Bitdefender has released their latest line of products recently. Before letting you know how to get Bitdefender Total Security 2010 free for six months, I want to share my views about their latest products. Bitdefender products provide solid security and protect against many evolving threats. But Bitdefender also gained a negative reputation as a resource hog and a false positive detector.
What’s new :
- Improved speeds in scan times and detection times.
- The new products uses new technology which avoids scanning of files which are already marked safe and this results in much faster scans. (Products like Symantec are already using this feature!)
- All new user interface for easy access.
- Improved Parental Controls and Intrusion detection.
- Protection against every type of malware.
- Real-time web protection by scanning all web, email and Instant messaging.
- Free help until your license key is active.
- The installer size is huge and are as follows :- Total Security : 146 MB, Internet Security : 114 MB, Antivirus : 107 MB. Also eats up lot of diskspace.
- Poor firewall, parental controls are not much effective.
- Many false-positives.
