Antivirus software provider Panda Security yesterday launched a new version of its anti-malware solution. Panda Global Protection 2015 is available as a beta release and features numerous upgrades including a new interface, WiFi protection and a Data Shield module.

The solution's features include:

  • Data Shield module
  • New interface
  • New technological platform that harnesses the power of Panda Security's cloud
  • New Tuneup module
  • Parental controls
  • Wi-Fi protection

"This year's version has been developed from scratch. Everything is new, and we can safely say that Panda Global Protection 2015 is lighter, more secure and more complete than ever before. In a word, it is clearly better. This is our opinion, and we expect our beta testers to confirm it," Panda Security Retail Product Marketing Manager Hervé Lambert said in a prepared statement.

Panda Security also announced a new competition with exclusive prizes to reward its beta testers.

"Beta versions help us ensure our products include every feature demanded by our user community and everything works as requested. Users' opinions are key to making our products even better, so we listen to and interact with them to make sure our solutions are perfectly suited to their needs," Lambert said.
