I wrote recently about a service from Panda that provides a cost-effective antivirus and endpoint security solution for home offices and SMB’s–Panda Managed Office Protection. This week Panda rebranded and relaunched the service as Panda Cloud Protection.
Here is an excerpt from the Panda press release describing Panda Cloud Protection:
“Today’s security software solutions are too costly and difficult to manage for the vast majority of small and medium-sized businesses. Panda Cloud Protection is an incredibly lightweight managed security service that automates all maintenance tasks and allows SMBs to stay focused on their core business, while resting easy about safeguarding their digital assets and information. As a hosted service, Panda Cloud Protection optimizes resource consumption and eliminates the need for any investment in IT infrastructure. SMBs can benefit from a fully-outsourced security service, enabling them to easily monitor and maintain their own protection against malware from anywhere, anytime, or assign responsibility to a managed service provider (MSP).”
You can get more details on Panda Cloud Protection from this white paper.
In addition to the Panda Cloud Protection offering for SMB’s, Panda Security also unveiled Panda Cloud Antivirus–a free service to provide protection for consumer systems. Here is what Panda says about Panda Cloud Antivirus:
“Since its successful beta launch in April 2009, Panda Cloud Antivirus has received acclaim from industry experts and consumers for being the lightest free anti-malware service in the world. As it emerges out of beta, Panda Cloud Antivirus 1.0 offers improved protection against new and unknown viruses with even less impact on users’ PCs. Cloud Antivirus 1.0 provides 100 percent cloud-based protection against malware, spyware, rootkits and viruses. Panda Cloud Antivirus works with Windows XP (32bits), Windows Vista (32bits & 64 bits) and Windows 7 (32bits & 64 bits) operating systems and only consumes 20 MB of RAM. It is available in 11 languages and can be downloaded from http://www.cloudantivirus.com.”
