AV-Comparatives Awards 2022 for Panda
Panda achieved great success in AV-Comparatives’ Consumer Main-Test Series of 2022. The tests covered different protection scenarios, system performance, and false positives.
Testers 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.
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.
