Checkmark Certification Program Expands in China
West Coast Labs has announced the expansion of its Checkmark Anti-Malware Certification program with an accreditation specifically for the China market and has issued the first certification of its kind to the country’s market-leading anti-virus developer - Rising Internet Security.
The China Anti-Malware Certification programme differs from the standard Checkmark accreditations in that it recognizes that there are specific and discrete forms of malware found in the China market. Its purpose is to test security technologies' detection capabilities of malware circulating in the greater China region.
"Rising Software strives to provide effective and efficient antivirus protection to users around the world by offering security solutions against malicious viruses, URL injection and Phishing websites that are widespread throughout Asia-Pacific region," said Julia Zhang, vice president, Beijing Rising Information Technology Co., Ltd.
"We have the responsibility to help customers defend the attacks from all sorts of viruses that spread via various channels. As the very first company in China to achieve Checkmark’s China Anti Malware accreditation, Rising receives additional validation of its technical strength in the area of computer security. We believe West Coast Labs' China Anti-Malware Certification establishes a new higher technical standard for the entire industry."
