Now a days having a good anti-virus program is a necessity. Viruses, malwares and other malicious programs pose a threat to the security of millions of computers. However, not everyone can afford expensive anti-virus applications, especially students. Promotions, such as Kaspersky and NOD32 offer some help to these needy people.
Irrespective to paid or free solutions, if you don’t have a fast machine, these softwares can really slow down your computer by using too many system resources. However, there is one out of the box solution that is not only free but will also take less system resources making it easier to work on slower machines.
Cloud-Based Antivirus introduces new protection model with Thin-Client Protection and real time scanning from the cloud. It took Panda labs three year to develop Cloud based Anti-virus.
In layman terms this technology uses less system resources due to its thin-client agent and server architecture which processes and blocks malware more efficiently than locally installed signature-based products.
Currently the version is in its beta stages, however, you can still download for free once the final version hits the market. [Credit]
