Panda Security, a leader in IT security, has launched a beta version of Panda Antivirus Pro 2009 compatible with Windows 7. Now all users of the beta version of Microsoft’s new operating system will be able to install the best protection against malware at no cost and with minimal resource consumption. This beta version can be downloaded from: http://www.pandasecurity.com/windows7/
Windows 7 is a new operating system from Microsoft which is set to replace Windows Vista. This new system includes a series of improvements in performance and efficiency, an improved interface and better information management. Panda Antivirus Pro provides greater 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.
The beta of Panda Antivirus Pro 2009 for Windows 7 includes, in addition to the award-winning Panda Security scan engine, a powerful heuristic engine for detecting new malware variants and a heuristic system specialized in combating banker Trojans and identity theft malware. The beta also includes new ‘cloud’ detection technology called Collective Intelligence which Panda Security has been building into its products for more than a year, allowing it to rapidly detect new malware. This technology is particularly important in today’s climate, where most infections are caused by viruses that are less than 30 days old. It is therefore crucial to detect these new threats within the first month of their existence and this is why Panda is able to better protect users through Collective Intelligence.
“With the traditional protection model, IT security companies have to receive a new example of malware, analyze and classify it manually then create and distribute the vaccine. This simply takes too long. Collective Intelligence lets us automate these tasks, thereby speeding up the process. Protection from the cloud, on the other hand, lets us provide malware vaccines to our users as soon as we have generated them, protecting them in real-time”, says Pedro Bustamante, Consumer Unit Director.
