Panda Cloud Anyone?

Hello, all wise ones
Have any of you tried Panda Cloud Antivirus? I am trying it out now and think I have gained a little speed back by using less resources. Just wondered if anyone has had any good or bad results with this. Thanks,
John

Used it a long time ago so not much info. Current favorites include MSE.

Think you are confused, you must have tried Panda AV in the past. The cloud version is new...so I don't think you used it a long time ago.

I also like MSE. What I like about both of these is ease of use. Panda doesn't have a scheduler though. If real time catches things as they come in, you would think that there is no need to ever scan. I know, I know.... I can dream

From what I have seen of Panda I would not use it. The cloud version I havent tried but "cloud" AV dosent really seem like a good idea.

One can define "long time ago" as short as a few months.

Panda Cloud AV got good marks in the latest review by pcmag.com.

Panda Cloud Antivirus - Free Edition 1.0 - At A Glance - Reviews by PC Magazine

One criticism some have leveled at it is you need to be connected to the internet for it to be effective since it relies on the cloud for sigs, etc. This is being addressed in an upcoming version (currently in beta test) that will include an offline (local) cache of definitions. I think it's a good choice amongst the free products, but I would keep MBAM and SuperAntiSpyware handy no matter what AV I used.

Cloud Antivirus eliminates known malware immediately on detection. Files that aren't known malware but seem to be malicious get sent to the cloud for analysis. Until the results come back, they're not allowed to launch. According to Panda Senior Research Advisor Pedro Bustamante, the company receives about 55,000 such files per day. Their automated systems can handle 99 percent of them; human researchers analyze the rest. As for the cloud database itself, it's measured in terabyte—size is no problem when you don't have to fit it on personal computers.
Sounds good, but I think it's still a work in progress

I just checked out PC mags Reviews and those guys at PC mag have absolutly no idea what they are doing.
Some of those reviews havent been updated in 6 years. They are reviewing what pays the best. The more money the higher the rateing. I mean reallly Norton internet security 2008 is #4 on the list of best products???

PC Mag...0 credability!

Today i came across the new Panda Cloud Antivirus from Panda Lab. It supports Windows 7 (both 32 and 64 bit). The main window. Very neat and simple. Nothing's there in the settings tab. May be because its still in beta phase.
