Malaysia, Petaling Jaya (20 February 2014) – K Now Distribution Sdn Bhd and TECH TITAN Sdn Bhd, both establishments focusing in the area of IT security solutions unveiled its latest product offering TitanWALL, an appliance-based firewall safeguarding against malware and threats. TitanWALL by TECH TITAN is powered by Kaspersky Lab, one of the fastest growing IT security vendors in the world.
TitanWALL combines network security, Anti-Virus and firewall within one appliance that comes with dual Anti-Virus signature databases and dual Anti-Virus engines powered by Kaspersky Lab and TECH TITAN.
TitanWALL offers ultra-high performance, deep packet inspection and can block the latest attack variances that include viruses, worms, spyware and many other malware types effectively.
Based on information from Kaspersky Lab, the risk from malware is increasing as the company is detecting 315,000 new malicious files every day, versus 200,000 the year before. An average of 4.6 million attacks on users were repelled every day whenever users were online. Statistics gathered from Kaspersky shows that in 2013, the security powerhouse neutralized close to 5.2 billion cyber-attacks on users’ devices.
Based on the increasing threat from malware, Small and Medium Businesses (SMBs) should evaluate their exposure to these risks and consider the effects of malware attacks on their business.
According to Mr. Dobson Beh, Country Manager of K Now Distribution Sdn Bhd, the authorized distributor for TitanWALL, Malaysian SMBs need an affordable appliance-based firewall with anti-virus capabilities to safeguard their data and their business.
“A significant percentage of SMBs in Malaysia are highly exposed to malware as many of their employees use their own devices be it mobile phones, tablets or laptops for work without any protection for the organisation’s data. This Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) movement can be dangerous for organization that do not have proper protection such as a superior firewall solution that has MultiDevice Management and Anti-Virus capabilities. TitanWALL provides the protection and management capabilities to keep SMBs valuable data protected and well-managed,” Mr Beh said.
“TitanWALL is equipped with the most advanced and dynamic anti-malware technologies from two well established IT Security Solution providers, Kaspersky Lab and TECH TITAN for increased protection for SMBs. Hybrid firewall solutions such as TitanWALL are easy to manage and provide greater functionality and practicality for SMBs who often do not have dedicated IT personnel”, explained K Now Distribution’s Business Development Manager, Mr. William Chow.
TitanWALL Key Features Ideal for Enterprises Businesses of all sizes
“Based on the data obtained from IDC, the research shows that the security appliance market is still evolving, despite its maturity in certain solutions. This provides us with lots of opportunities as more companies are paying close attention to sound IT network infrastructure, compliance with regulatory requirements as well as looking for easy to manage solutions,” said Mr. Beh.
He added, “We have 3 unique programs for this new offering from K Now:-
- TitanWALL Early Adaptor Program – targeting NEW customers

Each of these programs are distinctively created targeting each base set.”
1. Hybrid Protection
TitanWALL is featured with ‘hybrid’ protection that combines traditional anti-malware tools with technologies from Kaspersky Lab. These protection technologies are based on data gathered within the framework of the Kaspersky & TECH TITAN with over 100 million database signatures. Dual Anti-Virus engine hybrid provides protection against the very latest threats.
2. Stream-based Algorithms for better performance
TitanWALL employs packet based scanning (Stream-Based) which provides virus scanning on data buffers without waiting for entire file to be received by the appliance, whereas the file-based scanning done by full antivirus can only start virus scanning when entire file is received. This actually provides the fastest speed for virus scanning process. Thus it would not affect on your business network traffic. This would result to a more stable, effective and secure user’s environment.

TitanWALL supports all common forms of site-to-site VPN via IPSec. TitanWALL supports both VPN fail over and fall back mechanisms.
