As there had been incidents involving the corporate network, the internal network security became more important. PIOLINK (www.PIOLINK.com, President Young C. Cho) presented its Security Switch as the optimal solution after stating that there should be more active countermeasures for the security at the network level which is near to users.
WannaCry is the ransomware which aimed at vulnerabilities of the SMB shared folders. The threat can be spread over the whole network as the attacks are initiated from the inside of the network and PCs are affected. As the number of security threats from internal networks is increasing along with the possibility of variants, PIOLINK Security Switch is considered to be one of the best solutions for preventing attacks which are started from user devices.
Especially, with the feature of controlling abnormal SMB traffic, PIOLINK Security Switch can block the attacks on the SMB vulnerabilities while preventing the spread of attacks throughout the network.
Kyeong Heon Lee, the head of the Business Planning Division, stated “For the security of corporate networks, it is important to update each person’s computer. However, the security cannot be maintained if this becomes the individual’s role. There should be more effective countermeasures as almost all people use wireless devices along with their computers,” and emphasized, “PIOLINK Security Switch is the optimal solution to prepare the networks to respond to various forms of attacks on both wired and wireless devices.”
