Panda Tops Cloud Security Market with 35 Awards Worldwide

  • Company honored with 35 awards worldwide for outstanding achievements in technology innovation and sales strategies
  • Cloud products achieve extraordinary market adoption, surpassing industry average 

Panda Security, The Cloud Security Company, announced end of year results in awards and market traction for the company’s cloud product line that serves small and medium sized businesses (SMBs) as well as consumers. In 2010, Panda Security secured 35 awards from recognized authorities on technology and business innovation, including the Wall Street Journal, CRN, PC World and AV Comparatives.

“Panda has always been ahead of the market in technology innovation and 2010 was no exception”, says Juan Santana, CEO of Panda. “At the beginning of the year, we set out to extend our position as a cloud security leader through a continued commitment to R&D and a focus on increasing the adoption of our cloud products for SMBs.”

“We attribute Panda’s success to our award-winning solutions and a highly diversified sales strategy that targets organizations with anywhere between 5 and 60,000 seats”, says Jeremy Matthews, head of Panda’s sub-Saharan operations. “Panda’s strong business momentum for the year coupled with independent recognition from the Wall Street Journal, CRN, PC World and many others, proves that our strategy is working”, he concludes.

The Panda Cloud Protection product line, which secures endpoints and servers, email and Web threat vectors, has grown well above the industry average growth rate for cloud-based security services in 2010. Income from these products grew 65% over the previous year and now represents 15% of the company’s total worldwide revenues. Panda expects this number to exceed 20% by the end of 2011. This compares to industry-wide revenue growth for SaaS (Software as a Service), which made up only 10% of total security services revenue in 2009, with this figure not projected to surpass 20% until 2014, according to market research firm Infonetics.

While the full list of accolades may be found on the PandaLabs blog, some of the more prominent awards include:

  1. Juan Santana, Panda Security CEO, among the 25 Most Innovative Executives of 2010. CRN, USA
  2. Panda Cloud Antivirus: Editor’s Choice. PC Magazine, USA
  3. Panda Security for Business: 5 Stars, SC Magazine, USA, UK

  8. Panda Internet Security 2011: First Place in Comparative Test, PC Security Labs, China

“We’re looking forward to an even more successful year ahead as the market has proven that it is ready for a cloud-based approach to antivirus security,” says Santana. “Based on the traction we are seeing in the channel, we expect revenues from Panda’s cloud security business solutions to surpass 20% of the company’s total income in 2011”, he concludes.

Panda Security Opens New Cloud Business Unit in Silicon Valley

New division led by security software industry veterans from Panda and Symantec to focus on aggressive market development and expansion of company’s cloud-based solutions

Panda Security has announced the formation of a new Cloud Business Unit that will focus on further accelerating worldwide growth around its cloud-based security services for consumers, small and medium sized businesses (SMBs) and resellers. The new unit will build on a strong momentum with Panda Cloud Antivirus, the world’s fastest growing consumer cloud security service. The group will also focus on market development and expansion for Panda Cloud Protection, featuring Panda Cloud Office Protection, Panda Cloud Email Protection and Panda Cloud Internet Protection for SMBs.

Headquartered in California the Cloud Business Unit will focus initially on the US market, and will collaborate closely with Panda Security USA, based in Orlando, Fl., to support the company’s continued expansion within the United States.

The Panda Cloud Protection product line has also grown well above the industry average growth rate for cloud-based security services. Income from these products grew 65% over the previous year and now represents 15% of the company’s total worldwide revenues. Panda expects this number to exceed 20% by the end of 2011. This compares to industry-wide revenue growth for SaaS, which made up only 10% of total security services revenue in 2009.

“Small and medium businesses are looking for security solutions that will protect them from the more than 55,000 new threats created daily, without slowing down their systems or requiring much maintenance,” says Juan Santana, CEO, Panda Security.  “Panda Security’s cloud solutions were designed to address both the needs of SMBs as well as our channel partners who serve them. The world class team we’ve built in Silicon Valley combined with our aggressive go-to-market, positions Panda very well to capitalize on the growth opportunity within the cloud”, he concludes.

Rick Carlson, president of Panda Security USA is confident of Panda’s success. “Panda Security is well positioned in the United States to take a big piece of the SaaS market with its best-in-class cloud products, support, and channel partner program”, he states. “The Orlando headquarters will benefit greatly by having a team on the ground in Silicon Valley to elevate the Panda brand even further and build on the strong foundation we already have established with SMBs and their managed service providers.”

Panda Security launches new version of Panda Cloud Office Protection

Global IT Vendor Panda Security has launched version 5.04.50 of Panda Cloud Office Protection (PCOP), its cloud-based security solution for corporate endpoints.

“The new version includes a host of new features and improvements which provides companies with an even more effective solution for malware detection and prevention”, says Jeremy Matthews, head of Panda’s sub-Saharan operations.

One of the version’s top new features is its compatibility with Office 2010, as well as its ability to scan the email messages stored in Windows Live Mail. It also incorporates new technologies to prevent infections from unknown malware. These technologies are capable of blocking threats even if the user is offline at the time of detection (identification processes take place in the cloud), or if the malware strain is new. Automatic verdicts are also returned directly, indicating whether the file is malware or goodware.

The new PCOP also contains a small signature file that only includes data about the most active malware every day. These file updates are truly automatic and do not require administrator intervention to deploy and implement them on every workstation on the network.

Since Panda Security started selling its cloud-based security suites last year, the company has achieved growth ratios well above the market average. In 2009, the company’s worldwide growth in this market segment reached 122% (compared to 2008), accounting for 20% of the company’s corporate revenue. This outstanding growth reflects the many benefits that a cloud-based security solution provides to clients.

Panda Cloud Office Protection can be sold separately or as part of the Panda Cloud Protection suite. This new solution complements Panda Security’s cloud-based, SaaS security products covering the main infection vectors: endpoints and servers (Panda Cloud Office Protection); corporate email (Panda Cloud Email Protection) and Internet traffic (Panda Cloud Internet Protection).

Panda SaaS solution saves 50% of security costs

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 licenses 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.
