Panda launches virtualized perimeter protection

Panda Security has launched its new perimeter protection, Panda Virtual GateDefender Performa, which delivers cloud-based protection for VMWare virtualized environments.

Companies can now protect their perimeter by harnessing the virtualized servers already installed on most networks to provide an effective solution against all types of IT threats. This solution also offers major cost-savings compared to a traditional solution, distributed with the corresponding hardware.

“ Panda Virtual GateDefender Performa delivers high performance protection against all types of Internet-borne malware and spam” , says Jeremy Matthews, head of Panda’ s sub-Saharan operations. “ It blocks non-productive or potentially dangerousWeb activity using a hybrid security cloud in the perimeter, increasing the protection capacity and reducing resource usage to a minimum.”

The hybrid cloud used by the new virtual appliance combines a private cloud, hosted on a private network and which provides service to Panda GateDefender Performa and a public cloud, which provides service to a global network and also to the private cloud.

In this way, users benefit from the full knowledge potential of the cloud, thanks to its real-time connection to Collective Intelligence, an automatic system that detects, analyzes, classifies and detects 99.4% of the 73,000 new malware strains received every day by our antimalware laboratory, PandaLabs.

Leveraging of a hybrid cloud represents a significant step forward in perimeter security, as it gives companies total control over their data, including log files and registries, without this feature degrading the detection capacity. This means that no data is sent to the cloud for analysis, except for certain traces with a high level of encryption.

“ Panda Virtual GateDefender Performais the only SCM (Secure Content Management) solution that achieves the objectives of virtualized environments: cost efficiency, application consolidation and simplicity” , concludes Matthews.

The new Panda Virtual GateDefender Performa is available for trial at: http://www.pandasecurity.com/enterprise/solutions/virtual-gatedefender-performa/
