SEOUL -- LG CNS, the information technology wing of South Korea's LG Group, has partnered with AhnLab, a cybersecurity solution developer, to cooperate in online security businesses that target the rapidly growing global cloud computing service market.

According to Deloitte, an international market consulting and research firm, the proportion of total on-premise workload is expected to stand at 38 percent in 2021, meaning that about 62 percent of workload will be covered remotely via cloud services. Currently, Microsoft, Amazon, and Google are the top players in the global cloud market.

LG CNS has signed a cooperation agreement with AhnLab to develop security solution packages for cloud services and jointly roll out cloㅕd security businesses. LG CNS said its experience in cybersecurity for various industrial sectors will create synergy with AhnLab's vast data.

"We will work closely with the cybersecurity specialist AhnLab to create a technology cooperation ecosystem so that we can provide cloud security services which our customers can trust," LG CNS Vice President Hyun Shin-kyun was quoted as saying.

To beef up anti-hacking capabilities, LG CNS operates a special team of white hackers who are online watchmen searching and fortifying weak points to preclude cyber attacks.
