The easiest-to-use and most intuitive protection for your computer.

NEW PRODUCT FEATURES

Collective Intelligence. Maximum Protection with Minimum Impact.

Panda Security's Collective Intelligence works as an online and real-time database that stores the majority of signature files, keeping them at a minimum on the endpoint. Every Panda user is a sensor for new malware, sending samples back to the cloud.

With Panda 2008 range of products protection was purely based on the users' PCs installed signature file. With the new Collective Intelligence approach Panda 2009 products also send regular queries to the cloud.

  • Web navigation, eMail and Instant Messaging (IM). Panda sends queries to the cloud whenever an executable program is received. Keep in mind that it is not very common to receive executables, dll files, etc via this media.
  • On-access scan (processes/libraries loaded in memory). How does it work? Imagine that 40 files are loaded in memory; Panda sends a query to the cloud and confirms them to be good ware. A couple of hours later, there are 42 programs uploaded in memory, from which 40 were already loaded and checked before. Panda will ONLY perform the check for the new 2 programs, since the other 40 have been checked before. A minimum PC and bandwidth consumption is used when sending queries to the cloud.
  • On-demand scans. Whether is automatic or on-demand, Panda also sends queries to the cloud.

What are the main benefits for the users?

  • Faster and better detection rate
  • Faster and better disinfection rate
  • Minimum PC resources and bandwidth consumption
  • Furthermore the community feature of Collective Intelligence provides a full vision and full traceability of the new malware techniques and distribution points. This knowledge allows Panda to continuously improve the protection of its customers.
