Panda Security, the Cloud Security Company, is set to launch Panda Cloud Internet Protection, a new cloud-based, SaaS (Security-as-a-Service) solution. This complete security service protects all corporate resources from Internet-borne threats, including botnets, phishing, cross-site scripting and other complex Web 2.0 attacks. It also offers P2P protection and browser vulnerability security.

Similarly, it includes a powerful access control feature, allowing businesses to filter URLs and regulate use of Web 2.0 applications (social networks, blogs, streaming, webmail and instant messaging). Panda Cloud Internet Protection leverages dynamic content classification technologies (DCCTM) to identify these applications. It also integrates with LDAP/AD for authentication.

This new solution also includes a module that detects and seals off information leaks through HTTP/HTTPS (including webmail, instant messaging, file uploads, etc.), thereby protecting confidential information and ensuring compliance with corporate security policies.

Security from the cloud with real-time centralized management

Panda Cloud Internet Protection is managed through a Web console that also offers real-time analysis and consolidated reports thanks to its NanoLog technology. This way, administrators can manage –from a single point– their entire network protection, including branch offices, remote and mobile users, as well as Web access from mobile devices connected to the corporate network.

No investment in software or hardware is required to install and deploy the solution, and implementation is launched through an extensive global network of servers to ensure reliability and optimum response times with latency of less than 15 microseconds.

The Panda Cloud Internet Protection technology platform is designed to support multi-user SaaS architecture. Log and policy management is centralized, yet policies themselves are executed on processing gateways around the world. Each gateway can administer 250,000 transactions per second, that is, 50 to 100 times more than other proxy servers.
