GLENDALE, Calif., July 28 /PRNewswire/ -- Panda Security, the Cloud Security Company, today announced the general availability of its new line of business security solutions, which includes Panda Security for Business, Panda Managed Office Protection, Panda Managed Email Protection, Panda GateDefender SB, and Panda GateDefender Performa. By integrating improved Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) functionality and leveraging Collective Intelligence across its corporate product portfolio, Panda continues to be at the forefront of cloud protection and SaaS for small and medium size businesses (SMBs).

According to leading analyst firm Forrester Research, the continued rise in targeted malware attacks infecting unsuspecting businesses will force security budgets to rise and focus on protecting data, streamlining costly or manually intensive tasks, and providing security for an evolving IT infrastructure. With this in mind, Panda's technology strategy provides business customers with comprehensive, proactive protection at minimal resource consumption levels and infrastructure investment requirements as compared with traditional endpoint security and managed services offerings.

"By incorporating some of the most advanced technologies in the market, our SMB and enterprise customers are benefiting from a complete line of corporate security solutions that cover all the primary vectors of malware infection including workstations and servers, email, and Web traffic," said Josu Franco, business customer unit director at Panda Security. "Leveraging SaaS and the cloud allows us to successfully protect against the burgeoning threat of cybercrime, while significantly reducing the resource consumption and complexity of security management."

Panda's new line of business security solutions include the following features and benefits:

-- Panda Security for Business: Panda Security's flagship product is a comprehensive endpoint security suite for protecting workstations and fileservers against all types of malware including viruses, rootkits, hackers, online fraud, identity theft and all other Internet threats. The new version includes considerable improvements to the management console and streamlined functionality around managing security updates. -- Panda Managed Office Protection: The latest version of Panda Security's hosted IT security service for SMBs and value added resellers (VARs) serving the SMB market is up to 50 percent more efficient than traditional endpoint security software. It increases overall business efficiency by eliminating the complexity and cost of maintaining traditional client-server corporate solutions and allowing business owners to concentrate on their organizational success. -- Panda Managed Email Protection: Panda Security's new SaaS clean mail service protects corporate email from spam and malware without additional hardware or software investment, thereby guaranteeing effective corporate malware and spam protection at the lowest total cost of ownership. This solution, which replaces the company's TrustLayer Mail service solution, includes a redesigned user interface, better spam and user policy administration and an email backup system that allows continued access to email in the event of a corporate email server failure. -- Panda GateDefender SB: As the only unified threat management (UTM) device that offers a simple "plug and forget" installation, this product is ideal for organizations of up to 50 employees. The product's easy-to-use web-based console has a simple graphic interface and offers total network perimeter protection. The business user-friendly management and competitive price point make it the most complete feature set in this market segment. -- Panda GateDefender Performa: The new version of this scalable and load-balancing perimeter security device has improved anti-spam capabilities based on enhanced functionality that protects against novel threats such as backscatter. Its capability to detect infected machines inside the network perimeter that may be sending spam outside the organization (as is the case with PCs that have become zombies) allows businesses to immediately counteract such invasive security breaches.
