Panda launches mini version of NanoScan July 1, 2007

Posted by grhomeboy in Internet Safety.

Panda Software has launched the mini, customizable version of NanoScan, the new instant virus scanner from Panda Software to detect active malware on a PC in less than one minute. NanoScan is available at > http://www.infectedornot.com

With this launch, Panda Software is contributing to the rapidly expanding Web 2.0 user community. Portals such as iGoogle, Windows Live, NetVibes or Protopage, already have custom versions of NanoScan, where visitors can benefit from the exceptional speed and detection capacity of NanoScan.

Since NanoScan detects all the malware that could be running on the system (viruses, worms, trojans, spyware, etc.), it provides a highly useful ‘second opinion’ that complements any antivirus installed on a system.

Currently, NanoScan detects more than 1 mln samples of known malware and is continually updated against new threats, with almost 2,500 new samples a day. It also detects unknown malware thanks to the Genetic Heuristic Technology.

NanoScan uses a new Collective Intelligence approach. This approach includes automated processing of large quantities of information about programs and files, in a new infrastructure managed by PandaLabs, and real-time communication with users’ computers. This way, the malware scan and detection is performed on Panda Software’s servers, not on the system itself. Thanks to this new approach, NanoScan is capable of detecting even malware samples that slipped past other antivirus solutions, and are active carrying out malicious actions on the computer.
