Panda Internet Security 2013 Review
27 November 2012
Excerpt: Besides the antivirus, it incorporates a two-way firewall, identity protection, anti-spam and parental controls. Additionally, it can install USB Vaccine, a tool that blocks infections propagating through autorun.inf on USB drives, and Safe Browser, which is a virtualized browser that allows you to conduct sensitive financial operations online.
Conclusion: With its colorful main window, Panda Internet Security 2013 definitely stands out. It includes a wide range of features beyond the basics that make up a suite. The problem is that when it comes to those basics, its performance is just average.
Pros: Good score for malware cleanup. Web-based protection blocks malware URLs. Firewall stealths all ports. Remote management. Safe Browser. USB vaccination. Private data protection. Local and online backup.
Cons: Simple firewall easily disabled by service attack. Poor antiphishing scores. Poor antispam scores. Local backup requires separate copy to CD/DVD. Limited parental control. Performance hit.
