New Panda Cloud Antivirus 2.2: The Community Version

Panda Cloud Antivirus 2.2 version
We are happy to announce the availability of Panda Cloud Antivirus version 2.2 in Panda Cloud Antivirus website!

If you are reading this post after seeing a “Panda Cloud Antivirus has upgraded automatically!” message on your Desktop traybar, then you already have the latest version installed and running, and you don’t have to do anything else. If your version of Panda Cloud Antivirus hasn’t upgraded yet to version 2.1.1, don’t worry. As we are releasing the automatic, transparent upgrade little by little, your copy of Panda Cloud Antivirus will upgrade itself automatically in a few days.

This version is, more than ever, focused on our Community, as it includes the features that you are demanding through Panda Cloud Antivirus Community Portal, and a new area designed especially for our most advanced users!

Panda Cloud Antivirus 2.2 includes a new Community Labs Area. We will make available to our millions of community users many new features, FREE of charge while they are in experimental stage. Please, have a look and let us know all your suggestions. Just turn around the product console and start experiencing it!

New features included in this Community Labs Area in Panda Cloud Antivirus 2.2 version are:

  • Data Shield: This new Protection prevents malware from accessing your personal data. In case a new malware can surpass all protection layers and infiltrate into your PC, Data Shield will avoid any theft or encryption of the important thing: your personal data. We are so sure about the importance of this protection, that we are releasing it enabled by default.
  • Parental Control: Keep an eye on the web sites your kids are visiting and protect them from inappropriate content by blocking access to any of 59 different categories.  Have a quick view of your children’s activity in a dashboard filtered by date, website or category.
  • Rescue Boot. This new feature is extremely useful in case of emergency situations caused by malware infections. Once created you will be able to boot from a USB or from a rescue option in your PC and remove any virus that locks your system thanks to Panda Cloud Cleaner technology.

Additionally, this new version integrates two of the most demanded features by the Community:

  • Access Control. Access to Panda Cloud Antivirus settings can be protected by a password from unauthorized people.
  • Safe Mode: Users will be able to install Panda Cloud Antivirus 2.2 and scan their PC against malware threats in Safe Mode.

And, as we continuously do in every version, we have improved Panda Cloud Antivirus protection capabilities. This time, we have focused these improvements in our behavioral technologies, in our successful anti-exploit protection and in Panda Cloud Antivirus technologies against Potencially Unwanted Programs. Performance optimizations and bug fixes complete this version.

Remember that if you have any problems with Panda Cloud Antivirus, you can always ask for help at our Technical Support Forum.

Enjoy it and let us know your feedback!

    Yes, when can I expect the auto-update? If it went live on the day this blog entry was written, then it’s already been 6 days.

    Parental Controls? Useless. No kids. Bulk added with no use for them
    Data Shield? Now disabled. It asked me about EVERYTHING constantly even when I authorized it. Bulk Added
    Boot rescue? Got one already. Bulk added.

    Password? FINALLY. Needed that.

    So you added a LOT Of bulk with little use

    The main reason I leave a virus scan is because it stops being a virus scan and tries to be a LOT of other stuff bulking up the software and eating up RAM and space. I’ll be shopping for a new one now. You were great.

    The “Add Applications” feature in the Data Protection section does NOT allow the addition of Google Drive googledrivesync.exe as an allowed option. After selecting it the OK button does not activate, preventing the inclusion of al allowed app.
    It remains a good idea. Please provide info on encryption used, key management as well as impact of syncronised files between PC’s with a tool like Google Drive or Mozy.

    Sorry, but I’m having lots of problems with the Data Shield. It did not allow me to open Word documents from Word! Lots and lots of pop ups coming about software that is part of the operating system also. I can work my way out in Panda settings, but most people will just give up and install something else, it’s a mistake activate something so broad by default, please reconsider this decision.

    Sorprendente esta versión de Panda Cloud, en un AMD Athlon XP 2200 el consumo de CPU no se nota y en memoria RAM veo que solo ocupa 20MB.

    Buen trabajo, felicidades.

    Version 2.2.0

    I hope Panda don’t go in future the same way as Avast! I’ve made a break with Avast, because the hundreds of unnecessary things and thousands of options and settings.
