Bitdefender Internet Security
BitDefender Internet Security is a complete protection suite designed to provide your computer with the latest technologies against viruses, phishing, hackers and other virtual threats that may come your way. Besides the antivirus engine, the suite also bundles antispam, parental control and social network protection.
The interface is very user-friendly and attractive. It enables you to view the current protection status for the antivirus, firewall, and antispam modules, while updates are automatically applied on a regular basis (there's also a manual option to check for new updates and install them on the spot).
The parental module (a highly intuitive function that also comes with predefined profiles) can be extensively configured to filter online websites for children, while scanning options include quick, full system, custom, vulnerability scan and a rescue mode.
BitDefender Internet Security provides a strong wall of protection against e-threats and phishing attempts. A special feature of the suite is Bitdefender Safepay, a unique capability designed to secure your banking operations and prevent your financial data from being hacked.
BitDefender Internet Security comes with a lot of other valuable features, including an adjustable scanning mode, instant messaging control, Facebook control, a BitDefender toolbar (monitors online traffic and other activity). Switching to auto pilot mode will disable BitDefender from displaying any notifications.
Our tests ran smoothly as it seems that, once again, BitDefender manages to keep up with modern standards. Memory is moderately used during an active scan and the application didn't present any bugs or crashes whatsoever.
Thanks to the very strong feature pack and to the impenetrable defense it offers for online and offline activities, you should give this Internet Security suite a try as your main antivirus as it will surely not let you down.
