Global IT security vendor Panda Security showcased its recently launched cloud-based security solutions at the ITWeb Security Summit on 11-13 May.
Panda was a sponsor of the three-day annual conference and exhibition which brings together members of the local and international IT community to share their experiences as well as the latest tools and techniques available for safeguarding information.
“This was a great opportunity to show the future of IT security,” says Jeremy Matthews, head of Panda’s sub-Saharan operations. “Panda’s cloud-based technologies are fundamentally transforming the way SMBs protect their businesses from internet threats.”

Panda Cloud Protection is based on Panda’s Collective Intelligence system which utilises Panda’s millions of users as “malware sensors” that contribute to a vast database of malware – stored “in the cloud”. Collective intelligence is thus able to detect and block new strains from the cloud in almost real time. This means SMBs are protected from the newest and most dangerous malware.
