Panda Global Protection 2015 is the latest version of Panda Security's amazing protection and security suite, developed for Windows users. Transform your computer into a fortress with this wonderful set of tools and features. The program is available to download as a trial version only. The full version is available from their official website. 

Protecting your Global Identity

As a computer user, one must be aware of the threats that we constantly face when browsing online (or offline). Any action we take leaves a trace. Whether it's accessing files, emailing, browsing the web, or shopping online, any time we enter our personal details they are at risk of being stolen or used for malicious purposes. Any time we open an email, we are giving an opportunity to malware, spyware and other programs to infect our PCs. Ensuring the safety of our PC means having the best antivirus program possible, one which offers total global protection for our files and our identities. Panda Global Protection 2015 does precisely that. 

The program is quick and easy to install, after which you'll be greeted by a highly compact interface, laid out as a series of 'apps' much like Windows 8. Panda Global Protection's scanning software is second to none, missing almost nothing and easily matching industry benchmarks for detection. The program will detect all kinds of threats including viruses, trojans, rootkits, malware, spyware and other threats to your data. These can be specified from the settings page. If any threats are detected, they are immediately quarantined or blocked. Your protection status is visible from the top of the screen, indicating that there are no immediate threats to your computer.

Offline Protection

Panda Global Protection guarantees the safety of your files while offline. A two-way firewall will scan all incoming and outgoing files for potential threats and will detect them flawlessly. When you are managing and organizing your files, a 'File Encryption' mode will allow you to prevent access to your files and a 'File Shredder' can be used to completely remove them from your hard drive's memory. This is very handy, based on the premise that traces of a file will still remain in ordinary circumstances. A 'Process Monitor' will not only monitor all ongoing processes on your device, but ensure optimal performance through effective management of them. PC Tuneup is similar, performing a disk clean-up process and removing obsolete or unnecessary files. Should anything befall your machine, a kind of safe mode, the Rescue Kit, is available which will allow you to protect your PC while you determine the issue and repair it from an isolated interface.

One important feature emerging in the antivirus community is cloud connectivity. When Global Protection updates or confirms the nature of a particular file, it will do so in real time using its dedicated cloud server. This means that even if your current configuration does not detect a new kind of threat, the cloud more than likely will and send back a flag or a warning. Regular updates will also ensure that your virus classification stays up to date and that you will neve miss anything during a scan. 

Protecting your Online Identity

In addition to protecting all of your files while offline, Panda Global Protection 2015 guarantees your privacy and security while browsing. The 'Safe Browsing' mode will allow Antivirus Pro to scan websites before being allowed entry to prevent unwanted downloads, block URLs, malware, phishing software and more. The program will remember all of these in the future. When connecting to the internet, a 'Wi-Fi Monitor' will prevent anyone else from hijacking your connection or using it to install anything harmful. If your children are using the internet, you can also set up 'Parental Control' features to block and restrict access to particular websites.

If you are involved in business or shop online regularly, your passwords and financial information will constantly be at risk of theft by keyloggers. With the 'Virtual Keyboard', you won't have to worry, since it will create an external interface through which you can enter your details, meaning no record of your keystrokes remain. A 'Password Manager' can also be used to periodically forget all of your online passwords so that none can be recorded by hackers. 

One of the most important features of this software is that it will support all of your connected devices. As long as you are licensed under the same account, the same level of security and the same security settings will be available on all of your compatible devices, whether tablet, iPhone, Android, etc. with Mac Protection and Mobile Protection features. While more basic versions of Panda software will not make this available, Global Protection has far more to offer. 

The Verdict

Its scanner is fantastic and with a simple interface, its many settings are easy to find, navigate and configure.
