AV-Comparatives Awards 2021 for Panda
Panda participated successfully in AV-Comparatives’ Enterprise and Consumer Main Test Series of 2021. The tests covered different protection scenarios, system performance, and false positives.
We found Panda Free Antivirus to be very straightforward to install and use. The program interface is simple to navigate, and safe default options are provided. On-access protection means that files are scanned for malware when you copy them to your PC. The program window displays a “news ticker” with security news headlines, linked to Panda’s security blog.
Panda Endpoint Protection Plus on Aether provides a cloud-based console for managing the endpoint protection software. The product can manage networks with tens of thousands of devices. We feel it would also be suitable for smaller businesses with tens of seats.
AV-Comparatives’ tests are very carefully designed and executed to thoroughly and realistically simulate scenarios that face users in real life. Consequently, a certification by AV-Comparatives is a guarantee of an effective and reliable product. An “Approved Product” award means that the software has been rigorously checked to ensure that it will perform its intended task competently. It is an industry-recognised standard of quality.
AV-Comparatives’ tests have multiple aspects, to represent the different requirements of IT security solutions. Further awards highlight the effectiveness of individual programs in different protection scenarios, low false positives, and low impact on system performance. Users can thus see which programs score highly in the categories that matter most to them.

AV-Comparatives Awards for Panda
Panda achieved creditable results in AV-Comparatives’ Consumer and Enterprise Main Test Series of 2021. Both series included a number of rigorous tests, covering different protection scenarios, false positives, and impact on system performance.
Panda was able to master all of these, and so received an Approved Business Security Product Award for both runs of the Enterprise Series, along with an Approved Product Award for the Consumer Series. In the latter, it took two Advanced+ Awards for the Performance Tests, Advanced Awards for both of the Real-World Protection Tests, and a Standard Award in the first Malware Protection Test.
