The Free Edition of Panda Cloud Antivirus is a common name among the anti-malware users that sits near the top of their lists. Amazingly lightweight and convenient, the antivirus is impressive for its quick and efficient detection of known and unknown malwares of every sort.
As its very name suggests, the antivirus is based on cloud technology of virus scanning. It is connected to the Collective Intelligence servers of Panda labs in order to protect the computer against even the newest threats. This is the mystery of its being so lightweight and working so swiftly. The cloud-supplied data are checked by the process manager to effectively determine whether a running process is malicious. The behavior analysis approach helps tracking potentially malicious software to shield the computer from them. The software, as a first-class antivirus does, provides a variety of scans. There are three types of scan: ‘Optimized Scan’ –a semi-quick scan, ‘Scan My Computer’ –a full scan of the whole system, and ‘Custom Scan’ for a specific area, file or drive. However, the most interesting feature that makes the software unique is called ‘Autorun and USB Vaccination’. When an external drive is connected to the computer it gears automatically. The unique feature of the antivirus particularly bars them from auto running, and instead examines them for possible malware threats.
Cloud Antivirus sports a sleek and charming interface which is very easy to navigate. It would suffice to say that Panda Cloud Antivirus Free Edition shares all the core functions of its Pro version, making it absolutely reliable to a user. This software is compatible with all the latest versions of Windows operating system starting from Windows XP, Vista, 7 and 8.
