Panda Security has released an update to their cloud based antivirus program Panda Cloud Antivirus.

This is a major update and they have some great news for the users of their free version.

They are now going to deliver automatic upgrades to even free users of this antivirus solution.

Previously, free edition users had to manually install new versions after uninstalling the older edition.

Other new features:

Malicious Web & URL Filtering: This requires you to have Panda Security Toolbar installed.

Unified Recycle Bin and Quarantine: A single place to manage all files.

Automatic and transparent upgrades to new product versions

No more nagging advertising: Free users would not get ads promoting the paid version.

Hot updating of behavioral blocking rules for both free and pro users.

Immediate notifications of virus detections

Suspicious detection counter

And plenty of bug fixes.

The company said that one of the primary reason behind making the free edition more capable is that they want users to be secure. And if they want to support their efforts, they are welcome to get the Pro edition.

Panda Cloud Antivirus Pro Edition has following advantages:
