Panda Software and SOYO Sign an Agreement to Give Users The Best Protection Against Viruses

MADRID, October 13, 2003 – Panda Software and SOYO, one of the leading manufacturers of motherboards and related peripherals in Taiwan, have signed a commercial agreement. Through this agreement, 600,000 motherboards that will be distributed all over the world will include a completely functional version, with a month of services, of Panda Antivirus Titanium.

Thanks to this agreement, users buying these motherboards manufactured by SOYO, will benefit from the most efficient and cutting-edge protection against viruses offered by Panda Antivirus Titanium. The product will have daily updates, telephone and e-mail tech support for a month.

According to David Wu, Vice President at SOYO , ‘the inclusion of a totally functional version of Panda Antivirus Titanium in our products means a major advance in computer security. As our products are distributed all around the world, the fact that our users have a solution against known malicious code from the first day will make it extremely difficult for viruses to carry out their actions’.

Panda Antivirus Titanium success since it was first launched -more than two years ago- lies in the fact that it is a ‘ install and forget’ solution against malicious code, designed with simplicity and transparency in mind. A user with a basic knowledge of computers or that cannot dedicate time to the maintenance of systems, will find an essential ally in this solution. After Titanium is installed, the options needed to ensure complete security against viruses will be enabled by default. The user will not have to worry about the antivirus updates: these will be carried out automatically and in the background, when the user is connected to the Internet.

Panda Antivirus Titanium has earned wide recognition and awards from the specialized media. For more information, visit .
