Panda Platinum 2006 Internet Security named “Best Buy” by De Digitale Consument magazine

The Panda consumer product Panda Platinum 2006 Internet Security has taken first place in a comparative review carried out by the Dutch national consumer organization magazine, De Digitale Consument, ahead of nine other solutions. The technical analysis in the survey focused on the antivirus and anti-spyware potential of the products, as well as the firewall performance. The test used samples of some 3500 threats, including viruses, the worms and Trojans and 27 examples of particularly persistent spyware on computers with Windows XP SP installed.

“This recognition is one of many from countries all around the world that demonstrates the quality of our products,” explains Virginia Romero, Director of the Consumer Business Unit. “One of the most significant aspects of this comparative is the proven protection level offered by Platinum 2006 against all types of threats, demonstrating our commitment to our clients’ security”.

The comparative highlights the performance of the antivirus engine of the Panda suite against the rest of the solutions, and that the same time underlines how it was able to eliminate all samples of spyware used in the test. The magazine also rated its ease-of-use, pointing out that Platinum offers advice on whether certain action should be allowed or not on the computer, particularly useful for non-expert users. Platinum 2006 achieved very good ratings in price, antivirus, anti-spyware, and documentation.
