Panda Titanium 2006 Antivirus + Antispyware is the definitive solution for those who want to use their computer without worrying about cybercrime (viruses, worms, Trojans, spyware, online fraud, WiFi intrusions) or complex product configuration tasks. The new Panda Software solution offers protection against both known viruses and malware including spyware and online fraud, thanks to its daily updates, and against unknown threats, thanks to the proactive protection provided by TruPrevent.

ICSA Labs analyzed TruPrevent Technologies. The results of this study were the following: ability to protect against a wide range of unknown malware; no false positives; and negligible impact on systems.

Panda Software has invested all its know-how of consumer IT security in these products. The 2006 products include both TruPrevent Technologies, whose capabilities have been certified by ICSA Labs, and the most advanced protection against spyware, thanks to the integration of a range of technologies. These technologies, which have now been further enhanced, were described in PC Magazine's review of Platinum 2005 as "one of the most successful security suites when it came to cleaning and detecting spyware". Given its track record and experience in this field, Panda Software has recently joined the Anti-Spyware Coalition, an international organization coordinating the fight against this threat and is also a member of the Anti-Phishing Working Group -APWG.

The very latest cybercrime threats - including phishing and online fraud - are also dealt with by the 2006 product range. Both Titanium and Platinum include detection of WiFi intrusions, an increasing threat to today's users, and one which could allow criminals to use the network fraudulently or steal confidential information. These solutions include new probabilistic and HTML analysis detection methods, as well as, in the case of Platinum, Web filtering techniques, improving efficiency and reducing false positives to a minimum.
