Panda Security, The Cloud Security Company, today announced the beta release of version 6.50 of Panda Cloud Office Protection Advanced, the first cloud-based endpoint security solution with protection for Exchange Server.
Main new features of Panda Cloud Office Protection Advanced 6.50 beta include:
- URL filtering: Improved proactive detection for even better protection. The solution's technology and reporting capabilities allow deeper visibility into end-user Internet activity and productivity. In addition, it enables administrators to create URL blacklists and whitelists, and blocks access to URLs belonging to prohibited categories, such as sex, gaming, etc.
- Anti-exploit technology: Detects and neutralizes malware that exploits 0-day vulnerabilities to infect the PC. This technology leverages Panda's Collective Technology to block Blackhole and Redkit exploit malware by analyzing its behavior. The solution is capable of detecting new malware variants even before they have been identified.
- Compatible with Exchange Server 2013: The beta release is compatible with the new messaging platform Exchange Server 2013, as well as with Microsoft's new operating system Windows 8 (32-bit and 64-bit) and Windows 2012 Server.
Panda Cloud Office Protection Advanced, which was launched last June, features Exchange Server protection that scans all inbound and outbound email regardless of the protocol used. Additionally, the software has an intelligent mailbox scanner that optimizes server resource usage, and incorporates anti-spam protection and Device Control technologies designed to prevent the spread of malware through the improper use of external devices.
