Cloud Computing

Thanks to Collective Intelligence, based on Cloud Technology, the Panda Security products proactively protect from the onset without having to wait for updates of the malware signature file as traditional antivirus software does. Additionally, Panda’s products leverage the Cloud’s ‘unlimited’ capacity to store knowledge.

Every day, Panda Security receives and analyzes some 73,000 malware samples which are automatically classified by Panda’s Collective Intelligence. Collective Intelligence prevents excessive consumption of PC memory/resources as most technologies are hosted in the Cloud (Internet). All processes take place online and automatically on Panda’s servers! Therefore, there is no impact on computer resources.

Cloud Computing is different

Always updated, always protected!
Panda Cloud technology is a set of technologies (Collective intelligence) capable of automatically analyzing, classifying and disinfecting new malware strains automatically without human intervention. We protect users in real time.

Light protection with minimum impact in your PC
Panda Cloud technology is a major technological advance for combating all types of threats. Previously, antivirus products relied on periodic updates to protect against new threats which were effective when there were a small number of threats in circulation that could be processed manually by laboratory technicians. However, today, the amount of malware is growing exponentially so this approach is no longer possible.

The Detection capacity is not limited by your PC
In this context, Panda Cloud technology complements the traditional technologies of antivirus products in order to effectively deal with the enormous amount of threats in circulation.

This is why Panda customers keep their PCs protected from all threats.

3.0 out of 5 stars Slow but steady... 16 Jan 2013
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
This software was installed on a Vista 32-bit with latest updates. Kaspersky had been previously on the machine, and was successfully remove before the install.

Panda installed fine, as least I think it did. It hung at one point for several minutes with no HDD accessing. Eventually it completed and everything seems okay.

As for the program itself, it does almost everything you could want, and seems very equal to the other software at this pricepoint. However, it has certainly slowed down my PC, particularly when having everything active and scanning. For this reason alone I would not buy it.

1.0 out of 5 stars Hopeless install 5 Feb 2012
By Crusty
Verified Purchase
Will not install properly. Downloaded supposed 'fix' from their website and this also does not run. To top it all the Uninstall programme will also not run, leaving my hard drive clogged with their files. All this time my computer is exposed to attack. Hope others have better luck but what faith can you have in a so-called security product that doesn't work first time.

3.0 out of 5 stars Simple but slow 23 April 2012
By marcoscu TOP 500 REVIEWER
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Internet security software can often be problematic and I would advise any potential purchaser to first visit the website of the company concerned and download a demo version of the product first. They almost all offer trial versions and they can be used to fully test the software for several weeks prior to purchase. A program that works well for one user may cause endless problems for another and so it is always best to check first.

I would certainly advise doing so with this new offering from Panda.

Firstly I was pleased to find that the software was quick and easy to install and when after a few days I came to remove it I found it equally easy to uninstall.

The interface is simple and uncluttered and with none of the secondary screens that rival products appear so keen on. There seem to be fewer options offered than with some other products but that is by no means a bad thing as too many security suites are massively over engineered and pointless complicated . However, the power user may prefer a more detailed and advanced set of options.

This suite offers nothing that I have not seen in its rivals: anti virus, firewall, Gaming mode, Email monitoring, identity protection, web censorship, local and remote backup. It also offers features that many people will not want or that can be found better implemented or for free elsewhere: such as file encryption and system tweaking. The main claim to fame of Panda is that it offers a cloud based and non invasive file scanning that claims to reduce system slowdown. This was not my experience. Of course, this all hinges on your Panda protected PC's being online when scanning suspect files.

3.0 out of 5 stars Allegedly cracked by "Anonymous" 7 Mar 2012
By petea
A statement by Anonymous, who hacked Panda on 7 March 2012, alleged that there was a "backdoor" in this product. I don't know whether that is true, but you might want to do a quick Google search to check it out, before buying.

4.0 out of 5 stars like internet security but not internet security 6 April 2013
By Mad Saint Uden VINE VOICE
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
This was easy enough to navigate if you know the 'language' to use & if not it takes a little time personalise everything the way that works best for you.

It wasn't too bad on using the resources of my laptop and installed ok. It just is not very exciting. It also didn't make anything crash or fall over which is better than some but it wasn't as intuitive or as quick as it could be.

So this is very handy for the home network that has NAS drives, a SMART TV, web connected console(s) as it covers a range conected devices.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
So the first thing I noticed when I began installing this product is that it has a nice icon of a panda at the top of the window. The next thing I noticed is that it didn't automatically uninstall my previous security software like G-data had done before (my previous protection software) so I had to do that manually.

Once I'd done that leaving my computer unprotected I installed Panda. It prompted me to save the latest version direct from the web rather than the CD but my activation key meant that I didn't have to pay extra to do that.

The other thing I noticed when reading through all the material is that Panda is always up to date because it constantly updates the software if any new viruses infiltrate somewhere across the world. I don't know if that is standard practice across all protection softwares but it seemed pretty neat to me.

However now having had Panda for a few months I can see that it causes my computer to be slower than my previous protection software, like when watching online videos for example. It isn't massively slow by all means, just slower.

But I haven't been attacked by any computer viruses yet so I guess it is ok.

3.0 out of 5 stars Does the job... or most of it 27 Sep 2012
By Barto
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
I must admit I'm a problematic reviewer for this Panda package - being a long-time Kaspersky/Norton fan and all... But I did give it a chance and was satisfied with most of its features. It installs very smoothly, the updates are no fuss at all and the response to the few minor attacks I had in the trial period was satisfactory. Having said that, I still feel that the interfaces of Kaspersky and Norton are a bit more intuitive and I had some problems with the "Defragment" option here. Not a big deal, really - but I've returned to Kaspersky soon as I could, anyway.
