AhnLab introduces enhanced cybersecurity platform.
Korean cybersecurity firm AhnLab will launch new a cybersecurity platform that monitors and responds to advanced cyber threats.
The firm said Thursday its new AhnLab EDR platform will help companies protect their data from highly malicious and automated malware.
EDR refers to "Endpoint Detection and Response," which are tools primarily focused on detecting and investigating suspicious activities and endpoint protection. Originated in reference to computer networks, the term "endpoint" means a device or node that is connected to an internet network and accepts communications back and forth.
The country's leading cybersecurity firm said AhnLab EDR can lock down endpoint threats and make a real-time analysis of the threat to the endpoint. The new platform will be launched April 30.
"With AhnLab EDR, customers can manage their cyberseucity issues on one platform," Lee Sang-kook, senior director at the firm's endpoint platform bureau, said during a press conference at Courtyard by Marriott Seoul Pangyo hotel in Seongnam, Gyeonggi Province.
The firm said AhnLab EDR can be run together with its existing V3 security products. It will try to attract customers from financial firms and medium-sized and large companies that need to take heed of cybersecurity issues.
EDR is a rapidly growing sector of the cybersecurity industry. The global EDR market was valued at $750 million in 2016 and is projected to reach $5,857 million by 2025, according to data from Endpoint Detection and Response Market.
