Panda Software is launching the new Panda Antivirus 2007, the lightest antivirus in the Panda Software consumer solutions range. This new, easy-to-use, antivirus solution offers complete protection against known and unknown Internet threats with a minimal use of system resources. The new Panda Antivirus 2007 is aimed at home users whose Internet use does not require all the features offered by a complete security suite. For this reason it has been designed to “install and forget’, protecting the system automatically from the moment it is installed.
This ultralight product has a minimal impact on system resources and is ideal for any computer, even those that wouldn’t be able to support many other security products available on the market. System requirements for installing Panda Antivirus 2007 are 64MB RAM and a 150MHz Pentium processor.
International surveys show that many users have two or more computers at home. With this in mind, Panda Software has launched a solution which can be installed on 2 PCs at no extra cost.
The product, available from August 3, includes complete protection and associated services (updates, 24h/365d tech support) for one year, at a price of just Ã¢â€šÂ¬29.95 for two licenses. This makes it the best quality/price solution on the market at Ã¢â€šÂ¬14.97 per license.
Traditional antivirus products, designed to combat classic threats such as viruses, worms, Trojans, etc. offer no defense against today’s silent epidemics fuelled by dangerous new threats including rootkits, banker Trojans, identity theft and online fraud. To counter the risks presented by this new panorama, proactive technologies are needed. Panda Antivirus 2007 is specifically designed to deal with the new Internet threat scenario.
This new solution combines a range of proactive and reactive threat detection technologies to provide the most complete protection for home users against viruses, worms, Trojans, spyware, etc, as well as against new threats oriented towards theft and online fraud. Panda Antivirus 2007 combines antivirus anti-spyware and anti-phishing technologies with the Genetic Heuristic Engine, a new generation heuristic scanner that detects and blocks unknown threats more effectively than traditional heuristics and with an extremely low rate of false positives. Panda Software’s heuristic technology has been highly acclaimed by leading IT experts such as Andreas Marx of AV-Test.org and specialist magazines including PC World.
This combination of technologies offers the average Internet user the best protection against identity theft and online fraud, blocking the tools frequently used by cyber-crooks (keyloggers, spyware, backdoors, etc) to steal confidential data.
Panda Antivirus 2007 includes the services that accompany all Panda Software solutions: automatic updates several times a day, Tech Support 24h-365d via Internet or email and 24h-SOS Virus service to analyze suspicious programs.
