July 2012

Bitdefender Offers Almost 'Every Imaginable Security Feature' With 'Small Impact'

Bitdefender®, the award-winning provider of innovative antivirus solutions, won four stars for Total Security 2013 from the prestigious PC Mag, which said the software includes “just about every imaginable security feature” and “small impact on performance.”

The award comes less than a week after PC Mag’s Editor’s Choice distinction was given to Bitdefender Antivirus Plus on July 11.

Bitdefender Total Security 2013 includes just about every imaginable security feature, and then some,” according to the PC Mag review. “The independent labs give it excellent ratings, and all of its components do a good job. It's a very good choice for those who want a full-featured security suite.”

The software offered “excellent results in antivirus lab tests and our own malware cleanup tests,” the magazine added, along with “effective phishing protection,” an “accurate anti-spam,” a “hassle-free firewall” and more.  

Amid the wide range of features and elite detection, Bitdefender carefully considers user’s experience.  “All that protection might be overwhelming, but the Bitdefender Total Security's default Autopilot mode keeps user interaction to an absolute minimum,” PC Mag wrote. “Rather than ask the user to make security decisions, Bitdefender makes its own choices.”

Bitdefender Total Security 2013 was launched last month after a year of intensive research and numerous awards and accolades for the 2012 generation. It represents the latest advance in computer security products, enhancing its #1 ranked antivirus technology and including features such as secure online banking and e-shopping, device anti-theft, parental controls across multiple devices, for complete defense.

Continuing its tradition of “overwhelming” defense, Bitdefender launched on July 17 its Bitdefender Sphere 2013, the comprehensive product that provides all-around security for an unlimited number of desktops, laptops, and mobile devices in your home.

Bitdefender Sphere 2013 now brings compatibility with Windows 8, includes Bitdefender Safepay™ and its secured browser to keep online transactions private and secure, and anti-theft capabilities through Total Security 2013.

“After a fantastic year in which we won widespread praise for our 2012 products and leapt ahead of the industry in terms of protection, we’re happy to start off our 2013 products with a bang,” said Product Manager Catalina Albisteanu. “We expect this is just the start of the recognition to be won by our newly launched latest generation.”
