Panda Software And Beginfinite Join Forces To Protect Novell Groupwise Servers

Panda Software, international antivirus software company, has announced that Panda Antivirus for Novell Netware, together with Beginfinite’s GWAVA, provides specific, comprehensive protection for Novell GroupWise against all types of virus and malicious code.

GroupWise is a groupware system designed to allow users to work together and share information across Novell server networks. Novell GroupWise servers generally perform the role of “information gateways” as they simply distribute information without storing it. This means that antivirus software cannot scan mail messages and therefore makes it considerably easier for an infected file to reach a workstation.

To resolve this situation messages need to be intercepted as they pass through the Novell GroupWise server, which is precisely what GroupWise Antivirus Agent (GWAVA) does. As it is designed specifically to operate jointly with Panda Antivirus for Novell Netware, it allows Panda Software’s antivirus solution to detect and eliminate any malicious code or virus that passes through the GroupWise server.

Panda Antivirus for Novell Netware integrates perfectly with Novell software and uses the most sophisticated antivirus technology to ensure detection and elimination of all malicious code.

Panda Antivirus for Novell Netware stands out not just for its powerful scanning capacity, but also for a series of features essential for combating the threat that viruses pose to today’s organizations, including daily automatic and incremental updates and centralized remote management and deployment through Panda Administrator.

Panda Antivirus for Novell Netware can carry out scheduled or “on-demand” scanning and has a customizable alert system to keep administrators informed, through Novell messages or SMTP mail, of any attempted virus attack.

“The joint approach with GWAVA means that Panda’s powerful antivirus for Novell will be able to fully benefit the numerous companies and organizations that use the GoupWise platform,” explains Pedro Bustamante, international marketing and communication director at Panda Software.

According to Charles Taite, Chief Technology Officer of Beginfinite, “Our company is proud of its new partnership with Panda Software. As virus threats evolve, customers demand the kind of best-of-breed solutions that GWAVA and Panda AntiVirus represent. Panda has a long history of delivering leading virus protection for Novell NetWare. GWAVA helps bring that leadership and level of protection to Novell GroupWise.”
