It is a product we use internally, as well as recommend to clients. It is easy to use, easy to implement, cost appropriate, and effective. A great product that none of our clients have been disappointed with, nor have we internally. A great product that requires little interaction and just works.
  • Easy to use, requires little interaction.
  • Resource conservative.
  • Cost could be a little better.
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.

Panda Security is used by the workgroup since all the computers are instantiated generically, and it is an excellent tool that allows protecting all the computers in different layers, besides that it consumes a low amount of resources, it allows us to establish security inside of the private network, and public networks, your VPN is very useful to surf through the internet safely, in addition to constantly scanning all the computers and devices that connect to each computer.
  • 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.
  • The connection through the VPN sometimes becomes very slow.
  • They need to improve customer support, it can be a bit complicated to get in touch with them there is not live assistance.
This antivirus is excellent for workplaces where a broad level of security is needed, covering different levels in both internal and public networks, as well as each computer, keeping the computer safe from most viruses, malware, keylogger, etc. However, for very demanding security, their detection levels may not be adequate because in some cases it may fail if there is no direct connection to the Internet, which allows the database to be updated.

Panda Security for Desktops is a highly versatile system that can handle many security problems faced by everyday users. With an organization that I worked with, it was found to be an economic and strong security system capable of being implemented across a number of computers at remote locations. It's ease of use and installation meant that the program could be used with a minimal cost beyond its license purchase.
  • Panda Security is really good at security scans for viruses.
  • The application is very user-friendly
  • Panda Security is easy to learn and to train users on.
  • 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 is really well suited for small to medium sized organizations with limited IT support. It's a product that is geared towards average users with limited knowledge of security products. However, this can also mean that the product is not as suitable for complex networks or advanced security coverage needs. Some companies may find that the product may lack certain features found on more robust packages.

Panda Security is used to provide protection to our desktops as we work with large amounts of data and business information every day. Implementing this great software in our company has been extremely useful because it keeps the equipment out of harm's way. This includes protection from identity theft, malicious sites, and contaminated files, among others.
  • It is available for all computers, from laptops, tablets, and even mobile devices.
  • It provides protection in real time to stop or avoid any virus, malware, or even hackers; it will detect them immediately.
  • Provides protection against cyber attacks and any other new threat.
  • Support team is extremely effective.
  • It is ideal for the business level as for the protection of the home.
  • It is lightweight and easy to download, it only takes a few minutes to finalize your download.
  • I would like it to provide more variety of plans so that the user has more flexibility when choosing the features according to their needs.
  • The configuration should be a bit simpler so that in order to be in shape, any person can have access to it regardless of whether or not they has knowledge about it.
  • Their annual prices are somewhat high, so it can be a software that is not very easy to obtain or maybe not for a long time of use due to its high costs.
Panda Security is very suitable for the protection of both home and business equipment since it acts in real time, allowing it to act in the fastest way in any scenario in which any malicious file, virus, malware, or cyber attack is detected. This way, the business information, the data of the clients, and the employees themselves will not be affected.

Panda security - I used it for a year on my personal laptop, together with Malwarebytes Anti-Malware, as an extra tool to verify possible system infections and clean the different infected files.

I started using it after having some problems of instability of my operating system (win8) and strange windows type MS-D.O.S. At that time I looked in several forums and they said that one of the best ways to corroborate some infections and be able to eliminate them was to use a Panda antivirus in safe windows mode.

So every time I have had problems I have used it that way and so far it has worked perfectly, allowing me to eliminate trojans and viruses that have infected my system.
  • Very easy to configure. Even if you prefer to use it with the default settings and it works quite well
  • It allows safe navigation system. With this system, you avoid the interception of sensitive data such as bank keys, account numbers, and others.
  • Allows keeping your operating system safe easy, since it not only allows the detection of viruses but also malware and rootkits.
  • I really do not understand why the antivirus in general, not only Panda, use an anti-spam system if the emails usually bring it already incorporated and it works very well.
  • The system of automatic updating is sometimes deficient, for which I recommend that when you use it to analyze the system updates Panda manually installs before starting the scan.
Panda Security is a good antivirus, and it is very useful when you have to disinfect an operating system, and this does it really well. It is also a good antivirus for daily use if you have a "normal" navigation behavior, that is; you watch YouTube, check FB, read some newspapers, see Netflix, and always browse on secure pages with little risk. But if you are a user who likes to download files by torrent, download music or movies by direct download servers, browse thousands of forums and things of that type, I do not recommend Panda ... It will certainly work and will avoid much of the risks, but at some point, it will not be enough and your laptop will be vulnerable to being infected by malicious files.

We have Panda installed on all desktop and server devices in our office. We have used it for over 3 years and we have had a good experience with it. The cloud interface is easy to navigate and setting up the templates for our various servers, desktops and mobile devices was also simple.
  • Cloud updates
  • Easy management
  • Price is reasonable
  • Reports are a little hard to customise
  • Software updates do sometimes cause PC lock-ups on reboot
Our environment has remote offices and remote users and it's fantastic to have a cloud management console to keep track of all these devices and updates.
