AhnLab V3 Secure Cloud offers anti-hacking, anti-phishing and PC optimization
RSA Conference 2012 – San Francisco, Calif., February 27th, 2012 - Losing your data to a computer virus is a major disaster, but, for a government or national banking system, the effects can be truly cataclysmic. AnhLab Inc. knows this all too well as an internet security provider to banks and the South Korean government. Now, American consumers will be able to get the same protection following AhnLab’s announcement of a partnership with U.S.-based Cosmi Software to bring its Secure Cloud antivirus solution program to OfficeMax and other big box retailers March 3.
