Very poor result for Panda, untill now best result by Bitdefender free.
I wonder how free Forticlient will do in this test.
Their URL blocker is so ineffective that when I tried it recently, I thought there is a bug and it just doesn't work at all, until it finally kicked in on some phishing links. It also has a very dated warning, that hasn't changed at all since the age of Panda Cloud Antivirus. Sometimes, when you open a phishing link, it displays a notification that threat has been disinfected, which is obviously not too correct. I also found out the whole architecture is still 32-bit.

Panda Free don't any network protection so this is expected result and it's mostly dependent on the cloud. I don't consider it as a good free AV but I wonder how it achieves this types of results in AV-Comparatives?!

It also has the highest fp number, so it looks like it employees some form of aggressive heuristics and/or cloud lookup. Their blog no longer mentions what’s new in their products so it’s hard to know what improvements they’ve made. They definitely haven’t introduced a 64-bit architecture which may be the reason why their software is always so problematic. Their forums are a joke and look archaic... I don’t expect any knowledge and competence there on how Panda works.

| also have been wondering about these results, considering that the detection rates have gone down and the loss of it`s web filter ??

Regards Eck :)
I tested the most premium version for a day and it did well (standard antivirus), however this is a very short period to jump to any conclusions. Web blocker was a joke and so was everything else. I definitely won't be paying for it. I also don't get why free version doesn't have a web filter, considering all other free packages do include that.

Identity protection for online security while browsing, shopping and banking is included in ADVANCED or above version.
Yes, I tested Premium, the one with the unlimited VPN and premium support. Still same result.
Panda has been a partner with Cyren for ages and Cyren greatly improves their detection of malware by feeding them with threat intelligence. Their web filter relies entirely on Cyren's database, which uses legacy F-Prot technologies whilst crawling the web to discover malware. That's why Panda's url blocker isn't that great.

Ages ago i was only infected once and it was with Panda cloud ! it did say there's a virus but it wasn't able to delete it ... since then i never used it again. I used something else to delete the virus (cant remember which one)

There is no extra detail report, but they mention default configuration for consumers, so I image Edge + smartscreen.
I like MRG tests, the disable smartscreen except for WD, but when they did WD test without it, it performed horribly.
