Panda boosts SaaS
Global IT security vendor Panda Security says version 5.03 of its security-as-a-service (SaaS) solution saves companies 50% of security costs.
The Panda Managed Office Protection is installed via the Internet and offers complete management of company security, regardless of the number of remote offices or mobile workers.
According to the security vendor, the solution also allows security management to be outsourced to partners offering this service, with access via the Web to real-time reports and network monitoring.
Jeremy Matthews, head of Panda's sub-Saharan operations, 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, adds Matthews, include the sending of detection warnings through an SMTP server with authentication, the management of licences with several maintenance contracts, and improvements regarding the creation of reports and monitoring tools.
Version 5.03 is compatible with Windows Small Business Server 2000/2003/2008 and Windows Home Server.
