AV-Comparatives confirms a 99.9% detection ratio
During the more than 150,000 âreal worldâ proactive detection tests carried out from March to June this year by the AV-Comparatives independent laboratory, Panda Securityâs free anti-malware solution managed to detect and block 99.9% of threats.
This comparative test of over 20 antivirus solutions highlights the great protection capacity of Panda Securityâs solution, beating out other free products such as Avast, AVG or Microsoftâs antivirus; or pay solutions including Kaspersky, McAfee and Sophos.

100% detection ratio, according to AV-TEST
Similarly, in the âReal-World Protectionâ test carried out by AV-TEST in May and June, Panda Cloud Antivirus also racked up the maximum score, with a 100% detection ratio for the second consecutive month. Out of 23 products tested by the laboratory, only three achieved the maximum detection rate, and one of these was Panda Cloud Antivirus, the free solution from Panda Security.
In addition to these excellent detection results, itâs important to note that Panda Security has scored maximum points in the AV-TEST âMonthly Consumer Product Testingâ performance test in June.

New XMT Smart Engineering engine
The results from both these labs are based on tests carried out on products based on the new XMT (Extreme Malware Terminator) Smart Engineering engine from Panda Security. With XMT, different technologies interact with each other to achieve new levels of efficiency and greater detection and disinfection power to eradicate all threats. The new XMT engine will be included in the new 2015 consumer product line that Panda Security will be presenting in August.
âThe best thing is that the platform and engine with which weâre achieving these results are the basis of all our endpoint protection products. Our aim is to continue integrating technologies in the platform to stay in pole position when it comes to detection and provide our users with maximum protection and minimum impact on their systemsâ, says Luis Corrons, Technical Director of PandaLabs at Panda Security.
Panda Cloud Antivirus 3.0
Panda Security presented Panda Cloud Antivirus version 3.0 last May, after a trial phase during which the product was downloaded more than 30,000 times across 130 countries. The new solution includes, in both the âFreeâ and âProâ editions a new more modern and intuitive âlook and feelâ. The solution also delivers improved protection technologies against new threats and attacks that exploit software vulnerabilities and automatically vaccinates USB drives, a feature which is now available to all users of the product, and not just the Pro version, as in the past.
It also includes the highly useful Rescue Kit for dealing with emergencies caused by malware, as well as a more complete process monitor.
