Panda Security Unveils Beta Release of Free 'Cloud Antivirus'

The price of computer security continues its slide toward free, at least for basic protection. Following in the footsteps of open source security vendors, as well as traditional software vendors such as AVG Technologies CZ s.r.o. , Microsoft Corp., and Symantec Corp., Panda Security on Wednesday unveiled a beta release of free security software called Panda Cloud Antivirus.

 

The appearance of the word "cloud" in the product title is partly a reflection of the term's trendiness: Throughout the computer industry, technical references to servers and networks are being dropped in favor of "the cloud."
