Gartner has positioned Panda Security as a visionary company in its "Magic Quadrant for Endpoint Protection Platforms".
Gartner's Magic Quadrant for EPP (endpoint protection platform) is based on an assessment of a company's completeness of vision and ability to execute.
According to Gartner to be positioned as visionary, as is the case with Panda, a company must understand the needs of clients to achieve proactive and integrated defence against all types of malware and have an innovative and appropriate roadmap to offer these functionalities with optimum results.
“Our position in the visionaries quadrant underlines, once again, the value of Panda Security technologies and confirms our undertaking to stay one step ahead of threats,” says Jeremy Matthews, Panda Security’s head of sub-Saharan operations. “It also encourages us to redouble our commitment to innovation and technological development as key mechanisms for achieving all our objectives”.
“Technological innovation is a characteristic that sets Panda Security apart from the rest. We have always reinvested a large part of our profits in the research and development of new products and technologies,” explains Matthews.
The result is a continuous process of innovation, reflected in the new security model called ‘Collective Intelligence’, developed by Panda Research and housed in a network of data centres.
This approach includes real-time communication with users’ computers and the automated processing of large quantities of information about programmes and files in a new infrastructure managed by PandaLabs. This way, the malware scanning and detection is performed on Panda Security’s servers, not on the endpoint itself.
Thanks to Collective Intelligence, Panda Security has developed a series of security solutions –both for consumer and corporate customers – which can detect malware that has evaded other solutions and is acting maliciously on computers.
