Cloud Antivirus Panda became the first free antivirus, which receives ICSA Labs certification.
To receive ICSA Labs anti-virus certification, the products must comply with criteria like the capability to detect, identify and prevent self-replicating malwares. At the same time, the product must not have false positives during tests.
This is the first time pure cloud-based antivirus has met all criteria for cleaning the malware on PCs and servers including the viruses from the infected files and sectors without affecting data.
According to Wikipedia, Panda Cloud Antivirus is a free version of Panda’s security software and is cloud-based, i.e. the scanning of the files is handled on a remote server instead of on a user’s machine. As a result of this, the results are less bloated as seen by the end-user.
