If we had to describe in one word BitDefender's performance since we launched our site in 2006 it would be: consistent.
Among other things, it offers stellar real time virus protection, virus scanning, and threat removal.
Yes, tech support has been a weak spot; luckily, it's good software, so it's a safe assumption that fewer users need the support to begin with.
If you're looking only for basic protection, Bitdefender is worth consideration.
The fact is though that the jump in price between the basic version and the more feature-filled Internet Security suite is negligible, especially when you look at the additional features included.
For instance, while this version includes web browser protection, the upgraded version also includes social media scanning (SafeGo), which monitors your Facebook accounts and alerts you to spam and malware there.
With a variety of useful features, strong antivirus protection, and great ease of use,
BitDefender Internet Security is a great Internet security suite.
It performed extremely well during extensive, multi-device testing of real time virus protection, virus removal, scanning, spyware detection and antivirus updates.
It's also easy to install and remove, and though takes a good bit of space, we found it didn't affect speed or system usability.
What makes the internet security upgrade worth considering is the scope of security features included.
This version has several banking, shopping and online bill paying protection features to help keep financial information and passwords safe.
Other features include parental controls and one-click PC performance optimization.
This version, Bitdefender's most comprehensive offering, adds good features not found in either of its sibling products.
As AVG does with their top-of-the-line offering, Bitdefender also offers secure online storage (2GB), too, via Safebox.
You also get other great features, two of which are especially important if you're a laptop user.
Bitdefender Total Security
If your laptop (or desktop PC for that matter) is stolen, you can locate it from any other computer online and even wipe the contents if needed.
This kind of security is unique: it's usually available only in separate PC/laptop tracking software, which can easily run $100 or more by itself.
Even if you're not a road warrior, it's worth considering for this alone.
