GLENDALE, Calif., April 6 /PRNewswire/ -- Panda Security, a leading global provider of IT security solutions, today announced that Panda Security for Desktops and Panda Managed Office Protection have obtained OESISOK Certification (www.OESISOK.com) in the antivirus and antispyware and firewall categories, respectively. This certification indicates that both Panda Security products integrate easily and completely with market-leading network devices.

The OESISOK Certification has several stages:

-- Installation Test - The application is installed on all supported operating systems and must complete the entire process without any error. -- Rogue Application Test - The application is then scanned against multiple leading anti-malware engines, where it is tested and confirmed as interoperable and not identified as a threat. -- OESIS(R) Local Detection Test- The application is checked to ensure it is detected by the OESIS Framework.

The following verification tests are performed for internal statistical data analysis:

-- Digital Signature Verification - All binaries installed as part of the application are checked and cataloged for a digital certificate; this catalog will then be made available to the public. -- Virus Scanning and Detection - The anti-malware application is tested on its ability to effectively detect viruses; the application is then validated against other anti-malware certification programs.

This comprehensive process assures that companies who buy Panda Security for Desktops or Panda Managed Office Protection will experience no complications when implementing these solutions on their networks.
