Panda Security, The Cloud Security Company, has announced that its collaboration agreement with Facebook to protect the digital lives of users of the popular social networking site will extend its reach six months after its launch.

“We’re extremely happy with the results obtained from our collaboration with Facebook, which now extends to six different languages. This joint initiative against malware has been extremely well received by users. In fact, during the first six months of the promotion, users have carried out a total of 10,000 activations of our solution Panda Internet Security 2013,” explained Enrique Aguilera, VP Consumer Sales and Marketing at Panda Security.
About Panda Internet Security 2013
Panda Internet Security 2013 is specifically designed to protect users’ identity while using social networking sites and other Internet services. Its powerful URL filtering engine and safe browser module are particularly useful for users who want to preserve their privacy and security. Additionally, it can encrypt and password-protect private files and folders to prevent the theft of personal, banking and financial data or valuable multimedia content.
Panda Internet Security 2013 also includes Identity Protect, a module that provides anti-phishing protection, data leak prevention, and anti-dialer protection against unauthorized charged calls. Also, it delivers real-time protection against known and unknown threats by harnessing the knowledge and experience of millions of users through Panda’s unique cloud-based Collective Intelligence technology.
Every day, PandaLabs receives nearly 206,000 new files, 73,000 of which are new malware strains that Collective Intelligence automatically analyzes, classifies and remedies in 99.6 percent of cases. These technologies gather information on malware received from each computer to continuously improve protection levels for the worldwide Panda community. The 2013 product line leverages this huge knowledge base, offering users a more rapid response to the newest and most dangerous malware attacks.
Panda Internet Security 2013 includes a more modern, intuitive interface than ever before, and is compatible with Windows 8, Microsoft’s new operating system.
