Panda 'Cloud' FREE Antivirus (download)
« on: 29. April 2009., 17:07:08 »


Panda Cloud Antivirus - The first FREE Antivirus from the cloud with the power of a global community.

Panda use cloud computing technology, which they call Collective Intelligence, to detect viruses, malware, rootkits, and heuristics. It takes advantage of "millions of users," according to Panda, to identify new malware almost in real time. Panda says that Collective Intelligence can classify new malware in under six minutes, and that it handles more than 50,000 new samples per day. The Cloud Antivirus works by classifying threats into executables that must be scanned immediately, and non-executables that are checked at a lower priority--usually when the computer is idle.


Features:

- Antivirus & Antispyware protection from the cloud

- Anti-Rootkits protection against hidden threats

- Online & Offline permanent protection

- Improved offline protection by disabling Autorun on your PC

- Behavioral blocking of new & unknown threats

- Advanced configuration and exclusion for experts

- Product localized into 20 different languages

For the curious, Panda Security is an EU company founded in Spain, not a Chinese one, as might be implied by its namesake. I personally think - given the recent disclosures about Chinese hackers tied to the Chinese government - that the Panda name is definitely an unfortunate one for a computer security company.

My name’s Sean-Paul and I'm a Threat Researcher and Security Evangelist at Panda, and I just came across this thread. I'm excited to see the discussion here on Cloud Antivirus.

azazur - to answer your question, it detects just as much as other Panda AV products, so it's pretty secure.

With that said, I hope you're liking Cloud Antivirus, and please let me know your experience and thoughts with the product. It's very helpful to hear feedback since this is a beta.

Hi Sean-Paul and Welcome to SCF Community.

In my opinion this project is excellent. :thumbsup: 

As I remember Microsoft have similar project with Windows Defender (formerly Windows AntiSpyware) caled SpyNet??

http://windowshelp.microsoft.com/Windows/en-US/help/b15d099f-68f5-4512-8bd2-68dd0dc9875e1033.mspx


Also I have another question, I want to test by myself "Cloud" AV but I'm not sure did I need to uninstall my current AV (McAfee VSE 8.5i)??


I would also like to hear your Feedback about our work here and SCF Community??


Best Regards,

Samker

Thanks so much for the warm welcome! Collective Intelligence does have some similar characteristics as Microsoft’s SpyNet, but it’s much more than that. If you want to learn more about it in detail, we have some really great in-depth content posted on the Cloud Antivirus blog. Here's the link: http://blog.cloudantivirus.com/

Regarding the uninstall, yes you do need to uninstall any other AV program you have running, as Cloud Antivirus AV is a full AV product with real-time protection. We also touch on this on the blog, but if Cloud Antivirus detects the presence of another AV, the Cloud Antivirus install will likely be stopped.

Great forum, and again, thanks for the welcome into your community.

@ Sean-Paul
Its providing a really good protection Sean-Paul. I have given some feedback too about the product. The version that is for download on www.cloudantivirus.com detects many viruses but it just blocks it. The file remains at the place where it actually is. I suggested the support forum to introduce a feature in which when a virus is detected it automatically removes it(completely) from the PC and if it can't, the feature will provide option of deleting it or moving it to quarantine. The feature is available in main Panda software like Panda AV and Panda IS. This feature is basic one and its present in almost all free AVs like avira, Avast, AVG....many other.

I really appreciate the initiative you people have taken to make such a great security software and provide them free, but the feature which i am talking about is a basic one. Please Note it and try to include it in your next update...

Thanks...
DEVILISHERE

Isn't this similar to the new Artemis system in McAfee Enterprise?  It sends a hash out to one of the McAfee servers to check it against possible new spyware/malware.
