Panda Software presents DesktopSecure for Linux

Linux systems are becoming increasingly important, both for home use and in corporate environments. DesktopSecure protects both types of workstations with a solution that integrates the most advanced anti-malware protection, managed from a powerful graphic console.

“Today, protection for Linux workstations is essential,” explains Pedro Bustamante, director of the Corporate Software Business Unit. “With DesktopSecure, our clients can rest assured that all their network workstations are protected against malware that targets either Windows or Linux, guaranteeing their productivity and the integrity of their protection systems.”

This product consolidates network protection, as it includes not just anti-malware protection but also an enhanced firewall for workstations and an intrusion prevention system. This guarantees protection against network threats such as worms and other types of attack that would otherwise find Linux computers a potential weak point in corporate defenses. The final release version of DesktopSecure will be offered free to home users. This solution can be installed on all distributions of Linux and includes additional support for the most widely used distributions (Red Hat, SuSE, Debian and Fedora) in the corporate versions.

“Users finally have access to a completely integrated security solution designed exclusively for Linux and highly effective in protecting against the new generation of Internet threats,” says Pedro Bustamante.
