Panda Security Detects 100% of malware, According to AV- Comparatives

Panda Security has obtained a 100% detection rate on February’s Real-World Protection Test from the independent labs of AV- Comparatives. The Real-World Test is recognized in the industry for providing an accurate reflection of the protection offered by cybersecurity solutions readily available on the market

Panda Security obtained the highest possible score, topping the list of twenty other providers that also underwent testing.

The analysis, which is available here, takes into account the same infection vectors that a user might experience on any normal day (browsing websites containing malicious content or exploits, running a virus received by email, etc.). In this case, Panda Free Antivirus was able to detect 100% of the malware to which it had been exposed. The fundamental objective of the Real-World Test is to determine if security solutions are able to protect the system as it is exposed to an array of malware samples.

Panda Security, 100% Detection and Zero False Positives in AV- Comparatives’ Most Rigorous Test

“We are especially pleased with the excellent results obtained in the AV-Comparatives Real-World Test because they validate our efforts to offer our users the best protection against all types of threats in real conditions. We are fully committed to the constant improvement of our solutions in order to provide maximum security levels with minimum performance impact, being more aggressive towards threats the bigger the risk of infection” said Alberto Añón, Consumer Product Manager in Panda Security

This result speaks to the success of the set of technologies present in the company’s cybersecurity solutions, ideal for all types of users, private or professional, and for everyone from freelancers to large corporations.

Panda Security has developed its products in response to the rapid evolution of malware in recent years. In this regard, it offers the most effective response to threats like ransomware and proves to be the best ally in the prevention, protection and response to the latest attacks.

Don’t Let Yahoo Happen To You: How to Protect Your Business from Large-Scale Data Theft


In 2016, the theft of passwords from internet titans is no longer an exception. Just when it seemed like the year was winding down, having left us with the surprising news of what until yesterday was considered the highest magnitude cyberattack in history suffered by Yahoo and reported three months ago, this same company returns to headlines after announcing the theft of data from 1 billion accounts.

This comes on the tail of some revealing figures. For example, massive data breaches have, amazingly, affected 97% of the 1000 largest companies in the world.

After admitting last September that in 2014 they had suffered a large-scale theft that affected 500 million users, Yahoo revealed today that in 2013 it suffered what is now considered the worst incident of information piracy in history with the theft of 1 billion accounts.

There’s a strong resemblance between this attack and the ones we’ve been analyzing over the past months. These recent attacks showcase the way cybercriminals gain access to names, email addresses, phone numbers, dates of birth, passwords, and in some cases clients’ encrypted and unencrypted security questions. The dimensions of the incident are truly staggering.

Yahoo disclosed that “an unauthorized third party” accessed the data and that at this time the culprit remains unnamed.

Economic repercussions aside, these incidents also call into question the issue of deteriorating user confidence. For example, Verizon’s initiative to integrate Yahoo into the AOL platform will certainly come under scrutiny.

How Should You Keep Your Business Safe?

There’s a legitimate reason to fear for your business’s confidential information. An outsider capable of getting the key to your company’s data, as happened at Yahoo, is a latent risk. Prevention has become the greatest asset in combating Black Hats and avoiding some of the dire consequences of these attacks.
