It’s been a while since the cloud computing security services appeared for the first time as a magical security solution for computer users. If I remember, April 2009 is the moment when Panda Security announced the first Cloud Antivirus software, in Beta stage at that time, a free security solution that benefits of another technology developed by Panda, the Collective Intelligence. In a few words, it’s about a huge database built with results of analyzed samples received by Panda Security Labs during years, results that are accessible by all the users from the cloud automatically and almost instantly. To have an idea about the size of this database, consider that Panda analyzed hundreds of millions of samples until now, and the new samples are analyzed and classified in a few minutes.
Baidu.com Inc. or Baidu is a Chinese URL language-based Internet search engine that is popularly known in China. Currently, it is China’s top search engine site that dominates nearly 70% of the Chinese Market. Aside from Chinese language search engine, Baidu is also engaged in Online Marketing operations.
The funny thing in the report released by Google is that the most popularly term searched by users in their website is the term “baidu.” In fact, that is the name of their largest rival in the search engine market of China. And it’s no surprise that the Chinese prefers their homegrown brand compared to Google. Their strong sense of patriotism is obvious in many ways.
