Cloud-based protection for virtualized environments
Panda Security launchd Panda Virtual GateDefender Performa which delivers cloud-based protection for VMWare virtualized environments.
Companies can now protect their perimeter by harnessing the virtualized servers already installed on most networks to provide an effective solution against all types of IT threats.
Panda Virtual GateDefender Performa protection against all types of Internet-borne malware and spam and blocks non-productive or potentially dangerous Web activity using a hybrid security cloud in the perimeter, increasing the protection capacity and reducing resource usage to a minimum.
The hybrid cloud used by the new virtual appliance combines a private cloud, hosted on a private network which provides service to Panda Virtual GateDefender Performa; and a public cloud, which provides service to a global network and private cloud (Collective Intelligence) as well.
Users benefit from the full knowledge potential of the cloud, thanks to its real-time connection to Collective Intelligence, an automatic system that detects, analyzes, classifies and detects 99.4 percent of the 73,000 new malware strains received every day by PandaLabs.
Leveraging of a hybrid cloud also represents a significant step forward in perimeter security, as it gives companies total control over their data, including log files and registries. Without this feature, detection capacity is degraded, meaning that no data is sent to the cloud for analysis, except for certain traces with high levels of encryption.
