• Panda Cloud Office Protection, Panda Security’s solution for protecting workstations and file servers, has been awarded the top rating from PC Magazine/Russian Edition

Panda Security, The Cloud Security Company, today announced that Panda Cloud Office Protection, the cloud-based security solution for protecting workstations and file servers, has received a perfect five-star rating by PC Magazine/Russian Edition.

Panda Cloud Office Protection is a security service that provides reliable, centralized antivirus and firewall protection for workstations, laptops and file servers. The solution can be managed remotely -anytime from anywhere- through its Web-based management console.

PC Magazine/RE recognized the solution’s simplicity of installation and configuration. Companies do not have to set up an in-house infrastructure for the corporate antivirus -console, administration server and repository-, as everything is hosted on Panda Security’s servers. This is extremely convenient for small and medium-sized companies, which often lack the budget and the personnel resources required to manage security.

The magazine also praised Panda Cloud Office Protection for its intuitive and straightforward local-language interface as well as the ability to create security policies and user profiles quickly and effortlessly based on standard or custom settings. Installing local agents on computers is also quite simple and can de done remotely. Besides, PCOP allows users to easily distribute the agent with standard third-party deployment methodology (SMS, Tivoli, login scripts, etc.), and even via emails containing the installation link.

Panda Cloud Office Protection was also lauded for its ease of use. According to the PC Magazine/RE editors, “This is extremely important, especially in comparison with other antivirus packages which could be best described as ‘monsters’. The unique cloud-based Collective Intelligence technology allows users to transfer resource-intensive processes to the cloud, which minimizes the antivirus impact on computer speed and performance. Panda Cloud Office Protection can stop any threats even on older and low-resource computers.”

An important advantage of Panda Cloud Office Protection is its high detection capabilities, supported by cloud-based Collective Intelligence and advanced heuristic protection, which have also been praised by PC Magazine/RE.
