Software Review: Panda Cloud Antivirus 1.1 BETA! May 29, 2010

A few posts ago I talked about how I was a Panda Cloud Forum Trusted MOD, for today’s post I am going to post a review of the product I help with. The current stable version of Panda Cloud Antivirus is v1.0.1 but I am going to go review the latest beta version 1.1.

The major difference between 1.1 and 1.0.1 is the new behavior blocker, behavior analysis engine, self protection module, exclude list, and many other minor bug fixes. Normally I stay away from betas and wait for the final version to be released but since I have been running this beta I have not found 1 bug that needs to be fixed. Now all AV programs are different so make sure you have a back up if you think about trying this.

Now the most common question when I share Panda Cloud AV to people is that they fear Panda Cloud is sending personal files to the PCAV CI servers so Panda can spy on them. This is no way true Panda only sends PE files to the PCAV servers (.exe, .dll, .reg) and does not send (.PDF, .doc) so none of your personal files are sent to the PCAV servers. Also most of the time just file hashes are sent to the server not full files. Another good part of the cloud is that without all the files being scanned on your PC it does not use as much memory as many other AV products. With all the AV’s I have tested Panda has had the least slow down on my machine.

For detection rates Panda is near the top, with detection rates up high and the behavior blockers guarding your PC you will be very protected.

10/10 stars
