As agents and brokers struggle to keep up with the latest in technology, a wide range of vendors gathered here to offer security solutions aimed at protecting technology investments.
Security technology products ranging from protective software to a password-driven hard drive were on display at the InfoSecurity conference held here last month.
Several of those products are highlighted below:
Panda Software rolled out its new Panda Antivirus Platinum 7.0 software, claiming it includes “the very latest in antivirus and firewall technologies.”
In addition to eliminating all types of viruses and malicious code, Platinum 7.0 performs daily automatic updates when the user is connected to the Internet, said Glendale, Calif.-based Panda.
The software includes firewall technology that provides “complete security against one of the biggest threats on the Internet: hackers,” the company stated.
Other features of the new software include: the ability to scan and disinfect all incoming and outgoing e-mail; wizards to aid in antivirus and firewall configuration; integration with Microsoft Windows Explorer, Microsoft Outlook and Lotus Notes; and scanning of network files and data transferred from computers to personal digital assistants, said Panda.
The new software also features The Virus Hospital, “a secure area where suspicious files containing viruses are held before being scanned in the next update,” the company explained.
“You dont have to be an expert to use this product,” said a Panda spokesman during the conference. He added that the product is priced at $69.95 for a single-user license.
Platinum 7.0 is backed by e-mail technical support, and users benefit from Pandas international virus warnings network, the company added.
