Panda Security launches Adaptive Defense

0 comments

With more than 230 000 new malware samples created daily, businesses are facing increased threats that put their confidential information at risk and leave them in compromising situations. Introducing Adaptive Defense 360, Panda’s latest solution that covers all that a traditional anti-virus can’t.
Adaptive Defense 360 combines two of Panda’s star solutions in one console. Endpoint Protection Plus is the company’s Endpoint Protection Platform (EPP) solution and comes with all of the features of a traditional protection: antivirus, antimalware, personal firewall, web and mail filtering and device management. Adaptive Defense, the company’s endpoint protection and response (EDR) solution, adds detection and automated response, continuous monitoring and real-time forensic analysis – which results in the complete strengthening and securing of the endpoint.
“Adaptive Defense 360 is in a league of its own compared to other solutions on the market. The key is continuously analysing all computer activity to classify each process as ‘goodware’ and malware,” says country manager Jeremy Matthews.
The new solution combines all the advantages of a traditional antivirus – prevention and blocking of attacks and remediation of infections – with advanced protection and full traceability. This means that companies are able to analyse all running applications.
Adaptive Defense provides an endpoint detection service that is able to accurately classify each of the organisation’s applications so that it only runs legal actions. This is precisely what differentiates Adaptive Defense 360 from conventional antiviruses.
This security service detects threats in a real environment regardless of source, including USB. This is different in comparison to most other ATD (Advanced Threat Detection) solutions, as these solutions only locate threats that enter the network and virtualised environments.
The lack of updates on systems is a common entry point for malware on company networks. Adaptive Defense 360 incorporates a solution against vulnerabilities, using contextual and behavioural rules, so that companies can work in a safe environment even when the networks and systems are not up to date.
This service allows visual monitoring of whatever is triggering malware within a company’s network. It not only locates where the malware is housed, but also reports the actions being carried out – such as the creation of files and the destination of communications. Using this technology, it provides continuous information of the network’s status – sending immediate alerts when malware enters the network and the actions being undertaken to address it.
With Adaptive Defense companies are able to avoid spending resources on technical staff to manage or quarantine suspicious files and reinstalling or disinfecting infected computers. Adaptive Defense automatically classifies all applications using Machine Learning techniques in big data environments, all under constant supervision of PandaLabs’ specialised technicians who manage the entire process.
Adaptive Defense 360 is based on three principles; continuous monitoring, automatic classification and manual classification and analysis. With this kind of protection and response securing the Endpoint, companies gain a complete solution to fight against malware as well as prevent it.
