Panda Security Launches New UTM Appliance For SMBs

Updated Panda GateDefender Integra includes new model for companies with as few as 50 employees
GLENDALE, Calif., June 16 /PRNewswire/ -- Panda Security, the Cloud Security Company, today announced the availability of its unified threat management (UTM) appliance, Panda GateDefender Integra. Designed for small to mid-sized businesses (SMBs), the UTM appliance is available in two models: Panda GateDefender Integra SB, a new model designed exclusively for businesses with up to 50 employees and Panda GateDefender Integra 300, for companies with between 50 and 250 stations. Both include the following protection:

-- Firewall: Ensures internal and external communication complies with the security policy -- Intrusion prevention system (IPS): Prevents intrusion attacks -- VPN: Protects confidential information transmitted across the Internet -- Anti-malware: Protects against all types of malicious software -- Content filter: Scans inbound and outbound traffic for dangerous content -- Anti-spam: Keeps email traffic free from junk mail -- Web filter: Restricts access to non work-relatedWeb content

"Some 99 percent of threats affecting corporate networks are transmitted across the Internet," said Josu Franco, Corporate Customer Unit Director at Panda Security. "These threats are increasingly varied and complex, heightening the risk for SMBs. This means that the Internet gateway is a critical security point for any network. Panda GateDefender Integra offers SMBs centralized perimeter prevention against all types of threats, protecting companies from the moment it's plugged in."

Panda GateDefender Integra is the only "Plug and Protect" UTM on the market. Anti-malware, anti-spam and Web filtering protection are enabled by default on installation, protecting the company right from the start with no need for manual intervention. It also boasts continuous automatic updates. Rules and digital signatures in the malware, IPS and Web Filter are updated every 90 minutes; and spam files are updated every minute. These updates are performed in the cloud, leveraging Collective Intelligence, a suite of proprietary technologies that can detect and analyze threats automatically, resulting in greater speed and better protection against Internet threats.

Panda GateDefender Integra also optimizes bandwidth usage by restricting access to non-productive Web content. Similarly, the high spam detection ratio rids mail servers and internal networks of traffic caused by junk mail. Finally, the proactive content protection which scans inbound and outbound traffic for dangerous content also prevents confidential information from leaking out of the company.
