NPCore is taking part in global start-up accelerating program by PTT in Thailand
APT double defense solution company, NPCore, is participating in the Thailand start-up accelerating program D-NEXT to enter the Thai market. D-NEXT is a start-up accelerating program jointly organized by RISE, startup accelerator, and PTT group which is the only company from Thailand listed in Fortune Global 500 companies. It provides comprehensive support for global start-ups such as partner matching, local marketing, and holding a demo-day, intensively training them during the three-month boot camp period. The goal is to help global start-ups successfully enter the Thai market and to stimulate Thailand's start-up ecosystem and economy. More than 300 start-ups from around the world had applied for a boot camp but only 15 start-ups were selected. NPCore is the only Korean company among the finalists. NPCore has been accepted as a leader in the field of cyber security by recognizing its excellence in APT attack defense technology and is opening up new markets in Thailand with innovative start-ups from the US, Singapore, Philippines, Malaysia and other countries. The kick-off meeting was held on May 2, at Amarin Tower in Bangkok. The event featured lectures from PTT and RISE representatives and the elevator pitch of each start-up (appealing for products or services to be sold within a short time within 3 minutes). On this day, NPCore’s CEO Seung-Chul Han presented ZombieZERO Series, which can cope effectively with APT security threats which are increasing worldwide. While signature-based legacy security solutions are vulnerable to zero-day (unprotected sections before the development of vaccines after an attack), NPCore's ZombieZero Series provide behavior-based analysis so that they can detect and block new and variant malicious code in advance. In particular, NPCore has proposed a sophisticated security system that not only protects the network, but also attacks through the encryption section and bypassing virtual machines through applying EDR (End Point Detection & Response) technology. As information security has become a hot topic in Southeast Asia, the pitch has received great attention from Thai business and global start-up officials. In addition to participating in the D-NEXT program, NPCore is continuing to meet with local partners and demonstrate its products, and plans to actively exploit business opportunities in the Thailand and Southeast Asian markets.
