"PandaLabs identifies an average of 73,000 new malware strains each day, and being able to neutralize these threats before they infect the PC is essential," explained Alberto Anon, Panda Cloud Antivirus Product Manager.
Panda Cloud Antivirus 2.1 provides real-time protection for Windows 8 applications, as well as numerous improvements to its interface, better performance and even lighter footprint.
As with all other product updates, many of these improvements are based on the feedback received from the active community of Panda Cloud Antivirus users though the Panda Cloud Antivirus Forum.
Since Cloud Antivirus' initial release in 2009, millions of home users around the world have benefitted from its award-winning free antivirus protection and incredibly lightweight footprint. The latter is a major benefit of Collective Intelligence, Panda's proprietary technology for automatically collecting and processing millions of malware samples in the cloud instead of locally on the user's PC.
