Panda Cloud Antivirus Pro is the paid version of Panda Cloud Antivirus, featuring advanced options and additional support.
Like its free counterpart, Panda Cloud Antivirus Pro offers complete system protection without necessarily taking up half of your resources or showing nagging windows all the time.
Panda Cloud Antivirus Pro is based on cloud computing, which means it’s only partially installed on your system and keeps core files on a dedicated server on the internet. Thanks to this special cloud structure, Panda Cloud Antivirus Pro doesn't have to be manually updated. You can forget about complicated configurations and having to download new signature files!
The cloud-based functionality doesn't mean you remain unprotected when disconnected from the network: Panda Cloud Antivirus Pro features a local cache that keeps the program up and running, working at 100%.
Panda Cloud Antivirus Pro features two types of analysis: Optimized scan – which presumably analyzes the most important areas in the system, though you can’t know for sure – and Other scans, where you can select specific folders and files to be analyzed. The program includes a behavioral analysis and blocking system that detects suspicious actions typically carried out by malware. Another nice feature in Panda Cloud Antivirus Pro is the USB vaccine tool, which protects your computer from potentially dangerous files on portable USB memory devices.
Though Panda Cloud Antivirus Pro can’t be scheduled to run automatic scans and doesn’t include filters for web or email, it’s still a solid antivirus for netbooks and low-spec computers.
Panda Cloud Antivirus Pro is a lightweight, simple to use antivirus tool that keeps your system safe without nagging you with messages and updates.
