Panda Software Launches the New TruPrevent Technologies for Corporate Environments: Protecting Networks Against Unknown Viruses And Intruders

IT threats are becoming increasingly fast and sophisticated. The recent Sasser epidemic is just one example. This worm exploited a Windows vulnerability to infect millions of computers in just a few hours. This was not an isolated case however: other viruses like MyDoom or SQLSlammer have shown that it is possible to create a virus that can act far quicker than any human reaction capacity. This is compounded by the fact that current antivirus systems are reactive and although effective against known threats, they need to be updated in order to neutralize this new kind of threat.

The only solution to this type of threat lies in the use of preventive solutions that can pre-empt and block them as they try to enter or leave the system. Panda Software has been working for several years in this direction and the result of this development effort is TruPrevent Technologies.

Just like a good detective, TruPrevent Technologies analyze suspicious behavior in programs and automatically block them intelligently with no need for human intervention and without having to ask users any questions. This characteristic also represents a bonus for administrators as it simplifies network management tasks.

The combination of traditional security systems and antivirus protection with the new TruPrevent Technologies has created a new benchmark in levels of security against the increasing number of Internet threats, including unknown viruses and intruders. The new TruPrevent Technologies and their implementation in a corporate network act as the prefect complement to traditional antivirus solutions. This is why TruPrevent Technologies are compatible with any antivirus product from developers other than Panda Software. The net result is simply greater security for the corporate network.

TruPrevent Technologies are designed to act against unknown viruses and intruders, evolving through time and adapting to new threats that jeopardize users’ systems. These technologies include:

– Behavior-based virus detection. Detection and blocking of unknown worms and Trojans on the basis of the analysis of the behavior of processes executed on the computer. This involves monitoring any processes that are initiated, and blocking them if they are dangerous, thus stopping the spread of worms over corporate networks. This technology makes it possible to stop infections of the types caused by malware such as BugBear, Nimda, Klez, SirCam or LoveLetter, even if these have not previously been identified.

– Malicious network packet detector. This technology is able to detect and block packets with malicious content whenever they attempt to enter or leave a network computer and protects network services against attempts to exploit vulnerabilities, acting as a complement to other technologies. This would have prevented epidemics such as those caused by SQLSlammer, Code Red or Sasser.

– Protection against buffer overflows. These vulnerabilities are now common flaws in many applications and they are one of the most widely-used ways of launching attacks against IT systems. Such attacks are based on over-running part of the memory used by the application with more data than it can hold. So once attackers know the quantity of data needed to overflow the buffer, they overrun the memory with executable code containing the attack code. TruPrevent Technologies protect against this kind of vulnerability.

– Definition of security policies. This module gives TruPrevent Technologies great flexibility as it offers administrators and users the means to personalize security policies in accordance with specific resources or conditions. This allows companies to implement and monitor a policy throughout the company, including tracking of all denied and permitted action.

In addition to this proactive protection, TruPrevent Technologies incorporate a system for eliminating the residual effects of unknown attacks and infections. This recovers the settings for any computers which have been affected by a virus, worm or intruder, thus repairing changes to filenames, removing new registry entries, etc.

TruPrevent Technologies are included in AdminSecure, the tool developed for administering TruPrevent Technologies remotely from a centralized point. With AdminSecure, installation, configuration, updates or maintenance of the protection against unknown viruses and intruders is both secure and straightforward in both WANs and LANs.

Panda Software solutions for defending corporate networks

Th new TruPrevent Corporate, compatible with corporate antivirus solutions from developers other than Panda Software, is paart of a range of solutions designed to protect companies against all kinds of Internet-borne threats, including unknown viruses and intruders, thanks to the incorporation of the new TruPrevent Technologies.

In addition to TruPrevent Technologies, the protection for workstations is the most comprehensive on the market, and includes both award-winning antivirus solutions as well as protection against spam, spyware and hacking tools .

Large companies can rely on the new EnterpriSecure with TruPrevent Technologies, which protects every element of the computer network, regardless of topology.

SMEs can opt for the new BusinesSecure with TruPrevent Technologies to protect their workstations and files servers, or they can choose BusinesSecure Exchange with TruPrevent Technologies if they also need protection for their Exchange mail servers.

To defend workstations, there is Panda Software’s ClientShield with TruPrevent Technologies, a simple yet powerful solution for combating Internet-borne threats including new and unknown viruses and intruders.

Panda Software clients who currently have user licenses for EnterpriSecure and BusinesSecure Antivirus can upgrade to the new products with TruPrevent Technologies on highly favorable terms.
