business. By acquiring NAONWORKS, a network-based OT security provider in July 2021, the company complemented its existing OT security offerings centered with AhnLab Endpoint Protection System (EPS). Also, the company launched AhnLab CPP, a hybrid cloud workload protection platform, and AhnLab Cloud, a managed cloud service specialized in security in 2020 and 2021, respectively. The cloud security platform and service have been embracing a growing number of customers by addressing the security challenges against the rising cloud threats.
