Panda Cloud Antivirus Inches Closer to Release with Second Beta

Paul Lilly

Panda Security's free Cloud Antivirus, released in beta form just a couple of months back, has apparently been well received with "millions" of downloads. Based on feedback from those who have participated, Panda this week released the second beta for what it refers to as the first free cloud-based antivirus thin client.

Several new features and fixes have been added to the newest beta, some of which include:

  • Undo option for the Recycle Bin to recover deleted detections for a period of 3 days in case of false positives
  • Synchronous real-time Cloud scan
  • A response control mechanism that prevents programs from executing before they can be scanned
  • Background and on-demand scans no longer run simultaneously, improving overall scan times

For a full list of fixes of changes, as well as download instructions, see here .

No word yet on when the final release of Version 1.0 will go live, however Panda did say it plans to release a third beta sometime around September.
