Panda Internet Security 17
PANDA INTERNET SECURITY 17 is a capable security suite with protection for Windows, Android, iOS and Mac.
The Windows module offers a good range of features: accurate anti-virus, browser protection (via an optional toolbar), a firewall and Wi-Fi protection to detect and block intruders. The Data Shield prevents sensitive information falling into the wrong hands, parental controls keep your kids safe online, and there’s a virtual keyboard to bypass keyloggers.
Mac and iOS protection is more about the basics, with anti-virus and an iPhone location service, while the Android tools take this a little further: anti-virus, device optimisation, a location service, and the option to lock or wipe your device remotely.
All of this is easy enough to set up, though look out for the option to install a browser toolbar – it will change your home and search pages unless you clear some tickboxes.
After that, the program proves as reliable and accurate as ever. This latest edition brings new checks for Wi-Fi vulnerabilities, a new engine, and smarter Collective Intelligence, offering greater protection with less impact on performance.
