Panda Software Is Now Panda Security

Panda Software is now Panda Security. This is more than a change of name. It is a statement of the new direction of Panda internationally. Panda Security is more than a software company. It is a company committed to solutions for consumers and businesses that keep their computers free from any threats to their security, offering global protection, at home and at work.

"This is an important step for us, as it is more than just a brand change. We are working to adapt the entire company to new market demands. The aim is no less than to offer users the best products and services to keep their IT systems truly free from all types of malware", said Jorge Dinares, CEO of Panda Security.

In 2006, PandaLabs detected more malware than in the previous 15 years combined. At the same time, Internet crooks are no longer motivated by notoriety but instead are looking to steal identities, banking information, company secrets and cash.

Panda's introduction of a new security model is central to taking on the current volume and trend of cyber crime. Just as Panda pioneered preventive technologies with TruPrevent, it is now tackling the new malware situation with a new generation of security solutions characterized by ultra-high detection capacity.

One of the pivotal steps taken by PandaLabs to achieve ultra-high detection capacity has been to automate processes so that it can deal with much more new malware.

Moreover, the Investindustrial and Gala Capital investment funds have recently entered Panda's share capital with the aim of accelerating the development of new technologies as well as driving a major international expansion project, consolidating the leading position of Panda in the IT security market.
