Which AntiVirus is better?
Aviva Zacks Writer
Both Avast and Panda have received impressive ratings in our independent tests, including near-perfect scores when it came to detecting known and zero-day malware. Panda did have a problem with false positives leading to safe files being marked and quarantined. Despite this slight drawback, the antivirus provider offers a full range of cyber protection thanks to their new and improved ‘Dome’ packages. Dome users enjoy a personal firewall and parental controls option. You can also choose to protect certain files, keeping them safe from ransomware attacks. Plus, you get a virtual keyboard which allows you to bypass keyloggers and keep your passwords safe. Panda also protects against physical theft with its remote location feature that lets you find your device from anywhere. It will even take a picture of the thief if three failed login attempts occur. Both providers also offer WiFi protection, which will keep you safe on any network, but Avast includes some beneficial extras. The webcam shield stops hackers from accessing your video stream, and the password vault allows you to store all your logins with one click. It also uses a sandboxing technique, which launches suspicious programs in a secure virtual environment to check for malware before they can harm your system. It is worth noting that Panda is more expensive than Avast, who offers a free option. However, Panda provides significantly more customer service options, which can be helpful to new users. Alongside the standard online documentation, email, live chat, and phone support, they also have an active social media presence and offer Panda forums for peer-to-peer advice.

Panda and Avast are both high-quality, so the deciding factors are the additional features and price. Panda offers a diverse range of cybersecurity tools to keep you safe but it costs more. Avast still provides all the essential security elements plus a few extras and can be installed at prices for any budget.
