    Yes, if you're using an outdated offline system.

    Not protection, but detection.

    Really? Doesn't reactive and proactive mean protection?

    It's even less worthwhile then. Only good thing is the amount of products.

    @Noob
    The chart shows products with detection figures without False Positives.

    I didn't even see panda in the list.. I would like to get clarified about one thing.. The rate must be higher or smaller for better protection ?

    as has been stated a lot of times by users and by pbust - panda isn't included because RAP tests won't allow the use of cloud databases.

    What I dont understand is: why Panda participates in "offline on-demand proactive tests" like the performed by AV-C, but no in VB tests.

    who knows. i don't personally put much stock in VB's testing, so it doesn't bother me at all when vendors don't participate there. maybe they don't like the methodology or they'd rather just stick to av-c.

    Probably financial reasons?
    Or probably because they feel AV-C is a better option to use for marketing?
    Who knows :D
