Panda Overall Rating
When looking for the perfect antivirus software, one of the most important considerations should be its performance, that is, how well that device performs when some malware or threat is detected. Likewise, the ability of the software to protect against real-world threats is also very important. Panda Antivirus performed well when tested by AV Comparatives, one of the leading antivirus software testing vendors. The impact of running Panda Antivirus on the device performance was minimal with the only noticeable limitation being when launching applications for the first time. Panda Antivirus was awarded the full 3-Stars by AV Comparatives for its performance.

- Performance 97.7% 97.7%
Overall, Panda secured a good rating in its protection capabilities compared to other antivirus software in various tests. The overall protection rate for the software was 99.97% which is one of the highest in the industry. It was marginally lacking in the occurrence of false positives where it produced slightly more than other antivirus software in its category.
