It’s been a while since we posted news about reviews, awards and certifications that Panda Cloud Antivirus has obtained. Lately there have been various new reviews about it, so I wanted to point them out here:
As you may remember back when Panda Cloud Antivirus 1.0 was released it was awarded the Editor’s Choice for “Best Free Antivirus” from PCMag.com. Now with the release of version 1.1 a few months ago, PCMag.com reviewed it again, alongside Avast!, AVG and other free antivirus, and it again achieved the Editor’s Choice award for free antivirus. The full review can be seen over at http://www.pcmag.com/article2/0,2817,2364844,00.asp.
Raymond.cc, the well known security expert website, reviewed cloud-based offerings from different vendors trying to answer the question of whether cloud-based antivirus products can replace traditional signature-based products. In his own words, “Currently I would only dare to say Panda Cloud Antivirus Pro is good enough to be a possible replacement for traditional signature based antivirus. The detection rate is as good as the 3 big A’s (avira, avg, avast) and also quite light on system resources. Panda Cloud Antivirus is also very easy to configure with only a few easy to understand settings.” Please read the full review over at http://www.raymond.cc/blog/archives/2010/10/12/cloud-antivirus-review-possible-replacement-for-traditional-signature-based-antivirus/
