Being the first free cloud-based antivirus, we sometimes read people’s comments and posts about Panda Cloud Antivirus requiring an active Internet connection to be effective. While we’ve always said that this is not the case due to the way we’ve architectured the cloud-based protection, these comments are sometimes still posted by people who are not familiar with the product.
AV-Comparatives.org just released the results of their “Retrospective Test” which basically freezes AV products without allowing them to update their signatures nor connect to cloud-based scanning services, and tests them against new viruses.
While the concept of testing against Internet-enabled viruses without Internet connectivity is somewhat unrealistic, we are happy to announce that even without Internet connectivity Panda Cloud Antivirus achieved the highest rating “Advanced+” given by AV-Comparatives.org. Even without Internet connectivity Panda Cloud Antivirus provided better offline detection than non-cloud free products from Avira, AVG and Microsoft.
There is NO such test on AV-Comparatives.org website!!!
Congratulations Panda ! You are really the best free, light and powerful antivirus ! And even offline, you beat almost all the competitors ! Great ! 😉

There is a test but its name is not good. It is named March 2012 but in the text says that the test was done in July 2012.
Hát én csak gratulálni tudok! Nagy meglepetés! Kitűnően működik még az én gyenge gépemen is. Ajánlom mindenkinek..Ezen a világon .Az ilyen csóró szegény emberek min én is nem hogy vírusirtót de még egy 2 vagy 3 éves gépet sem tudok venni ! Mi lenne velünk ezek a kitűnő szakeberek nélkül.További jó munkát kívánok nekik! Meg hogy 2.0 ás legyen minél előbb frre.
Panda is the best antivirus. Your cloud service is also great. I always recommend it to my friends and relatives.

This was awarded in the 2012 test. In the 2013 test Panda dropped to 1 star, and since then they have not participated.
You are right, that post is from 2012, but since then we have obtained other highest certification awards. See some examples below:
Thank you very much!
