Panda Platinum Internet Security 2005 receives the Trojan Checkmark certification for protection against Trojans

Panda Software’s consumer product Platinum Internet Security 2005 has recently obtained the Trojan Checkmark certificate from West Coast Labs for protection against Trojans. This certificate for Panda Platinum Internet Security covers the prevention, detection and elimination of these types of threats and comes in addition to those previously received for both detection and disinfection of viruses.

West Coast Labs, a highly-regarded, independent IT security research center, and the organization responsible for the tests that lead to certification, periodically analyses IT security products, regularly updating its Trojan tests database. To obtain the certification, the product analyzed must be capable of recognizing all the threats in the test database. Moreover, it must be able to get through tests specifically designed to ensure it can detect threats without causing false positives.

“The Trojan Checkmark certification is a good indicator of the quality level of our anti-malware solution against the threat of Trojans”, states Ignacio Ayerbe, Director of Panda Software’s Consumer Market Business Unit. “This takes on even greater importance if we bear in mind the high level of activity of this type of malware in recent months. Success in the tests is mainly dependent on the combination of two types of technologies when analyzing the system: traditional reactive technologies, and our TruPreventTM proactive technology, capable of detecting previously unknown threats”.

This certification given to Panda Platinum Internet Security 2005 is just one of several Panda has received for its products, both corporate and consumer, as well as its online tools for detecting both Trojans and detecting and disinfecting viruses.
