I had a recent scare on my home computer, but it was handily intercepted by BitDefender, part of a line of 2013 security solutions. Since I run a multi-computer environment, including behind a secured LAN and ones that are connected to the Internet.
I was glad for Bitdefender Total Security, which keeps my local network secure and blocks threats to sensitive information, since, as we have all experienced, outside threats can worm their way into a home network when least expected. I was glad the user-friendly proactive protection was there to counter virus, spyware and phishing attacks. As a parent, I will certainly be putting parental controls to use, and probably social network protection.
I liked the BitDefender Safepay, with the need to work through my kids' holiday wish list to get ahead of the Xmas curve. Since the Autopilot feature keeps the software working unobtrusively, I don't even notice. And when one of my Facebook friends sends me a bogus link, BitDefender is there.
I check out PCMag and CNET, and discovered BitDefender is ranked #1 in antivirus software, earning both sources' Editor's Choice awards. That confirms my recent experience with BitDefender; I am going to check out the opportunity to win a new computer (always worthwhile) since mine has BitDefender installed.
I am going to check out BitDefender's increased focus on useful services, such as Safebox, Device Anti-Theft, and Parent Control. I looked over the improved dashboard, and this kind of computer protection integrates well with my mobile devices.
