Exactly which protocols does Panda GateDefender Performa protect?

Information applies to:

Panda GateDefender Performa 8050
Panda GateDefender Performa 8100
Panda GateDefender Performa 8200

To go to the screen with the settings for the protocols protected by Panda GateDefender Performa follow these instructions:

  1. Click on Protection settings.
  2. Got to Anti-malware protection.
  3. Select Antivirus protection.

    In this screen you can configure:

    • The protocols that Panda GateDefender Performa should scan for viruses.
    • The file extensions that should be included in, or excluded from scans.
    • Action that Panda GateDefender Performa should take on detecting malicious code.

Protocols to scan

Panda GateDefender Performa intercepts and scans HTTP, FTP, SMTP, POP3, IMAP and TNP traffic, searching for viruses, worms and Trojans.

If you uncheck the box that appears next to each of these protocols in the antivirus protection settings screen, Panda GateDefender will cease to scan that protocol.

Note: The protocols settings in the antivirus protection settings window will also automatically apply to the following protection: anti-jokes, anti-spyware, anti-dialers and content filtering.

The system uses the standard port to intercept and filter traffic for each of the protocols. However, it is possible to enter additional ports for each of the protocols. In this way, communication will be scanned both in standard ports and in the additional ones.


Default Port


80, 8080











Panda GateDefender Performa will not allow the following ports to be entered:

  • Ports above 65535.
  • Standard ports: traffic through these ports is always scanned. These are defined as factory settings and used by default.
  • Ports included for other protocols.

Traffic that doesn’t use any of the standard ports or any of the additional ports included in this section will not be scanned. For this reason it is important to configure it correctly.
