    Panda Cloud Antivirus - PRO Edition is the first antivirus to use this innovative protection model based on two key pillars:
    Automated, real-time file detection and classification from the cloud.
    An ultra-thin client.



    Is not this an obvious lie? Prevx was there already years ago with the same technique? I get mad when I read Panda's claiming to be the first to use this 'innovative' technology (which has already been invented years ago).

    But we all know who was first they can make all the claims they want even if it's not true! :blink: IMHO

    Don't start a feud here as they are both Anti-Malware and the Topic is Panda claiming to be first and we know that is not true!

    But still... in Sweden a company claiming to be something they aren't would be sued.

    why do you come into this thread to just start a flame war. Maybe I should do the same over in the Prevx forums. I mean it is just childish. He started this thread on examining where the proof in this statement is and that is all.:cautious:

    The point by this thread was to find out whether the Panda crew are just a bunch of liars or if they've come up with something Prevx doesn't already have since many years.

    It's nothing more than marketing speak. Claims are made by software vendors of similar product groups the world over in the hope users will buy their product. Come to think of it, the same thing happens in other spheres too. If anyone has a quibble over marketing practices, they should contact the relevant marketing department of the company concerned.

    Well, its pretty obvious panda are just plain lying here, pure marketing but I agree it shouldn't be allowed.

    Prevx have had these technologys for over 4 years so in my eyes they have a lot more technologys and are more experienced and effeciant at at, so I don't understand the lies.

    Isn't Prevx more than an antivirus and correct me if wrong but it never positioned itself as an antivirus (like other known antivirus software)?

    Hey, fanboy, stop doing this. :p

    Nah, to be serious, Panda making statements like these just make me mad as hell. I do think it's a kick-ass product they've come up with, but it's not innovative and brand new as they claim it is.

    Yeah, only thing missing in Prevx at the moment is a working behavior engine against rouge AVs/antimalware (I know there is one, but it's rather weak).

    It will come maybe for v3 but if not v4 for sure as this type of malware is out of control with a $500 million to $1 Billion US dollars a year business and to stop them would put Prevx in a very Good position! http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rogue_security_software
