Sybari Software, a leader in securing the information workplace, today announced that it has partnered with AhnLab, one of Asias leading security solution providers, to further strengthen the messaging security protection provided by its flagship Antigen product line. The AhnLab V3 engine is the eighth scan engine available with Antigen, Sybaris comprehensive antivirus and content-filtering solution that provides a proactive and powerful defense against viruses, worms and malicious code for Microsoft Exchange, Microsoft SharePoint, Lotus Domino, SMTP Gateway and Microsoft Live Communication Server.
Sybaris antivirus solutions provide businesses with a proven, layered defense against the viruses and worms that attack messaging and collaboration servers and threaten the integrity of corporate networks, said Charles Kim, vice president at AhnLab. We are pleased to be partnering with Sybari in order to bring an additional layer of protection to further protect mission critical applications located across the globe.
Sybaris Antigen is the only solution that offers companies up to eight leading scan engine technologies for protection against viruses, worms and malicious code. Since new viruses may survive a single scan engine, Antigen delivers an extra measure of protection by provisioning, updating and managing the use of multiple-scan engines, virtually eliminating the risk of network infection. With multiple scan engines, users receive flexible coverage when waiting for antivirus signature file updates during virus outbreaks, rather than being dependent on one antivirus lab for a cure. The scan engines employed by Antigen have all been rated superior by various virus-testing labs and all consistently score high marks for their effectiveness in virus scanning.
AhnLab is one of Asias leading providers of Antivirus and Content security software and services. It has achieved Anti-Virus Checkmark Level 1 and 2 and the Trojan Checkmark, which was designed to tell if antivirus solutions can detect the most common and dangerous malicious programs. As the ninth largest anti-virus software company in the world, AhnLab pioneers a comprehensive approach to integrated information technology security. AhnLab represents one of Asia's dominant forces in anti-virus solutions, with 65 percent of the anti-virus software market share in Korea.
Adding AhnLabs comprehensive antivirus technology to Antigen provides an additional layer of protection that further strengthens our ability to protect companies in the often overwhelming fight against viruses, worms and malicious code, said Joe Licari, vice president of product management for Sybari Software. AhnLab already provides excellent security for the messaging and collaboration environments of some of the largest networked organizations in Asia. Sybaris partnership with AhnLab builds on our continuing commitment to provide companies around the globe with the most comprehensive server-level antivirus solution on the market today.
