HSINCHU, Taiwan, Jun 03, 2014 — Lionic Corporation, a worldwide supplier of innovative network security solutions, today announced an intelligent anti-virus solution for gateways in the connected home.
Hackers consistently pose a threat, developing viruses that can compromise systems and identities. The threat of viruses can come from anywhere from bogus anti-virus software that contains a hidden virus to websites that pose as respected institutions requesting users’ personal information as part of an identity theft scam. In short, the Internet is not a secure place by any means, and even those that consider themselves to be tech savvy have unknowingly allowed viruses to access the devices they use on-the-go as well as the home.
The Lionic Anti-Virus Solution will now be offered in home gateways based on Qualcomm Atheros, Inc.’s, a subsidiary of Qualcomm Incorporated, Qualcomm® Internet Processor (IPQ) to provide enhanced target throughput performance to detect millions of known viruses. The solution works in real-time across multiple operating systems monitoring for potential threats all while offering the lowest footprint.
