As soon as you register and activate Panda GateDefender Integra via the Internet, you can benefit from the maximum protection provided by the protection modules integrated in the appliance: Anti-malware, anti-spam, web filtering, content-filter, firewall, IPS and VPN. Panda GateDefender also offers services such as anti-malware scanning, filtering rules and the option to establish VPN tunnels. All of these aim to intercept and scan all the traffic that passes through the appliance, according to the settings defined.
However, if you do not correctly register the appliance, it will act completely transparently in the network, without intercepting any type of traffic. Therefore, communications will not be scanned for malware or spam and you cannot establish VPN tunnels or filter traffic. What's more, the protection modules are only updated if the appliance has been correctly activated and registered. It is essential to regularly update the rules and signature files of the following modules:
- Anti-malware module, Anti-spam module, Web filtering module and IPS module.
If the license is in order, these actions can be carried out via the Internet and completely automatically from Panda’s servers replicated worldwide.
