As cyber threats continue to develop, antivirus software needs to adapt. Panda and Malwarebytes are both known for their near-perfect malware detection rates. However, aside from their use of signature-scanning and behavior-monitoring, the two software packages use different tactics to ensure comprehensive security.
Malwarebytes works with its customers to ensure high-quality protection. They include sophisticated scheduling options, such as custom application scans alongside their full-system checks. Users get a report history to look at previous problems. It also runs a “Bug Bounty” initiative which enters users in a drawing for cash prizes for reporting problems. The software includes protocols for numerous threats, including rootkit scanning and web protection, without the need for additional browser extensions. The pop-up guidance about different types of threats and integrated support tool can help users of any technical level.
Panda has an impressive malware detection rate of 100%, but it’s worth noting it has problems with frustrating false positives. Despite this, Panda offers protection from a wide range of cybersecurity issues, includes anti-ransomware security, WiFi protection that sends alerts regarding insecure networks, a firewall, free VPN, parental controls, and a keyboard to avoid keyloggers. The Data Shield protects specific file extensions, and there even are features to protect users in case of physical theft. The \”Find My Device\” option remotely locates your lost machine, and it will take a photo from the front camera if three failed login attempts occur.
