anda Security received the highest certification level of Advanced+ and performed better overall than all of the competition, including Symantec, ESET, AVG, Kaspersky, F-Secure and Trend Micro. This test released on 23 August reviewed the impact of security suites on system performance and underscores the effectiveness of Panda's proactive and cloud protection technologies in detecting new malware, while minimising impact on users' PCs performance.
"It's becoming increasingly important that anti-virus software provides high detection and remediation rates without degrading system performance," said Andreas Clementi, chairman, AV-Comparatives.org. "Panda Security's approach in bringing malware detection and analysis into the cloud has proven to be an effective way to tackle this complex issue."
All of the consumer and business solutions offered by Panda Security have Collective Intelligence, the company's cloud-based technology for automating the identification and remediation of malware threats instantaneously. Collective Intelligence leverages Panda's global network of millions of users, referred to as the Power of Community, to deliver real-time protection against new and unknown threats. This protection model decreases PC resource consumption significantly and is the primary reason for the product's high scores in PC performance impact. Panda Internet Security 2011, and Panda's other consumer security suites, boast a 50% improvement in performance on Windows 7 environments when compared to last year's versions.
In addition to the performance impact review by AV-Comparatives.org, Panda Security has achieved top scores in many recent independent tests including:
