Its middle of the road and should suit most applications well

Panda Security for Desktops

Panda is easy to use and doesn't take a ton of system resources, and is easy to implement. It is effective when tested or compared to other products. It doesn't burden the user with excessive notifications. Simple as it should be. Clients have been happy with its performance and haven't had reports of performance issues. This is a must as a system that cripples the machine is of significantly less value

Pros

ControlNow (Discontinued)

  • An instant scan of file level downloads so that introduction of a variant file is limited before the scan engine clears it.
  • Dashboard use of the agents available allows for near real-time review and action without directed access to the station.
John Stewart | TrustRadius Reviewer

Panda Security for Desktops

  • Constant scanning of the entire computer.
  • Does not affect the performance of the device.
  • A lot of features to protect the computers in different layers.
  • A control panel where you can manage all the features in a simple way.
  • High level of effectiveness when detecting threats, attacks, malware, etc.

Cons

ControlNow (Discontinued)

  • Dashboard refresh when you have over 100 end agents can be lagging at times
  • The agent install process has potential to hang without alert or warning unless your paying attention through the complete install
  • The silent install process can be problematic when dealing with large-scale networks with varied OS models
John Stewart | TrustRadius Reviewer

Panda Security for Desktops

  • Panda Security is not the best at some types of malware scans but that can be an issue with other similar products as well.
  • The configuration and setup functions could be more detailed and expanded for advanced users.
  • Updates can sometimes be infrequent.

Panda Security for Desktops 10.0
Based on 2 answers
I gave it a 10 because I compare it to air conditioning. I need it to work every day, 24/7. I need it to be reliable and not something that requires a ton of interaction from staff to make sure it works every day. In addition, I should be able to run other things at my house when the AC is on. Panda fits that description.

ControlNow more nimble and less impactful on the local PC
John Stewart | TrustRadius Reviewer

Panda Security for Desktops

Over the years we have tried different software to provide protection but we have not managed to obtain the best results because their features have not been updated or do not fully support against very advanced attacks. One example is Avira, which is limited in that it is practically only useful for Windows, while Panda is usually available for different devices as well as is more prepared for any type of attack that we can cross today.

Return on Investment

  • At current we are on build up and the ROI isnt a factor
John Stewart | TrustRadius Reviewer

Panda Security for Desktops

  • It has helped me on multiple occasions to eliminate infections from my PC. I have avoided having to reinstall the operating system or format my system and lose some important files.
