Panda Cloud Antivirus has achieved the Advanced+ rating in the latest on-demand malware detection testing carried out by the independent review lab AV-Comparatives.
The test, which compared 20 free and paid antivirus programs, showcased the detection capabilities of Panda Security’s product. Version 1.5.1 of Panda Cloud Antivirus successfully detected 99.3 percent of the more than 200,000 samples used by AV-Comparatives.
The AV-Comparatives tests also included a false positive detection report. Panda incorrectly detected only one clean file as malware, whereas other free antivirus solutions like Avast or Avira had 10 or more false positives, and AVG and Symantec reported 51 and 57 false positives respectively.
