The Advantages of Having a Managed Security Service

In the corporate environment, cyber-threats are becoming more and more sophisticated, security standards more complex and budgets tighter and tighter.

The world of technology in the workplace is no longer just restricted to servers, workstations or email accounts – instead we need to consider mobile devices and the culture of BYOD (Bring Your Own Device). Companies also need to be aware of problems that may arise from new trends such as social media and the impact that all of this can have on the security of our corporate networks.

This places great stress on businesses when it comes to the monitoring and management of information security.

Panda Security Launches Adaptive Defense 360

With more than 230,000 new malware samples daily and more sophisticated infection techniques, businesses are facing increased threats that put their confidential information at risk and leave them in compromising situations. Adaptive Defense 360 is Panda’s latest solution that covers all that a traditional anti-virus can’t.

It combines two of Panda’s star solutions in one console:

  • Panda Endpoint Protection Plus is our EPP (Endpoint Protection Platform) solution and comes with all of the features of a traditional protection: anti-virus, anti-malware, personal firewall, web and mail filtering, and device management.
  • Panda Adaptive Defense, our EDR (Endpoint Protection & Response) solution, adds detection and automated response, continuous monitoring and real-time forensic analysis – which results in the complete strengthening and securing of the endpoint.

Ransomware on the Rise – PandaLabs Quarterly Report

The second quarter of 2015 shows that there was an average of 230 000 new malware samples created daily, totaling 21 million from April to June. This is a 43% increase in comparison to the second quarter of 2014.

Trojans continue to be the most common type of malware and are the main source of infection, with 76.25% of users infected. This quarter also showed the proliferation of PUPs (Potentially Unwanted Programs) which accounted for 14.39% of infections.

There has been a dramatic increase in ransomware over the last few months. What users don’t realise is that these kinds of attacks will continue to grow, as long as companies and consumers succumb to paying the ransom – this should be a last resort.
