Bitdefender is the most effective malware detection rate among the AV comparison sites. It also runs very fast without affecting the performance of your system. It comes with additional benefits for subscriptions such as protection for the machine and removal of ransomware, depending on which plan you choose.
Its antivirus suite integrates machine learning with traditional signature-based scans to offer some of the best detection rates in its class. It additionally consists of an excellent internet security collection, a quick VPN, complete tuning tools for your program, a secure browser and a variety of helpful privacy protections to ensure your data is secure. In my limited testing it was able to block less than 1% of legitimate emails and ransomware protection was also very effective.
Another feature that sets bitdefender’s threat scanner apart from the rivals is a vulnerability scanner that scans for weak passwords, outdated programs and drives, and Windows vulnerabilities that can be exploited by hackers. The feature can be run manually or scheduled and takes just 5 minutes to complete. It’s an improvement over competitors that normally take between 30 and 60 minutes to accomplish the same task.
If you experience any issues the customer support of Bitdefender is available via live chat or via phone. It has always been among the fastest in the business. The community forum is a fantastic source of information that can help you solve problems on your own. The knowledgebase of the company includes a wealth of articles.
