    Default Article: Cloud Antivirus runs smooth but slow

    Earlier Wednesday, Panda Security introduced Cloud Antivirus beta, the first full-featured cloud-based antivirus program. It does two things that make it competitive and unique compared with its competitors that are tied to your desktop: it prioritizes threats based on type, and it attempts to lighten the load that security programs place on your system resources by moving definition files to a community-based cloud.




    The big concern about a cloud-based antivirus is performance, and Cloud Antivirus handled itself decently enough--although it's not a record-setter. On a ThinkPad T42 with a 1.7 GHz Pentium M chip, 1.5 GB RAM, and running Windows XP SP2, Cloud Antivirus used about 23 MB of RAM when idle.



    When running a scan, the scan client ate around 40 MB, but the main client jumped to around 32 MB. The scan also took a long time, with only 45 percent of the computer scanned in more than 30 minutes. Pausing the scan client dropped the usage rate from 40 MB to 2 MB.

    Thanks roraniel,
    I tested Panda Cloud Antivirus, it was able to detect many malware (not all the samples), but hanged during scanning many times, and scanning is really too slow. It didn't interfere apparently with Avira AntiVir Premium 9.

    However this is the relply of PREVX to Panda Cloud Antivirus beta

    It's a beta, I think we have to wait for a final judgment anyway

    good point, I'd like to know the same.
    I'll ask to some friends who haven't ADSL if they can test it
