Pros & Cons:

  • Good detection rates and behavioural analysis program
  • Fairly good web protection and hardware resource handling
  • Dependant on internet connection leading to weaker offline protection
  • Slow scanning speed, no fingerprinting (successive re-testing same files) and at times issues with virus removal

  • Certain false positives despite the information available at cloud
  • Watch out for Panda security toolbar during install
