AhnLab Raises New Blockchain Business
AhnLab announced on the 29th that it recorded 3.745 billion won in operating profit in the second quarter, down 17% from the same period last year. Sales rose 14 percent to 54.2 billion won, while net profit fell 96 percent to 328 million won.
While the existing cloud and solution businesses cruised, the operating profit fell significantly due to investments in new businesses such as blockchain.
In the second quarter of this year, along with the steady growth of V3, AhnLab DPX, a dedicated solution for DDoS, and AhnLab Cloud, a cloud management service, recorded high growth, AhnLab said. “Although investment in technology manpower and development of its subsidiaries, which was launched in April, there will be no problem in achieving its overall goal this year.”
