Global cloud company, Panda Security, has announced that Panda Internet Security 2011 has been certified by prestigious independent laboratory AV-Test in its Quarter 1 2011 Product Review and Certification Report.
During the first quarter of 2011, AV-Test reviewed 22 security solutions in the areas of protection, repair and usability. The solution from Panda Security detected 100% of samples in the malware batch used by AV-Test, as well as those from its "in the wild" list.
The AV-Test "protection" tests covered static and dynamic malware detection, including real-world 0-day attacks. In the case of "repair", they checked system disinfection and rootkit removal in detail. Finally, the "usability" testing included the system slow-down caused by the tools.
Panda Internet Security 2011 reached 5 out of 6 in protection, and 4.5 out of 6 in repair and usability. Only 17 of the 22 products passed all the tests and were judged worthy of AV-Test’s certified badge.
"It’s important to have robust and certified protection against Web-based threats," says Jeremy Matthews, head of Panda’s sub-Saharan operations. "Panda Internet Security offers this kind of protection as well as greater user flexibility, making it a great solution," he concludes.
