Over the past five years, the anti-virus market has experienced tremendous growth as many new technologies have emerged in response to current conditions. What was once a market consisting of very few players has evolved into a multi-billion dollar enterprise consisting of dozens of companies with huge assortment of anti-virus products varying in focus and quality.

Despite this growth, the technology behind anti-virus today is highly inefficient when it comes to protecting against modernized threats. This is fueled by the fact that vendors simply can't keep up with all of the new malware surfacing each and every day. The situation has created a breakdown in the quality and effectiveness of their underlying core technology.

When we examine this security model further, the small and medium size business (SMB) market will be affected the most. The traditional anti-virus model introduces significant challenges for SMBs who have tight budgets for security. This is especially true as they often do not have the expertise or resources in-house to manage and administer complex anti-malware solutions.

The best alternative that an SMB can take when it comes to security is outsourcing their services to a hosted infrastructure and/or adopting a Security-as-a-Service model. This helps reduce complexity and time to market when implementing new security technologies and will not require a high degree of skill to maintain the solution.

Attendees will learn:

  •      How existing traditional AV solutions are no longer effective against today's threats
  •      How Security-as-a-Service will save you money in terms of overall Total Cost of Ownership (TCO)
  •      How the adoption of "in the cloud" services will affect the SMB market
  •      Introduction to Panda Security for Managed Office Protection
