Latest release of fastest growing cloud antivirus service takes major step forward in consumer PC protection and convenience
Panda Security has announced the launch of Panda Cloud Antivirus version 1.3. The release features a new security safeguard against malicious websites, as well as improvements to the user experience, in both the Free and Pro Editions. Users of both Cloud Antivirus products will continue to benefit from the real-time protection with the minimal computer resource consumption that they have come to expect from Panda.
Adding another layer of cloud-based protection to both the Free and Pro editions, Panda Cloud Antivirus 1.3 has incorporated a URL and web filtering feature which blocks suspicious and malicious websites before they can exploit vulnerabilities and inflict damage upon the user. In addition, those using the Free Edition will now benefit from automatic and transparent upgrades to the latest program releases: a feature previously reserved for Panda Cloud Antivirus Pro. Panda Cloud Antivirus 1.3 has also removed all pop-up advertisements from the Free Edition: a usability benefit that has always been included in the Pro Edition.
“Panda Cloud Antivirus 1.3 Free Edition continues to provide the best no-cost protection, while the Pro Edition remains an excellent investment in home security at an affordable price point” , says Jeremy Matthews, head of Panda’s sub-Saharan operations.
In a recent comparative test of leading free antivirus programs conducted by AV-Test.org for its Q2 Product Review and Certification Report, Panda Security’s antivirus detection software earned the top spot, detecting 99.87 percent of the zoo malware collection, the highest from all products tested.
Panda Antivirus also continues to win prestigious industry awards and accolades for its ability to deliver real-time protection with minimal impact on PC performance. The product was most recently honored as a Runner-Up in the Wall Street Journal Technology Innovation Awards and is the reigning Editor’s Choice in PCMag.com’s free antivirus software category.
Both products are available now and can be downloaded at http://www.cloudantivirus.com.
