Panda Cloud Antivirus 2.1 with anti-exploit protection

We want to announce availability of the new Panda Cloud Antivirus 2.1, the first free cloud antivirus!

We are really excited with this version because it integrates a very important new feature in both FREE and PRO Editions: we have reinforced our behavioural protection with an anti-exploit technology, which detects and neutralizes malware that exploits zero-day vulnerabilities (Java, Adobe, MS Office..) like Blackhole or Redkit before it infects the PC.

With the continued growth of malware threats and variants, traditional signature-based protection is not enough. Thanks to the Collective Intelligence, we can analyze in our Labs the common behaviour of this kind of malware and adapt our technologies to detect new variants before they are known.

Additionally, we have included in this version real-time protection for Windows 8 Store apps, UI improvements and bug fixes. And, as we continuously do in every version, we have added performance improvements to maintain Panda Cloud Antivirus lightness and minor improvements suggested by all of you and by our strong Community at the Panda Cloud Antivirus Support Forum.

We are so excited with this new Panda Cloud Antivirus 2.1 that we are giving Panda Cloud Antivirus PRO Edition for half price during Christmas until January, 1!!

How to install Panda Cloud Antivirus 2.1

If you already have an existing version of Panda Cloud Antivirus you don’t need to do anything. The new Panda Cloud Antivirus 2.1 will automatically upgrade your existing version.

All existing Panda Cloud Antivirus 2.0 both in Free and Pro Editions will upgrade automatically and transparently to the new Panda Cloud Antivirus 2.1. This might take a few days as we are deploying the upgrade progressively.

If you don’t want to wait for the automatic and transparent upgrade you can head over to www.cloudantivirus.com right now and download the new 2.1 version and install it on top of your existing Panda Cloud Antivirus.

If you are reading this because you saw a “Panda Cloud Antivirus has automatically upgraded” message from your traybar, then you already have the latest 2.1 version.

Again our most sincere thanks to all the users worldwide who have helped us develop this great cloud antivirus. As always you can find us at the Support Forum in case you have any questions, problems or simply want to talk to us.

    What on earth is a zero-day vulnerability ? It may sound impressively clever, but I don’t think many of your users are actually going to understand it.
    Following the automatic update which you sent, you directed me to this on 27th Feb 2013. When you say that there is an offer during Christmas until January 1st, do you mean during Christmas 2012 until January 1st 2013 ? If so, how can we be sure that you keep the anti-virus programme up-to-date, when amending the offer above seems relatively simple ?
    However, Panda does seem to work very well — as far as one can tell !
