Panda Internet Security is a capable security suite with protection for Windows, Android, iOS and Mac.

The Windows module offers a good range of features: accurate antivirus, browser protection (via an optional toolbar), a firewall and wi-fi protection to detect and block intruders. The Data Shield prevents sensitive information falling into the wrong hands, parental controls keep your kids safe online, and there's a virtual keyboard to bypass keyloggers.

Mac and iOS protection is more about the basics, with antivirus and an iPhone location service, while the Android tools take this a little further: antivirus, device optimisation, a location service, and the option to lock or wipe your device remotely.

All of this is easy enough to set up, though look out for the option to install a browser toolbar - it'll change your home and search pages unless you clear some checkboxes.

After that, the program proves reliable and accurate as ever. The 2016 edition brings new checks for wifi vulnerabilities, a new engine, and smarter Collective Intelligence, offering greater protection with less impact on performance.

Panda Internet Security 2016 offers great protection and is the best value choice in Panda's range. If you can do without the extras in Global Protection - password manager, file encryption/ shredding and basic PC cleanup - then Internet Security would be our pick.
