Panda Security, The Cloud Security Company, today announced the launch of its new line of consumer solutions. Panda Global Protection 2015, Panda Internet Security 2015, Panda Antivirus Pro 2015, along with Panda Mobile Security 2.0 and Panda Gold Protection are the five products included in the security company’s 2015 consumer line which this year boasts the new XMT Smart Engineering engine as its main new feature.
The Panda XMT engine showcases its excellent capabilities in the latest comparative tests conducted by independent laboratories such as AV-Comparatives, AV-TEST and Virus Bulletin where Panda Security achieved the best scores in detection, protection, usability and resource use. With XMT, layered technologies interact with each other to achieve new levels of efficiency and greater detection and disinfection power to eradicate all threats.
“With 160,000 new malware samples discovered every day, as reported by PandaLabs’ Q2 report, we are aware of the need to provide users with the best protection. The best thing about the XMT engine, with which we’re achieving the industry leading detection ratios, is it’s now the basis of all our endpoint protection products,” said Álvaro Elorriaga, Global Retail Director at Panda Security. “Our aim is to continue integrating technologies in the platform to stay in pole position when it comes to detection, and provide our users with maximum protection with minimum impact on their systems”.
Minimum impact on performance
Designed to provide complete protection with minimal performance impact, Panda Security’s new 2015 Consumer solutions harness the power of cloud computing to combat the myriad security threats users face every day: viruses, hackers, online fraud, identity theft and all other known and unknown threats.
As well as the XMT engine, Panda Security’s 2015 solutions incorporate cross-platform protection included in Panda Global Protection 2015 for Mac OS and Android mobile devices.
Advanced users will find additional layers of protection with Data Shield, a new module to protect user data against malware such as ransomware that tries to access sensitive information with malicious purposes (theft, deletion and encryption) and application control to block unknown applications from running.
Additionally, the 2015 versions of Panda Internet Security 2015 and Panda Antivirus Pro 2015 include improved protection capabilities against viruses, hackers and Wi-Fi intrusions thanks to a Wi-Fi monitor that provides full visibility into all the devices connected to the wireless network. Along with these features, Panda Internet Security 2015 helps protect users’ children, identity and data with parental control, and online backup functionalities.
“Despite Panda Antivirus Pro 2015 being the entry-level solution, the truth is that it is much more than a simple antivirus – providing fast and intuitive protection for Windows, it also includes other features such as a firewall, virtual keyboard, rescue kit and multimedia options”, explained Hervé Lambert, Retail Product Marketing Manager at Panda Security.
New Panda Mobile Security Now Available on Google Play
Panda Mobile Security 2.0 is now available on Google Play. This solution, designed to protect Android devices, includes features such as geolocation and anti-theft to remotely locate, lock and wipe lost or stolen devices. The new version is much more intuitive and user-friendly than before thanks to a brand new look and feel.
Panda Gold Protection
Panda Security’s 2015 Consumer product line also includes Panda Gold Protection, a complete solution designed to protect users’ data regardless of the device they are using: PC, Mac, and Android smartphones, tablets and Smart TVs. Panda Gold Protection is the only product in the entire 2015 line that features Panda Cloud Drive, an online backup and sync service with 20 GB of free space that allows users to store files securely in the cloud and access them from any computer, mobile device or Web browser at any time.
