Panda Antivirus Pro 2016 Antivirus is a security program which provides basic protection for a reasonable price without affecting system performance. We tested running with all heavy multimedia files for a week but there is no startup delay issue or system slowdown issue because it is a very light application. Once you open the dashboard you will find the scan option and one thing about Panda Dashboard it is completely customizable so there is no need to comment position of tool icons and UI settings.
When you click on the scan button a popup opens with different scan options click on ‘Full scan’ if you want to scan your whole PC else click on ‘custom scan’ to scan a particular folder or drive and for critical areas click on ‘Critical areas’. Scanning speed is average and you can’t expect speed as Kaspersky or other security software. USB and external storage devices scanning are also supported while Wi-Fi Monitoring and firewall comes with default in all version of Panda Antivirus.
Detection rate is good but unfortunately, Panda doesn’t provide protection from Spyware and other trojans in PRO version. we created a basic C++ executable virus program which was successfully detected by Panda Antivirus PRO. Panda Antivirus PRO offers basic protection, for advanced protection you should try Panda Internet security whereas the complete feature is included in Gold Edition which includes PC Tuning feature to keep your system fast like System Mechanic Professional. The license for PRO version works for Windows, Android and IOS Phone.
Panda Antivirus PRO 2016 is a basic Antivirus Software like Avast and Avira but the problem is with the features offered compared to the other security programs like Bitdefender, Norton, and Avast. The other issue is there is no Live Chat feature for PRO version but it is available for Gold Edition, some security programs don’t have live chat feature, having that but providing only for top packages is not a good idea.
Overall Panda Antivirus Offers a comprehensive protection including protection to your phones without any extra charge. The overall detection rate is good and we recommend you try this product before use. We rate Panda Antivirus PRO 4/5. For Advanced Protection from all the threats, we recommend you to install Bitdefender Total security.
