Panda GateDefender – effective threat detection certified by ICSA Labs
Panda GateDefender, the Panda Software solution for protecting network perimeters, has recently been certified by the prestigious ICSA Labs for its effective threat detection within the test protocol designed by the company to evaluate performance of gateway devices.
Before receiving certification, devices undergo a series of ICSA Labs tests, including evaluation of the effectiveness of the appliance in combating “In the wild’ list viruses (they must achieve 100%), as well as 100 percent of ICSA Labs’ Common Infectors and False Positive test suites. The device must also be capable of detecting viruses compressed with PKZip or in mails encoded using UUencode and MIME, logging all actions while scanning.
“ICSA Labs certification further endorses the outstanding quality of Panda GateDefender as a perimeter protection solution”, says Paula Quir??s, director of corporate business units at Panda Software. “The importance of these types of solutions is key to ensuring effective network protection, as they are the main malware entry point and should therefore be the first area to be protected within the corporate structure.”
ICSA Labs is an independent division of Cybertrust Corporation, an independent company which for 15 years has provided clients and partners with IT security market information. Its intelligence division, ICSA Labs, is a global reference point for certification, having tested and certified 95% of security software on the market.
