Which AntiVirus is better?

Panda security has had a recent update and it’s now very similar to Norton. Both aim to be comprehensive security suites rather than standalone antiviruses. However, the actual features included vary notably. Each title protects from the full range of malware—including ransomware and trojans—but Panda also offers advanced WiFi protection and a VPN. These features allow you to secure your internet connection, no matter where you are. The new Panda Dome package also comes with anti-theft technology, which takes a picture from the front camera if three unsuccessful login attempts occur. On the other hand, Norton places its focus on providing comprehensive protection, employing both signature and behavioral-based detection. It also automatically backs up 25GB of your most important files to keep them safe if an attack occurs. Due to its commitment to security, Norton offers a 100% money-back guarantee. In independent tests, Panda received a near-perfect score but end up with a larger number of false positives than most providers.

If you regularly connect via different WiFi hotspots, Panda’s VPN will keep you safe over unknown connection points. However, if you use your security suite mainly at home or work, Norton offers the best range of anti-malware protocols to keep you safe from infection.

You can still go with Panda or pick from The Best Antivirus Programs for 2019
