China's Qihoo 360 Establishes Enterprise Security Group

Chinese Internet security provider Qihoo 360 announced the establishment of a new enterprise security group.

Qi Xiangdong, president of Qihoo 360, will be chief executive officer of this new enterprise security group. Financial details, including capitalization structure for the technology business, were not made available by the company.

Using the research resources of Qihoo 360's mobile security research institute, network security research institute, network attack and defense lab, and vulnerability Research Lab, the enterprise security group aims to provide security solutions and services to enterprise users throughout China.

Qihoo 360 also released its new product named "SkyEye", which features a big data-based unknown threat sensing system. It can help large enterprise customers in the government, finance, and energy sectors discover and track unknown threats.

According to Tan Xiaosheng, technology vice president of Qihoo 360, while providing security solutions to enterprises, Qihoo 360 also offers a full range of security services, including security consulting, security operation and maintenance, and security training.

Earlier this month, Qihoo was accused of fraudulent activities in relation to its anti-virus services. At least three of the world's top testing laboratories — Virus Bulletin, AV-Comparatives and AV-Test Institute — revoked certifications for Qihoo 360's products because of the alleged cheating. The bodies stated that Qihoo 360 provided one set of results for certification, but then provided consumers a version of the software that had a "considerably lower level of protection".
