Panda Internet Security 2007 Receives the PC Plus Editor's Choice

The British magazine PC Plus has awarded their Editor's Choice and PC Plus Hotlist rosettes to Panda Internet Security 2007, the new Panda Software solution for professionals and home users. The magazine also gave the product their maximum score of five stars.

This review appears in PC Plus issue 249 December 2006, on release 24th October 2006.

The magazine confirms that Panda Internet Security 2007 has "a comprehensive range of security services that include not only protection against viruses and a personal firewall, but also antispam, antispyware, online fraud protection, parental controls and intrusion prevention facilities, all wrapped up in one neat and tidy interface".

The authors of the article were pleasantly surprised by the fact that Panda Internet Security 2007 was able to disinfect more than 100 files during scans prior to installation. The article also highlighted the ability of the firewall to configure itself when it detected the home wireless network set up for the test.

The magazine also drew attention to the protection offered by the combination of reactive and proactive technologies, allowing Panda Internet Security 2007 to deal with not just known malware, but also previously unknown threats: "Panda invokes a two-pronged defence against viruses, utilising the company's tried and tested TruPrevent Technology."

PC Plus also takes a positive view of the configuration options offered by the Panda Software solution: "There's a good level of customisation available in the package".
