Panda Security was named a Visionary in the Gartner 2018 Magic Quadrant for Endpoint Protection Platforms1.

Panda Security as a Visionary

The report’s evaluation is based on their completeness of vision and their ability to execute.

According to Gartner, “Visionaries deliver in the leading-edge features — such as cloud management, managed features and services, enhanced detection or protection capabilities, and strong incident response workflows — that will be significant in the next generation of products, and will give buyers early access to improved security and management. Visionaries can affect the course of technological developments in the market, but they haven’t yet demonstrated consistent execution. Clients pick Visionaries for best-of-breed features.”

According to the report, “In the past 12 months, EPP solutions have continued on track to consume features from the EDR market, and some of the traditionally pure-play EDR vendors have continued to bolster their solutions with protection capabilities more often found in EPP. This trend of playing catch-up from two directions has resulted in a slew of vendors with similar capabilities and with little to differentiate themselves. Those that do differentiate do so with managed features backed by automation and human analysts; a focus on cloud-first management and reporting, and improving the operational side of IT with a focus on vulnerability protection and reporting; and, most importantly, pushing full-stack protection for EPP and EDR use cases to organizations of all sizes.”

Panda Adaptive Defense is the only solution available on the market that offers the full protection of a traditional antivirus, white listing, and protection against advanced threats all in one.

As stated in the Gartner research report, “Predicts 2018: Security Solutions”2: “By 2019, 45% of enterprises will manage data loss by leveraging CASBs and using encryption and EDRM techniques.”

“Panda Security is honored to be recognized as a Visionary in Gartner’s Magic Quadrant for Endpoint Protection Platforms as we strive to keep our customers protected against malware and non-malware attacks and turn endpoint activity data into insights and actionable intelligence. We believe this recognition is a proof of our success in achieving our mission and we look forward to bringing new innovative solutions and services in the space of advanced threat prevention, detection, investigation and threat response to Panda Security’s and our Channel Partners’ portfolio.”

Panda Security’s Cloud-Based Solution for Organizations

Panda Adaptive Defense 360 is Panda Security’s cloud-based solution that provides, in a single lightweight agent, the highest level of Endpoint preventive Protection, Detection and Response, reducing drastically the exposure surface to any kind of malware and non-malware attacks.

Its EDR capabilities are achieved thanks to the complete behavior visibility of all endpoints, users, files, processes, registries, memories and networks. On top of these EDR capabilities, Panda Adaptive Defense 360 provides two unique, out-of-the-box services:

  1. The 100% Attestation Service that provides the highest level of prevention ever, simply by allowing to run only those applications validated in real time by Panda without delegating the responsibility to administrators.
  2. And the Threat Hunting and Investigation Service that detects, contains and responds to any threats that were able to bypass other security controls.

All this takes place on Panda Adaptive Defense’s Cloud Platform that allows a seamless deployment and management on all endpoints inside and outside the network from a single console while reducing the total cost of setup and running.

According to Gartner in its research report, “Redefining Endpoint Protection for 2017 and 2018”3, “Organizations should pay particular attention to solutions that include managed services (or perhaps more accurately described as “managed features”) like threat hunting or file classification — those that reduce the administrative workload by automation and orchestration, and those that focus on lowering the knowledge and skills barrier through built-in contextualized threat hunting assistants, guided response tools and easy-to-understand-and-use user interfaces.”

Panda Security has been independently tested, with other EPP vendors, by AV-Comparatives with a consistent 100% detection rate during the last 6 months in a row.
