Panda Titanium Antivirus 2008 was a software application suite that provides antivirus capabilities for desktop computers. Developed by Panda Security USA, the suite offers multiple versions that cater to specific markets. For instance, four versions existed that cater to buyers who wish to get an antivirus program for personal use. On the other hand, three versions are available for business users, all of which have varying degrees of features that are targeted at the specific needs of each market segment.
In its most basic form, Panda Titanium Antivirus 2008 offers protection from viruses, malware, and other online threats when a computer is connected to the Internet. Other notable features include the following:
• Real-time detection of social engineering threats on communication channels like email and instant messaging by scanning for potential phishing frauds and attempts to hijack a device by sending malicious attachments.
• Periodic scanning of areas in the computer that are known to harbor harmful executable files that pose as legitimate programs.
• Browser plug-ins are added during installation of the main antivirus software. These are designed to monitor the pages that a user visits and alerts the user of potential threats such as malware that are automatically installed when certain pages are loaded on the browser.
