Orlando, FL (PRWEB) May 13, 2014
Panda Security, The Cloud Security Company, today announced the launch of a new version of its popular cloud-based free antivirus scanner Panda Cloud Antivirus, v3.0. The launch follows the successful release last February of the product's 2.9 beta, which has already been downloaded more than 30,000 times by users in more than 130 countries.
Panda Cloud Antivirus 3.0 has, in both its free and Pro Edition versions, a completely new look and feel, much more modern and intuitive than ever before. Additionally, the solution provides significantly improved protection against new threats and exploits that take advantage of system vulnerabilities, as well as automatic USB vaccination, a feature which was previously restricted to Pro users only and is now available to all users.
Also, the solution includes a Rescue Kit extremely useful in emergency situations caused by malware infections, and a more powerful process monitor.
The new Panda Cloud Antivirus provides the ability to run scheduled scans, a feature strongly demanded by the Panda Security community; and a new Panda Account, a personal area where users can download products, manage their services, obtain documentation, access technical support through a new support forum, and manage their Android devices provided they are protected with Panda Mobile Security.
In addition, users of the Pro version will be able to enjoy VIP support via a Web form and the technical support forum. The Pro version comes with a new Wi-Fi monitor module which enables users to display a list of all devices that are currently connected to their network and find out if there is someone stealing their Wi-Fi.
All these improvements make the new Panda Cloud Antivirus 3.0 lighter and more complete than ever. “We are constantly evolving our detection technologies to protect our customers against new and emerging threats while minimizing false positives. And our efforts are paying off, as demonstrated by Panda Cloud Antivirus' ranking as the best free antivirus solution in the latest AV-Test evaluation,” said Alberto Añón, Panda Cloud Antivirus Product Manager at Panda Security.
