Security is an important aspect now that we routinely surf the net, not only because of viruses that are propagated in an uncontrolled way, but also for other online privacy threats, equally important such as password protection, online transactions and the protection of one's children. When you buy an antivirus, you need to keep in mind all these aspects, and then you realize that more than a simple antivirus, you need a suite that takes into account the major security aspects like BitDefender Internet Security.
Lately I have tried an antivirus application not very well known in Italy like Kaspersky, McAfee, AVG or others, but in this period it is becoming known as a complete suite that embraces different aspects of security on the web, which somehow satisfies the needs and protection of threats that incombonosu on the internet. BitDefendernot just an antivirus, but a real security suite, which has positioned itself in the last five years at the top of the list of viruses.
The new edition of Bitdefender sports a restyling of the user interface. It is equipped with a status panel that turns out to be all right when it is red when necessary to intervene in the configuration. The icons in the new guide on the left bar make it even easier to reach any of the many security components of the application.
If you already have another virus protection software installed on your computer, BitDefender Internet Security will facilitate the installation of the new antivirus, automatically uninstalling the software which will be replaced with the new software.
Other features of BitDefender Internet Security
The antivirus BitDefender Internet Security as we have said, it includes many useful features and functions. His vulnerability scan is not limited to looking for missing Windows updates and application security patches. It also checks weak passwords on Windows user accounts and even checks that the Wi-Fi network is properly secured. The Autopilot function will manage the entire IT security, automatically making the best security decisions, without requiring any intervention by the user.
THE Ransomware malware I'm a serious problem, and Bitdefender deals with it directly. The app prevents unauthorized programs from making any changes to the folders you want to protect. If a legitimate program is blocked, perhaps a used witness editor, you can easily insert that program in the whitelist. To be honest, this is not a Bitdefender exclusive, because even anti-virus vendors such as Panda and Trend Micro offer similar anti-ransomware functionality.
Bitdefender Wallet a complete password manager. Capture and remember password and its extension for your browser, provides a menu of saved secure sites. You can store one or more identity profiles or credit cards and use them to automatically fill out web forms. In the test phase it has not managed the non-standard password pages and does not fill in all the fields on some web modules, but contains all the fundamental functions.
In the spirit of the AutoPilot mode, the Bitdefender firewall does its best to remain hidden. Automatically configure network permissions for known programs. As for the unknown ones, it also allows access, but keeps an eye on them for any misuse of resources. This feature, in other antivirus like Symantec Norton Security Premium and Kaspersky are paid, here you find them included in the basic offer.
Friendly Parental Advisor
With Bitdefender it is also possible to manage the Parental Advisor online on Windows and Android devices, enforcing the rules set by the parents, signaling the child's activity in the use of the computer.
It is possible to create a profile for each of your children. The name, gender, date of birth and optionally a photo can also be added.
BitDefender Internet Security 2017 goes far beyond the minimum features of a suite. Includes anti-virus, anti-phishing, anti-spam, firewall and parental control functions. Among many other features, it also offers password management, secure browsing, protection of malware ransomware and file encryption. We also find some functions in other applications, but here some basic functions are included in the basic version, which in other antivirus programs are offered for payment. In contrast, this software does not include online backup features.
The subscription a BitDefender Internet Security 2017 has an annual cost of 24.99 but if you want to run a test before buying it, you can download the 30-day free trial version.
