Panda SaaS solution saves 50% of security costs
Global IT security vendor Panda Security has launched version 5.03 of Panda Managed Office Protection (PMOP), its security as a service (SaaS) solution. This new version includes a series of new features for companies (end-clients) as well as partners and VARs.
PMOP is easily and rapidly installed across the Internet. It offers complete management of company security, regardless of the number of remote offices or mobile workers. It also allows security management to be outsourced to partners offering this service, with simple and rapid access via the Web at all times to real-time reports and network monitoring.
“We project that clients will save up to 50% when using this solution as opposed to installing a traditional security solution,” says Jeremy Matthews, head of Panda's sub-Saharan operations. “This way, companies can focus on their core business without worrying about security, and possible productivity and competitivity problems derived from infections.”
Matthews says the new features for companies include the possibility to select different types of reports to be sent to different groups by administrators. Other features implemented in version 5.03 of Panda Managed Office Protection include the sending of detection warnings through an SMTP server with authentication, the management of licences with several maintenance contracts and numerous improvements regarding the creation of reports and the monitoring tools.
Similarly, this new version includes many new features for partners and VARs, such as the automatic sending of reports (daily, weekly or monthly), the option for enabling/disabling remote updates, choosing the default language for clients' protection and centralised viewing from the service provider console.
The new version 5.03 is also compatible with Windows Small Business Server 2000/2003/2008 and Windows Home Server.
Panda Managed Office Protection got the highest rating (5 stars out of 5) in the latest review carried out by PC World. The Spanish magazine highlighted ease of use and the ability to manage from a single console. The product has also been awarded the Editor's Choice seal in a comparative review by PC Magazine's Dutch and Belgian edition.
