Bracknell, 17th August 2011:

Panda Security (, has announced today that its new perimeter protection solution Panda Virtual GateDefender Performa ( has achieved the VMware Ready™ ( certification. The VMware Ready™ Virtual Appliance Program is a validation program designed to ensure the best possible user experience by promoting virtual appliances that are VMware verified and ready to run on virtual environments.
The VMware Ready™ status enables Panda Security to guarantee that Panda Virtual GateDefender Performa is optimized to run on VMware infrastructures. This certification clearly communicates that Panda’s virtual security appliance is safe, rigorously tested and ready to run on production environments.
Panda Virtual GateDefender Performa (VMware Ready™) is an easy-to-use, consolidated solution that improves the inherent benefits of virtualization, harnessing the power of cloud detection while maintaining all the control of an on-premise solution.

The hybrid cloud used by the new virtual appliance combines a private cloud, hosted on a private network which provides service to Panda Virtual GateDefender Performa; and a public cloud, which provides service to a global network and the private cloud (Collective Intelligence - as well.
Leveraging of a hybrid cloud also represents a significant step forward in perimeter security, as it gives companies total control over their data, including log files and registries, without this feature affecting the detection capacity. This means that no data is sent to the cloud for analysis, except for certain traces with a high level of encryption.
Panda Virtual GateDefender Performa is the only Secure Content Management (SCM) solution that achieves the operational objectives of virtualized environments -cost efficiency, application consolidation and simplicity-, leveraging the full detection potential of the cloud in a single solution.
