Konica Minolta Relies on Panda Security to Secure Its Highly Distributed Workforce
ORLANDO, Fla., March 28, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — Panda Security, The Cloud Security Company, today announced its ongoing partnership with Konica Minolta, a leading provider of IT and office equipment. Konica Minolta has been working with Panda Security to help protect its highly distributed workforce in Portugal for more than eight years.
For Konica Minolta, the benefits of being able to manage the protection of the entire network remotely are of special relevance because of its dispersed IT infrastructure. By eliminating the need for local teams to dedicate their time to security or constantly traveling between the branches to provide internal IT support, Konica Minolta is able to focus on its core business. Konica Minolta’s IT infrastructure is made up of approximately 200 computers mainly concentrated at its headquarters in Prior Velho, Lisbon, with offices in three other strategic cities (Porto, Coimbra and Faro).
“The antivirus solution Panda Security for Enterprise guarantees the protection of all workstations and servers, which are easily managed from a single location through the Panda AdminSecure tool,” said Delfim Oliveira, IT Manager of Konica Minolta Portugal. “Our security decision was strongly motivated by Panda being the most innovative company on the security solutions market.”
Panda Security’s ability to secure Konica Minolta’s widely distributed workforce gave Panda an advantage over its competitors and throughout the past eight years, has met all of Konica Minolta’s needs. “Since installing Panda’s products we haven’t had any infection issues, which provides us with significant peace of mind,” added Oliveira.
One of the most outstanding features of Panda Security for Enterprise is “the ease of management provided by the AdminSecure centralized console,” which sets it apart from its competitors.
Konica Minolta’s relationship with Panda Security exemplifies Panda’s mission of providing the highest quality service to its customers. “Whenever it was requested, Panda Security support displayed technical competence and professionalism, solving incidents with either a remote fix or in some cases an onsite visit,” explained Oliveira. However, he clarified that “The stability of the Panda solution installed on our systems ensures no current incidents, and the experience we have gathered during our years of partnership allows proactive protection against new threats.”
Panda Security for Enterprise provides the most advanced proactive protection in a multi-tier flexible architecture covering all network layers. Its functionalities include network access and application control. Panda Security for Enterprise provides complete protection against known and unknown threats, based on a combination of the most advanced proactive technologies and comprehensive, periodic audits.
