Entensys Corporation has announced a technology partnership with Panda Security to provide antivirus scanning functionality for UserGate and future products.
UserGate provides complete gateway traffic control that now includes Panda Antivirus protection.
The Panda antivirus engine is integrated into UserGate Proxy so that Panda Security works as a filter intercepting all data transferred through various Internet protocols. From all traffic it selects only those objects which are subject to control and analyzes them for viruses and spyware.
“The combination of Panda Antivirus engine with UserGate Internet Security server provides users with an extremely high-performance software solution for protecting and managing their Internet access," says Alexander Levchenko, president of Entensys Corporation. “Entensys offers customers a comprehensive, high-performance all-in-one solution to secure small and medium-size networks, including a built-in firewall, web filtering, user access control, antivirus and antispyware functionality."
“This agreement allows Panda Security to approach its technology a greater number of costumers, offering them the best protection in collaboration with Entensys, a specialised brand” says Jeremy Matthews, CE of Panda Security (South Africa).
Meanwhile, Panda Security and Commtouch® announced today that they have signed a licensing agreement to add Commtouch’s Anti-Spam technology to Panda’s TrustLayer Mail.
“We chose Commtouch’s Anti-Spam solution because our TrustLayer Mail service guarantees spam detection ratios of more than 98%, and Commtouch can help us achieve this,” says Matthews.
Panda ranks fourth in global market share, according to a 2006 Gartner report on anti-virus software.
Commtouch’s Anti-Spam engine is based on Recurrent Pattern Detection (RPD), a content-agnostic technology that detects and blocks spam in any language. RPD analyzes large volumes of Internet traffic in real-time, recognising and protecting against new spam outbreaks the moment they emerge.
TrustLayer Mail customers include Internet service providers, application service providers and telecommunications operators. TrustLayer provides 24×7 managed services, guaranteeing clean mail with antivirus, anti-spam, mail continuity and content filtering. TrustLayer Mail service quality is backed by an SLA (Service Level Agreement) to guarantee clients’ email is 100% virus-free.
“Panda Security’s customers require consistent, high-level performance from their TrustLayer Mail services, and we’re pleased that Commtouch’s Anti-Spam solution is being used to exceed their expectations,” says Ronni Zehavi, Commtouch Vice President of International Business Development. “We see this agreement as the first step of a long-term cooperative relationship between Panda and Commtouch.”
