Panda Security launches its 2009 antivirus products

Panda Security has launched its 2009 range of antivirus solutions for the consumer sector. The product line-up comprises Panda Antivirus Pro 2009, Panda Internet Security 2009 and Panda Global Protection 2009.

The new range is based on Collective Intelligence, an innovative web 2.0 security model that generates protection from the “cloud”. The system utilises real time malware information acquired via user community and generates vaccines to neutralise malicious threats. The approach significantly reduces resource consumption and speeds up effective detection and disinfection rates.
 
The products have been designed to make the most of web 2.0 technologies and pragmatically safeguard against unknown threats that infect users via typical day-to-day gateways such as emails or instant messaging applications. This incorporates proactive solutions to carry out on-demand scans from the cloud and protects users while surfing the Web.
 
Panda Security’s Collective Intelligence works as an online, real-time database that stores the majority of signature files, keeping them at a minimum on the users’ PCs. Every Panda user is a sensor for new malware, sending statistical data about malware prevalence back to the cloud. This new approach reduces bandwidth consumption on customers’ PCs and provides faster and more comprehensive up-to-date protection.

Panda Antivirus Pro 2009: Offers fast, easy-to-use protection. This new solution provides higher protection against viruses, spyware and hackers, and includes a new engine against identity theft. Similarly, it prevents hackers from getting into the computer, thanks to its built-in Panda firewall. It is mainly aimed at people who need an easy-to-install, simple protection.

Panda Internet Security 2009: Panda Security’s integrated suite against all types of threats. It protects you from viruses, spyware, hackers, identity theft and all other Internet-borne threats. It includes a new antispam filter and parental control so children can surf the Internet safely. It is aimed at families and users who require maximum protection to use the Internet with complete peace of mind.

Panda Global Protection 2009: As well as the features included in the other two solutions, Panda Security’s new consumer solution includes a 2 GB premium online backup system and system restoring tools. These features help protect the most important files against accidental loss or damage. It is aimed at advanced Internet users who need to carry out online activities (purchases, bank transactions, tax return payments, etc.).
