New features in Panda Security Managed service include a malware disinfection service
Panda Security announces Adaptive Defense 1.5, the latest version of the managed service that ensures security against Advanced Persistent Threats (APTs) and targeted attacks in enterprise environments. Adaptive Defense operates a disruptive approach compared to traditional blacklist-based malware detection systems, by monitoring every action that occurs as a consequence of the running of any application on your company’s endpoints or servers.
Protection against targeted and zero-day attacks
An APT makes use of multiple infection vectors including malware, phishing and other advanced techniques over an extended period of time, whose main objectives are industrial espionage and data theft.
Traditional antivirus solutions are not capable of detecting these types of attacks, nor of disinfecting the computers infected by them. Adaptive Defense, however, proposes a new security model based on supervision, control and classification of the behavior and nature of every application run in order to provide robust and complete protection, only allowing legitimate applications (goodware) to run.
In addition, the ability to incorporate Adaptive Defense into the customer's existing infrastructure, coexisting with existing antivirus or SIEM solutions used by the company, coupled with its disinfection capabilities, make Adaptive Defense the complete and definitive enterprise tool against all types of malware, including targeted and zero-day attacks.
“With the blocking modes of Adaptive Defense 1.5, we can ensure complete and robust protection for all companies. These modes only allow applications classified as goodware to run, making it the ideal solution for companies that require a ‘Zero Risk’ security policy”, explains Josu Franco, VP Corporate Development at Panda Security.
Real-time audit service
Adaptive Defense 1.5 constantly scans the applications that try to run, and automatically classifies all applications using Machine Learning techniques in Big Data environments under the supervision of specialized PandaLabs technicians. If malware is identified, the user receives instant warnings with a comprehensive report detailing the locations, infected machines and the actions performed by the malware. The execution graphs allow the administrator to view the events triggered by the malware, providing clear and thorough information about the actions performed by malware, the recipients of the messages and the files created.
Furthermore, the new version of Adaptive Defense identifies software with known vulnerabilities installed on the network.
