Panda Security, the Spain-based antivirus software, released a new free antivirus program called Panda Cloud Antivirus. Cloud here refers to the servers spread across Internet like clouds. Panda Cloud Antivirus works by sending and receiving data and files to Panda servers on the Internet for scans, instead of using your PC’s resources. Download here. Some of the highlight features are
- Always updated to protect against the powerful viruses like Conficker and Koobface before attack and new malware in almost real time.
- Very light weight as it connects to Collective Intelligence servers in the cloud to protect your computer, without requiring traditional updates or penalizing the performance of your system.
- Panda Cloud Antivirus uses 50MB of drive space and 17MB of RAM.
- It also functions when not connected to the Internet by accessing its local cache.
