Barracuda Pub Group Uses Panda Cloud Office Protection to Easily Manage Security for its Highly Distributed and Mobile Workforce
ORLANDO, Fla., Nov. 28, 2011 /PRNewswire/ — Panda Security, The Cloud Security Company, today announced that Barracuda Pub Group, a leading UK pub company, has chosen its cloud-based managed security service, Panda Cloud Office Protection, to instantaneously and efficiently protect the company’s highly distributed network, comprising 200 locations across the UK, including 80 remote users as well as employees at corporate offices on traditional networks.
“In the past, we had to allocate a large amount of time and resources just to keep our users protected with high-maintenance client-server security products,” said Mark Gurney, IT manager of the Barracuda Pub Group. “Now with Panda Cloud Office Protection, on-going maintenance is almost non-existent, and the solution is so light and unobtrusive it is invisible to the users.”
An important determinant in Barracuda’s choice, Panda Cloud Office Protection’s infrastructure and management console are fully hosted in the cloud, eliminating the difficulties of managing remote users and additional hardware costs associated with a client-server security model. Panda’s endpoint security service can be installed remotely, either through a distribution tool or email, and managed from anywhere, anytime through its Web console. The solution also offers group policies for advanced configuration of protection levels.
Panda Security’s Collective Intelligence, its proprietary detection technology hosted in the cloud, ensures accurate and powerful threat detection capabilities. Collective Intelligence is regularly placed at the top of comparative tests by leading independent testing labs that closely simulate real-life conditions and most recently reached an impressive milestone, processing 200 million files since its launch in 2007.
