Which AntiVirus is better?

Viruses are no longer the only threat to your system, so quality security suites need to provide comprehensive coverage. Comodo and Panda both offer the latest malware protection technology, along with a wide range of additional features that set the two programs apart. Comodo’s sandboxing technology adds an extra layer of protection by launching files and apps in a virtual environment. Any infections can be identified and quarantined quickly. The software also uses cloud-based whitelisting to speed up the process. If you do suspect a problem, the Application Control locks down your computer and only uses programs that are known to be safe. The Game Mode stops pop-up notifications during gameplay and media streaming. While Comodo is only available for Windows, the company does offer free tools for Mac and Linux users. Panda has an impressive 100% success rate at spotting malware, although it does have a frustrating issue with false positives. It includes anti-ransomware, a firewall, a VPN, Wifi Protection which alerts you about insecure networks, and external hardware scans that check USBs and other drives. The virtual keyboard lets you avoid keyloggers, and the parental controls are ideal if you have a young family. There are even physical-theft tools; the “Find My Device” features lets you remotely locate your machine and the software will take a photo from the front camera if three-failed log-in attempts occur.

Both providers offer top-quality antivirus at reasonable prices, and each has specific extras that are worthwhile. However, currently, Panda is rated slightly higher due to its extensive list of features and innovative security.
