Panda Cloud Antivirus- Free Edition Editor's Review

Panda was among the companies those paved way for cloud based security service. Now, several other contenders including heavyweights like McAfee have resorted to the same route. However, Panda Cloud Antivirus, which comes in both free and paid iteration continue to be capable of thwarting multiple malware and online threats. What has remained unchanged in the new version of Panda Cloud Antivirus is its low system footprint. Just like its predecessor, Panda’s cloud based security app runs smoothly even on older PCs, giving several heavyweight contenders a run for their money.

The tiny size installer can be downloaded in a jiffy and installation process is smooth. However, you may choose not to install the Panda Toolbar. Installing on infected PCs can prove to be tedious in some cases. It supports windows XP and later versions of OSes. Owing to the cloud based definitions, your PC’s defense goes down when you are offline. However, most security threats take online route nowadays. To fend off malware sneaking through USB ports, Panda disables USB auto run by default.

Panda Cloud Antivirus sports a neat and minimalistic design, with nothing unnecessary cramped in. However, if you find using it tedious on a heavily malware affected system, use free Panda Cloud Cleaner first to disinfect the system. Panda does a good job of malware detection and performs on par with paid rivals. It is also very effective against rootkits. However, a few free Anti malware tools like AVG does fare better than Panda Cloud Antivirus in overall malware detection and cleanup.

Panda gets high rates by virus lab test including those by West Coast Labs and ICSA Labs. AV-Comparatives gives it ADVANCED+ score, indicating its superior performance in both malware removal and detection. AV-Test has given it ADVANCED score in its real-world test. While Panda scores well in such tests, it is outshined by some contenders like Kaspersky and Bitdefender by a fair margin.

The Achilles’ hill for Panda Cloud Antivirus is its Phishing protection score. It lags behind most contenders in this segment. It does score below SmartScreen Filter of IE, as it is.

Positive Points:
 - Small footprint, will not slow down older systems.
 - Support for older Windows versions.
 - Decent malware detection and cleanup.
 - Excellent rootkit protection.

Negative Points:
 - Protection level goes down in offline mode.
 - Dismal Anti phishing performance.
 - Rivals score better in both lab and real world tests.
 - Tedious installation on infected PCs.

Conclusion:
Panda Cloud Antivirus free edition is suitable for PC users under certain circumstances. If you have a clean system and remain online most of the time, it is a good option. Its malware prevention and removal performance is good. The app’s superb root kit thwarting capability also deserves praise. You get it for free and the interface is also pretty intuitive and straightforward to use. However, installing the app on a malware infested system can take a long time. Its mediocre score in anti phishing scene stops it from claiming spot of the top free antivirus.  

Rating: 2.5/5
