Panda GateDefender consolidates its position as a benchmark for SCM appliances

Panda GateDefender, the Panda Software solution for protecting the network perimeter, has consolidated its position as the benchmark for SCM (Secure Content Management) appliances, in a year in which it set new levels in terms of security management for any size of business.

Panda GateDefender, which offers complete anti-malware, anti-spam and content filtering protection, has received certification both from ICSA Labs and from the NSS Group, with its NSS Approved seal, testifying to the excellent quality and protection levels offered by the product. With the enhancement of the protection technologies, both reactive and proactive (thanks to the advanced Genetic Heuristic Engine), and the fine-tuning of the content filter, this solution has raised the security levels offered by this type of appliance to levels previously unattainable.

“This type of appliance is of critical importance to Panda Software, as it provides fundamental protection for the corporate network perimeter, the main entry point for malware,” explains Paula Quir??s, director of the Corporate Market Business Unit. “The release of three new versions last year is an example of the effort invested in this product. From our point of view, this product is alive, permanently adapting to offer maximum protection to our clients”.

One feature included in the latest version of particular interest to network administrators is the inclusion of a powerful tool offering real-time graphic reports of the appliance activity. These types of utilities are invaluable for calculating return on investment, a vital factor in feasibility studies. Network administrators now have a powerful aid for illustrating the enormous security benefits offered by Panda GateDefender’s protection against viruses, spyware, spam and all other threats.

The importance of this market sector to Panda Software is underlined by its creation of the Hardware plus Software Business Unit, in order to offer the best response to clients’ needs through dedicated personnel specialized in these types of products. “In this way we provide users with a complete service, not just a product, through a team of people with a thorough knowledge of both the solution and the clients’ needs,” says Paula Quir??s.
