Korean firm stands out in AV-Test Evaluation in 2023

South Korea’s leading cyber security company AhnLab said on March 9 that its mobile security solution had received a perfect score in the AV-TEST 2023.

Its V3 Mobile Security received full marks of six for each criterion and 18 points in total in the test, which was carried out in January, to receive certification.

Included in the three criteria were protection, performance, and usability.

AhnLab’s V3 Mobile Security is the only Korean mobile security solution that has been participating in every mobile security solution evaluation by “AV-TEST.”

It has been certified every time, with a total of 61 consecutive certifications from January 2013 to January 2023. 

“With the recent discovery of malicious apps impersonating famous apps even on the official app store, smartphone security threats are becoming more complex,” AhnLab senior official Kim Chang-hee said.

“AhnLab will strive to create a safe mobile environment using our technical skills that have been acknowledged with the most certifications in the mobile sector of AV-TEST in Korea.”

Founded in 1995, AhnLab has grown into one of the global leaders in cyber threat analysis. It has delivered comprehensive protection for endpoints, networks, transactions, and other services.
