This version is focused on our Community, more than any other version before it. Thanks to their collective input, we have been able to include these continuous innovations in Panda Cloud Antivirus.

Panda Security, The Cloud Security Company, has announced the release of version 2.2 of Panda Cloud Antivirus, the first cloud-based antivirus, which now offers new features to deliver the most advanced data protection. Existing users of Panda Cloud Antivirus will enjoy all the new functions of the software through automatic updates for those with version 2.1.1 and earlier editions.

Version 2.2 draws on the experience of the community of Internet users from previous versions of the solution, and includes new features designed to protect personal data. Similarly, Panda Cloud Antivirus 2.2 includes "Community Labs," a new area specifically established for more advanced users to access new features of the program for free during the pilot phase.

New Features in Panda Cloud Antivirus 2.2
New features included in the Community Labs area are strongly-focused on the security of users' personal data, as well as safer browsing for children and disinfection capabilities of computers with Panda Cloud Cleaner technology.

  •     Data Shield: Enables Panda Cloud Antivirus to prevent malware from accessing users’ personal data. Should any new malware overcome all layers of protection and infiltrate a user’s computer, this new version will prevent the theft or encryption of personal data.
  •     Parental Control: Keeps kids safe from inappropriate Web content. This feature lets users block access to a range of Web content, classified into 59 different categories. Parents can also get a quick view of children’s activity through a dashboard with filters by date, website or category.
  •     Rescue Boot: A highly useful tool in the event of emergencies caused by malware infections that block computers. This boots the system from a USB or rescue option on the computer and removes any virus that blocks it using Panda Cloud Cleaner technology.

Optimized Protection
Panda Cloud Antivirus 2.2 also includes a series of improvements that will increase its detection capabilities, while meeting the needs of Internet users. This version includes two features widely requested by the community of users: Access control and safe mode scanning and installation. Access Control means that Panda Cloud Antivirus can be password-protected against unauthorized access. And Panda Cloud Antivirus 2.2 can now be installed in Safe Mode, scanning the computer for all types of malware.

Alberto Añón, Product Manager for Panda Cloud Antivirus at Panda Security, explains: “This version is focused on our Community, more than any other version before it. Thanks to their collective input, we have been able to include these continuous innovations in Panda Cloud Antivirus, and have launched a new area integrated in the product designed especially for this user community. We have also improved our behavioral and anti-exploit technologies and expanded our capabilities to detect potentially unwanted programs.”

”We will continue to listen to our user community to ensure we improve Panda Cloud Antivirus. This continuous feedback helps guarantee maximum security with a minimal impact on performance. Panda Cloud Antivirus still stands out as being one of the lightest solutions on the market, and we will strive to ensure that remains the case,” concludes Añón.
