PANDA LAUNCHES FREE ANTI-MALWARE SUITE FOR LINUX WORKSTATIONS.Panda Software has launched Panda DesktopSecure for Linux, a complete security suite for protecting Linux workstations. This solution is available completely free to Linux users at: http://www.pandasoftware.com/products/DesktopSecure.
The new Panda Software solution includes signature-based detection of malicious code, the Genetic Heuristic A method of problem solving using exploration and trial and error methods. Heuristic program design provides a framework for solving the problem in contrast with a fixed set of rules (algorithmic) that cannot vary.

It also has the advantage that all these features can be controlled simply and intuitively through a single graphic interface.
Panda DesktopSecure for Linux is designed specifically to meet the security demands of this operating system operating system (OS)
Software that controls the operation of a computer, directs the input and output of data, keeps track of files, and controls the processing of computer programs. . It is aimed at both home users and companies with workstations running Linux. The case of companies with heterogeneous Windows/Linux environments is of particular concern, as Linux computers are not just exposed to specific threats but can also act as a launch pad for the propagation The transmission (spreading) of signals from one place to another. of infection to Windows systems within the local network.
The Panda Software solution not only protects transparently against known Internet threats -- thanks to its daily updates against the most recent malware -- but also protects against those threats that have not previously been detected, thanks to the Genetic Heuristic Engine, a new technology which analyzes the "genetic profile" of each file. This makes it extremely accurate in determining whether or not a file contains malware, and reduces false positives to a minimum. Panda DesktopSecure for Linux offers real-time protection Real-time protection, on-access scanning, background guard, resident shield, autoprotect, and other synonyms refer to the automatic protection provided by most antivirus, antispyware, and other antimalware programs, which is arguably their most important for email in the most widely used clients, including Ximiam Evolution and Mozilla.
The X-Window interface gives users full control over the firewall incorporated in the Panda Software solution, allowing them to configure See configuration.

Cygnus configure was a similar system developed by K. communications, detect intrusions and assign application access permissions.
Many people wrongly believe that the Linux operating system is completely safe, and therefore many users run these systems with no protection whatsoever. Linux computers are indeed vulnerable to Internet threats. It is not just a problem of the specific malicious code created for this platform, but also of users with limited knowledge of Linux whose poor configuration of the system can lead to IT attacks.
With this launch, Panda Software aims to contribute to the Linux community with a security tool that offers both businesses and home users a wide range of benefits:
- Prevention of data loss through attacks. - Protects your external communication, whether by email, Internet or other applications. - Improves productivity, thanks to its ease-of-use and automatic updates.
