New internet security solutions launched

December 29, 2010

Ahn Lab Inc, a provider of integrated security solutions, has launched an internet security solutions package in a bid to tap banks and other financial institutions.
The package known as V3 Internet Security (IS) protects computers in real time against most security threats, including viruses, hacking, spamming and phishing.
At the launch of the product at Dhaka Sheraton Hotel on Monday, Dr Atiur Rahman, Bangladesh Bank governor, said the entry of Ahn Lab to the local market was timely and relevant as most businesses here have been adopting modern information and communication technology and going online to run businesses “smoothly, efficiently and cost effectively”.
He said the anti-virus software would be a great help for the organisations to keep their systems safe from virus attacks.
Ziaul Haque Khondker, chairman of Securities and Exchange Commission, said: “This software will gain popularity in Bangladesh because online security issues now emerge as the most important concern for many organisations though the internet offers safe and convenient new ways to conduct business.”
Ahn has partnered with the Technology Solutions Limited, a leading IT company in Bangladesh, to sell and distribute its products initially looking for clients such as banks and financial institutions.
Headquartered in South Korea, the 15-year-old Ahn Lab dominates almost 60 percent of the internet security solutions market at home and enjoys a strong presence in Japan and China.
The Ahn Lab V3 operates on Windows 7, Windows Vista, XP, 2000, 98 and ME.
Syed Mahmudul Huq, chairman of Technology Solutions Limited, and Taiyoung Cho, Korean ambassador, also spoke.
