Panda Security Launches New 2009 Consumer Solutions Offering Maximum Protection with Minimum Consumption on Users' PCs

Panda Internet Security 2009, Antivirus Pro 2009, and Global Protection 2009 Utilize Proprietary Cloud Computing Technology to Deliver the Ultimate Protection against Spam, Malware and Identity Theft

GLENDALE, Calif., Aug. 27 /PRNewswire/ -- Panda Security, (http://www.pandasecurity.com/usa/) a leading provider of IT security solutions, today announced the general availability of its 2009 retail product line. The new products, Panda Internet Security 2009, Panda Antivirus Pro 2009 and Panda Global Protection 2009, offer the highest level of protection in the industry with minimum resource consumption. By extending Panda's proprietary Collective Intelligence technology across all three products, users will benefit from faster and more efficient detection and disinfection rates; minimum PC bandwidth consumption; and full vision and traceability of the latest malware techniques and distribution points.

"Panda Security is the first and only company to extend the incredible benefits of cloud computing to consumer PC users through our innovative Collective Intelligence technology," said Ryan Sherstobitoff, chief corporate evangelist for Panda Security. "Buying the Panda 2009 products is like subscribing to an online security service that intelligently protects users without them even noticing."

Collective Intelligence works as an online, real-time database that stores the majority of signature files in the cloud, minimizing resource consumption on the user's PC. The new products not only use Collective Intelligence to carry out on-demand scans via the cloud but also protect users surfing the Web, determine if emails are safe or not, provide better protection against unknown malware and scan programs shared through instant messaging applications. Through Collective Intelligence, literally every Panda user becomes a sensor for new threats, instantly sending statistical data about malware prevalence back to the cloud upon detection. This innovative model not only detects more malware than traditional antivirus labs, but is also able to proactively detect and remediate previously undetectable threats before they cause damage.

Another highlight of Panda Security's consumer solutions is the use of its innovative, powerful "Identity Protect" technology, which uses a heuristic scanner to proactively detect any attempts to steal confidential data. Panda's new solutions also include a new engine for neutralizing banker Trojans. Furthermore, both Panda Internet Security 2009 and Panda Global Protection 2009 incorporate a personal data filter which allows users to define confidential information (account numbers, passwords, etc.) that should not leave the PC without the user's consent.

Another new key feature is the TruPrevent 2.0 engine for behavior-based malware detection. This engine provides protection against unknown malware and attacks exploiting vulnerabilities. The new version of TruPrevent has been greatly improved, increasing the detection rate substantially while decreasing the number of false positives. By combining Collective Intelligence and TruPrevent technologies, Panda is capable of detecting the most sophisticated malware on the Internet.

Finally, the new anti-spam engine included in Panda Internet Security 2009 and Panda Global Protection 2009 uses Collective Intelligence technology to increase the spam detection rate, and eliminate the vast majority of unwanted email.

Panda's new retail products include the following features and benefits:

-- Panda Antivirus Pro 2009, offers fast, easy-to-use protection, provides higher protection against viruses, spyware and hackers, and includes a new engine against identity theft. Similarly, it prevents hackers from getting into the computer, thanks to its built-in Panda firewall. It is mainly aimed at users who need an easy-to-install, basic solution. The price of a license is $39.95 for up to three PCs and $29.95 for one PC.

-- Panda Internet Security 2009, Panda Security's integrated suite for all types of threats, protects consumers from viruses, spyware, hackers, identity theft and all other Internet-borne threats. Internet Security 2009 includes a new anti-spam filter and parental control so children can surf the Internet safely. It is aimed at families and users who require maximum protection to use the Internet with complete peace of mind. The price of a license is $49.95 for up to three PCs and $34.95 for one PC.

-- Panda Global Protection 2009, Panda Security's brand new consumer solution, incorporates new features from the other retail products and also includes a 2 GB premium online backup system and system restoring tools. These features help protect the most important files against accidental loss or damage. Global Protection 2009 is aimed at advanced Internet users who need to carry out multiple online activities (purchases, bank transactions, tax return payments, etc.). It is also suitable for users working from home. The price of a license is $69.95 for up to three PCs and $49.95 for one PC.
