Security at a Click with AhnLab's V3 Click

By SIP Trunking Report Contributor

The Internet is swarming with worms, trojans and malware ready to enter computers and laptops once they have an entry point and sometimes even with an anti-virus and a full suite of security software installed. This could be because many data security solutions are complex to install, configure and apply to systems and if not installed correctly, prove ineffective.

This is where AhnLab, a provider of information products and security, claims to score over many others with its just released V3 Click, touted to be the industry's first personal security appliance.

The AhnLab V3 Click Home Desktop Edition features a strong anti-virus prevention software and a system tune up solution to optimize computer performance. Its USB connection, normally an entry point for security threats, turns into a warning system the minute the user's system is infected.

"The idea behind the V3 Click was to create a personal security appliance that would simplify the installation of security protection for a PC or laptop, easily detect and remove threats, and review the system performance of a user's computer to ensure maximum operational efficiency,” said Philip Kim, CEO at AhnLab.

The V3 Click Home Desktop Edition is a compact portable USB appliance that automatically and easily protects computers and every system it is attached to against viruses, malware, and a host of Internet security threats, in addition to system tune-up, noted company officials.

In addition to providing comprehensive security protection to any computer it's connected to, it reportedly allows consumers to protect sensitive documents like tax returns or contracts. Its compact nature makes it ideal for using to connect to the Internet on campus, in classrooms or even coffee shops.

All that users need to do is plug in the V3 Click into a PC's USB port, run a simple set up program and in a matter of minutes, the desktop or laptop is completely protected. V3 Click thus solves problems end users' experience with traditional anti-virus and security suite software.

Once, the appliance detects an intruder, the LED on V3 Click turns red and by clicking on that button, the malware is isolated and removed automatically. The V3 Click has a suggested retail price of $49.99 U.S. List and is available through the AhnLab website as well as in OfficeMax locations across the North.

AhnLab, Inc., a provider of integrated security solutions, announced its partnership with Intel to integrate Intel Identity Protection Technology (Intel IPT) with AhnLab Online Security(AOS) solution.
