On Monday, July 16th, the team at Panda Security was glad to announce the release of Panda Cloud Antivirus 2.0. This version comes to replace the 1.5 edition that was rolled out to the public about a year ago (in June 2011 to be more precise). Speaking about v. 1.5, those who are on this version will automatically be upgraded to the new 2.0 release.

After a really long beta with over 165.000 active beta testers from over 176 countries we are happy to announce that Panda Cloud Antivirus 2.0, the first free cloud antivirus, is finally available for download,” said Pedro Bustamante on behalf of Panda Security.
