Bitdefender Internet Security guards the electronic doorway to your home. When hackers stumble across Bitdefender, they lose confidence and move on to easier opportunities. You can manage Bitdefender Internet Security whether you're a beginner or pro. Deep system scans take time and resources, but you have the option to scan quickly or deeply. This product notices when system resources are free enough to run scans, so it preserves performance when you need it most.
Virus detection is one of the important aspects of internet security suites, and Bitdefender's virus detection is superior. It receives awards and certifications from test labs. It demonstrates above-average detection rates for malware. Bitdefender scans incoming and outgoing PC communications, and the scans run in real time. One of the most respected third-party test labs is AV-Test in Germany, which recognizes Bitdefender as the best antivirus engine. Bitdefender applies three levels of defense. The first level checks for known virus signatures that Bitdefender has already collected in the cloud and for which there is a known cure. The second level detects unknown threats and isolates them in a virtualized environment. After the threats are corralled, the software watches to see whether the suspected files attempt to modify certain files, communicate with sensitive areas or produce files associated with known viruses. If the virus behaves normally in the virtual environment, Bitdefender allows it to operate. If it demonstrates threatening behavior, the application deletes it. The third level of defense, Active Virus Control, watches each process running on the PC, and then it checks for any malware-like behavior.
The Bitdefender Internet Security suite includes a two-way firewall to complement its antivirus software features. The versatile firewall will automatically adjust settings to match your location. A Wi-Fi monitor prevents unwanted attempts to access your network. A disabled firewall won't do you much good, but gamers often turn off firewall settings in order to play computer games. With Bitdefender's gamer mode, you will stay protected while gaming. Gamer mode stops interruptions while you're in full-screen mode for videos or presentations.
This antivirus software filters the links you encounter in Facebook and Twitter. It also includes an anti-phishing capability so that you can know the real domain name if the website in question is projecting a false identity.

You can use the parental filters to block sites, messages and emails that contain words or phrases that you flag. You can restrict, enable and be aware of your child's internet content. You can limit internet and application access to specific times or just give a time allowance. This antivirus software includes complete time control settings similar to those in the best internet filter software.
Bitdefender Internet Security protects against all malware, including viruses, adware, Trojans, keyloggers and browser hijackers. It has intrusion-detection tools to block attacks by DLL (dynamic-link library) code injection, a particularly insidious hacker technique. DLL code injection occupies the address space of a legitimate process and changes its behavior from good to bad. For example, a hacker might assign injected code with the task of reading the textboxes that store passwords. Bitdefender stops unauthorized attempts to alter system files and registry keys. And it defends against attempts to access PC memory. It can even defend itself against methods that attack Bitdefender's own processes. It also checks any USB drive that you attach to your PC. Whenever you perform online banking or shopping, Bitdefender opens a separate secure browser.
Bitdefender has an excellent 24/7 support system with easy-to-access professional assistance and helpful resources. You can search for answers to questions online. It is easy to call, email or chat online. The vendor's blog has interesting posts on security topics. There is also a security news feed about security topics and emerging threats.
The product looks good, and independent lab tests confirm that it works. Bitdefender Internet Security suite keeps computers clean and secure without sacrificing performance. It guards the border between goodness and chaos. When hackers dare to cross the line, things will not go well for their malware. Bitdefender Internet Security is a wolf dragon that devours computer worms for breakfast.
