Panda Cloud Antivirus is one of the first cloud based antivirus to emerge on the Internet. It was originally released on November 2009 and the stable release was made available only about a month ago on July 20th 2011.
The Operating systems that Panda Cloud Antivirus supports are Windows XP, Windows Vista and Windows 7. It works on both 32 bit and 64 bit computers and this antivirus is free to download.
Panda Antivirus also has a toll free number (only for US) where you can get phone support when you have problems installing the Cloud antivirus free edition. You can reach the tech support on 888 909 5553 and I am sure they will try to upsell a product or two. In any case it’s good that they are willing to support even the free edition users.
I read a couple of reviews about the Cloud Antivirus including from the Cnet and Softpedia websites. What I have learnt is that the antivirus software is an attempt to detect the newest threats related to virus, malware and other nasty stuffs on the internet. It uses very less computer resource since the detection part is taken care by the Panda servers with Panda’s Collective Intelligence technology.
Panda Cloud Antivirus is a free antivirus download which is light weight and does a decent job of protecting your computer from security threats. It is not suggested to use this protection software on a computer which is already infested with virus, malware and spyware.
When you open Cloud Antivirus after installing you will be shown with a window with a button to let you know if your computer is OK or not. If it is red in color then that is where you need to worry about the status of your computer security. There is also a certain discomfort among many reviewers and the public about the data collection part. Being a popular company that Panda antivirus is you do not have to worry about much about your data because I am sure they would not want to be looked down as a bad Security Company.
