Panda Software to release its Antivirus Service Update for Microsoft ISA Server 2004

MADRID, February 25, 2004

Panda Software has announced plans for its small business and enterprise suites to support Microsoft Internet Security and Acceleration Server (ISA) 2004 when it is available later this year.

The Panda ISASecure Antivirus module has been designed to help further protect Internet traffic passing through ISA Servers. The product scans and disinfects, using a Web (ISAPI) or application filter, files in all formats sent and received through HTTP and SMTP as they pass through the ISA Server. It is an ideal complement for the protection by the firewall and proxy server modules in ISA Server 2004 and includes an innovative content filtering module.

Pedro Bustamante, Marketing Division manager at Panda Software explained, “We are truly excited about working with Microsoft and offering security support for the new mail gateways. There can be no doubt that ISA Server 2004 will be a landmark in efficient and effective network security, and Panda Software is proud to provide advanced technology in virus and intrusion prevention through its flagship corporate solutions: Panda EnterpriSecure and Panda BusinesSecure with Exchange. These have been developed using Microsoft’s new Virus Scanning API, guaranteeing complete integration without affecting e-mail server performance”.

“The beta availability of ISA Server 2004 offers Panda Software a solid structure from which they can develop innovative and robust solutions to provide the best protection against Internet threats at the network perimeter”, concludes Bustamante. “The Panda ISASecure Antivirus module will help customers who use ISA Server 2004 to achieve a higher level of antivirus security in the enterprise,” said David Gardner, Business Development Manager in the Security Business and Technology Unit at Microsoft Corp.

Panda ISASecure Antivirus can be purchased separately or as part of Panda EnterpriSecure Antivirus. This solution is designed for large and medium-sized organizations with multi-platform network resources and companies that need centralized administration of the protection through security policies deployed across the network.
