World-renowned ICSA Labs, an independent division of Cybertrust, has certified Panda ExchangeSecure Antivirus for its effective detection and prevention of cybercrime and security threats on the Microsoft Exchange mail server platform, without returning false positives. Certification achieved by Panda ExchangeSecure Antivirus comes in addition to those obtained by other Panda products, both consumer and corporate.

Before receiving certification, products undergo a series of ICSA Labs tests, including detecting malware in inbound and outbound mail through the server and its ability to neutralize replication and elimination of malware. All of these functions must be performed without returning any false positives.

The test also includes the capability of the solution’s administrative functions, which should allow virus detection to be enabled and disabled, the signature file to be updated or installed and the log files to be viewed. All of these functions should be accessible from the same interface, facilitating product administration.

Finally, the tests study the generation of log files, which are essential for effective management. Products must be able to clearly log all viruses detected and the action taken to be studied.

ExchangeSecure provides protection against all types of malware, such as cybercrime, spyware and phishing. Straightforward management via the AdminSecure console also provides access to the log files. These files are also directly accessible by consulting the Event Storage Database, as long as the information is stored in open format to allow the data to be processed and consolidated.

“The ICSA Labs certification obtained by our solution for Exchange mail servers is a clear indication of the level of virus protection we provide our clients,” says Paula Quiros, director of corporate business units at Panda Software. “These types of solutions are essential in companies in which a huge amount of information is transferred via email. The installation of protection at this point is essential in achieving a high level of security on all levels.”

Panda ExchangeSecure Antivirus protects Microsoft Exchange Server mail servers with maximum performance in both independent and cluster installations. ExchangeSecure checks all company email, scans attachments in memory, guarantees compliance with corporate policies by filtering of inappropriate content, detects suspicious files through heuristic scanning and blocks spam before it reaches recipients.
