Panda Global Protection 2014 Editor's Review

Nowadays, the need to secure the data in your computers and other web access devices has increased manifold. With increased web access speed and emergence of portable devices like tablets to access web and share data, data security can no longer be tackled by a typical antivirus solution. You have to consider incidents like Facebook founder’s personal images getting hacked or actors ending up in trouble over data getting leaked online, which made headlines. While Internet security suites offer enhanced protection compared to standalone antivirus apps, you can opt for more comprehensive safety coverage. Panda Global Protection is one such app that offers comprehensive security for multiple PC and devices.

As a matter of fact, Panda was among the first security app makers to switch to cloud based protection. It turns out to be beneficial for both the company and users in long run. The company keeps a central database updated which can be accessed by the subscribed users online. The updated version of Panda Global Protection works on this mechanism and it extends safety coverage to other devices apart from the desktop and laptop. It will cover up to 3 devices including Macs, PCs and Android devices. Users of iOS devices may grudge but their devices can still be scanned by Panda when those are connected to a Mac which has the app installed.  

The app offers support for PCs running Windows XP and later editions. Unlike many other rival security apps, Panda can run on computers with older hardware with ease. Its installation is simple and after the process is done you have to create an account for your product at Panda site. This account is required when you want to update the information or report any problem later. This account creation and customization is quite simple. The app is multilingual and support is provided through usual methods like email and also through social media platforms.

It is quite evident that Panda has taken Windows 8 interface as the inspiration source for Global Protection’s newest iteration. The main interface comprises of bright tiles that let you access core functions. The row at bottom of the interface shows status of various components and services such as identity protection, parental control, anti-spam, firewall and antivirus. Tiles in middle row of app interface are meant for using multi-device protection, scanning, backup and quarantine etc. The top row displays scan results and similar statistics. There are small icons for activating virtual keyboard and password management as well. Panda has focused on ease of usage for users of this security suite and made app interface quite appealing.

Apart from providing protection from all types of online and offline threats, the suite also offers you 2 GB online backup option for your data for free. If you need more cloud storage space, subscription is required. Of course, you can store data in the PC itself or in external devices and network attached storage devices if you want. There is an option for setting up periodic backup schedule using the suite. It also comes with a safe browser to open sites that you are skeptical about. The other safety mechanisms include a virtual keyboard that makes entering passwords for online purchases safer and a USB vaccination that safeguards the PC from pen drives containing malware or Trojan horses. The icing on cake is a bundled network manager app.

Much in the line with industry leading security suites, Panda Global Protection offers more features than safety from malware and online threats to users. It comes with file shredding, file encryption and PC optimization tools. There is an option for remote PC access as well. To let you enjoy hour of gaming and watching movies in full screen mode without interruptions, it offers a dedicated gamer mode. It would have been great if a registry cleanup and tweaking tool was also provided.

The parental control offered by Panda Global Protection is quite powerful and with it you can create specific user profiles. Based on these profile settings and customizations, you can set website blocking and restrict others from finding your personal data online. With Panda’s identity protection features, you can make details like credit card numbers and phone numbers inaccessible.

While Panda scores well when it comes to malware detection and infection removal, same cannot be said about its scanning speed. The anti-spam and antivirus engine integrates well with Windows shell. Demanding users may need to tweak other components a bit post installation.

While Panda offers overall good protection from diverse malware and its bundled utility tools keep PC in top shape, there are some hiccups that may ruffle some users. The inclusion of a safe browser seems a great idea but it requires you to download and install a sandbox application namely Sun VirtualBox. The browser is not installed by default with the app. The Mac version runs only on 64-bit Mac and requires Mac OS X 10.6 or later versions.

Positive Points:
•    Simple Installation, low system requirement.
•    Good malware detection and removal.
•    Custom profile in parental control section.
•    Gamer mode and bundled utilities.

 Negative Points:
•    Scan speed is average.
•    No coverage for iOS devices by default.
•    Safe Browser installation is tedious.
•    Meager amount of free online storage limit.

Conclusion:
Panda Global Protection offers comprehensive protection from malware and online threats. The additional goodies like online backup and system tweaking utilities are useful additions. Its interface is a joy to use and help section is adequate. However, on closer inspection and comparison with rival apps, you may find a few glitches. It would have been better if the limit for free online data backup was beyond 2GB, for practical usage scenario. The appeal of safe browser gets marred by the fact that you need to download and configure a third party sandbox tool. However, these aspects will not deter users who looking primarily for PC and device security.

Rating: 3.5/5







Panda Global Protection 2014 Publisher's Description

After a quick installation process, you can get acquainted with the user-friendly interface, as well as view the protection (antivirus, firewall, identity, vulnerabilities, anti-spam filter, parental control) and maintenance utilities (automatic backup copy, online backup, optimize performance), and configure their settings.

Scanning can be performed in three ways - quickly (scans the memory, running processes, cookies), fully or custom. It does not take a long while to finish, and during this time you can view the numbers of scanned, infected and resolved files. Plus, you can schedule a scan, view events reports, statistics, and quarantined malicious agents (name, original location, reason, status).

Furthermore, you can select the items you want to scan (files on disk, mail, instant messaging, Internet browsing) and threats to detect and exclude, enable behavioral analysis and heuristic scanning, enable Panda firewall protection as well as protection against fraudulent websites (and adjust the level of sensitivity), enable the anti-spam filter (e.g. create a list of trusted senders) and web content control (e.g. create a whitelist and blacklist).
