From Beta Services, we would like to share with you the availability of the new beta version 5.50 of Panda Cloud Office Protection

Panda Cloud Office Protection is a security solution for PCs and servers based on the concept of  Software as a Service (SaaS). Software as a Service lets companies focus on their core business, freeing them from the management tasks and operating costs associated with traditional security solutions.

It prevents companies from having to invest in additional hardware, maintenance personnel and other resources dedicated to anti-malware protection while achieving high level security, even in remote offices, with minimum resource consumption.

The Web-based administration console allows centralized management of computer protection anytime from anywhere through single-sign-on.

Panda Cloud Office Protection offers an innovative way to manage security, as it automates all maintenance tasks. This lets many small businesses forget about security management or outsource it quickly and easily with no impact on the user.

Panda Cloud Office Protection is complemented with periodic security audits benefiting from Panda’s exclusive Collective Intelligence Technologies.

Besides, the Web Console of Administration for Service Providers allows the remote and centralized efficient management of the clients security.

Among others, these are some of the new features of this version:

A. Panda Cloud Partner Center improvements and new features

The new partner console, Panda Cloud Partner Center, has been designed so that all our partners can perform all the operations they need to manage their clients both commercially and in terms of security.

Panda Cloud Partner Center is the evolution of the partner console from Panda Cloud Office Protection.

This new solution enables the management of licenses and clients of Panda Cloud Office Protection, Panda Cloud Email Protection and Panda Cloud Protection (some of the features of Panda Cloud Partner Center are not available in the beta version. BTW, it is possible to perform a visual review of them).

Among others, these are some of the new features Panda Cloud Partner Center includes:

Viewing licenses in the console.

Assigning licenses to clients.

Creating a new client.

Importing license packs.

Trials for new clients.

Access to the partner console for Panda Cloud Email Protection.

Compatibility with new browsers:
1. End of support for Internet Explorer 6.0. The console is optimized for Internet Explorer 7.0 or later.
2. Support for Firefox 4

B. Administration Web Console improvements and new features

Remote access to computers using remote control tools.

Nowadays, when the administrator sees errors in one of the supervised computers, or if he wants to look at something in them, there is no tool to access the computers from the console.

In this new version 5.50 of Panda Cloud Office Protection, the administrators have the option to access their computers using remote control Tools previously installed in the computers.

The remote access is allowed using one of these Remote Control tools: Team Viewer, RealVNC, UltraVNC, TightVNC and LogmeIn.
