Panda Security has announced the release of version 2.2 of Panda Cloud Antivirus which now offers new features to deliver the most advanced data protection. Users of the solution will now enjoy all the functions of this latest version, as the software is automatically updated for all those with version 2.1.1 and earlier editions.

Similarly, Panda Cloud Antivirus 2.2 includes a new area specifically set up for more advanced users, called Community Labs, where Internet users can access new features of the program for free during the pilot phase. The new features included in the Community Labs area are strongly focused towards the security of users' personal data, as well as safer browsing for children and the disinfection capabilities of the computers, due to Panda Cloud Cleaner technology. Data Shield, which enables Panda Cloud Antivirus to prevent malware from accessing users’ personal data. Should any new malware overcome all layers of protection and infiltrate a user’s computer, Data Shield will prevent the theft or encryption of personal data. Parental Control, to keep kids safe from inappropriate Web content. This feature lets users block access to a range of Web content, classified into 59 different categories. Parents can also get a quick view of children’s activity through a dashboard with filters by date, website or category.

This can boot the system from a USB or from a rescue option on the computer and remove any virus that blocks the system thanks to Panda Cloud Cleaner technology. Optimized protection: in short, Panda Cloud Antivirus 2.2 includes a series of improvements that will increase its detection capabilities, while bearing in mind the needs of Internet users.
