Panda launches new Vista-compatible antivirus, firewall April 24, 2007

Panda Software has launched a new Vista-compatible version of Panda Antivirus+Firewall 2007.  This version includes a new system for blocking malicious URLs and a specially-designed tool for stopping malware that uses rootkit techniques to hide.

Panda Antivirus+Firewall 2007 customers can download the new version for free from http://www.pandasoftware.com/products/Antivirusfirewall2007 .

Windows Vista compatibility is one of the key features in this version, and Panda Antivirus+Firewall 2007 is also compatible with Windows XP 64 bits, Tablet PC and Media Center.

“Windows Vista has been presented as one of the safest operating systems. Nevertheless, several vulnerabilities have been found that can be exploited to infect PCs running this operating system. It is therefore advisable to have additional protection that completes and increases Vista security,” explains Jaime Herrero-Velarde, director of Consumer Marketing at Panda Software.

“One of the features that can be improved is the firewall. Vista includes a built-in firewall,  but it doesn’t have all the functions that complete protection requires. Panda Antivirus+Firewall 2007 includes intrusion prevention against WiFi networks, malware detection, default scanning of inbound and outbound traffic and a complete Intrusion Detection System,” says Herrero-Velarde.

Panda Antivirus+Firewall 2007 incorporates a system for blocking malicious URLs. This tool prevents users accessing web pages designed to carry out phishing attacks or those containing spyware, making the task of combating threats more effective.

The new solution from Panda Software also features specially-designed technology to protect from rootkit-using-malware.  Rootkits are programs used for concealing the processes of malicious codes, making it more difficult to detect. To improve protection against these tools, Panda Antivirus + Firewall 2007 detects files associated with hidden processes and those infected with rootkits and marks them as malware to delete them.

Panda Antivirus + Firewall 2007 provides maximum, automatic and permanent protection against all types of malware and hackers. It doubles the security of PCs with TruPrevent Technologies, protecting against unknown viruses and intruders.

Panda Antivirus + Firewall 2007 also offers additional protection against numerous other types of threats: it includes firewall technologies to defend against hacker attacks, even in WiFi networks, and protection against phishing and spyware by blocking malicious URLs. It also offers Tech Support 24h-365d, 24h-SOS virus and daily updates.
