Recently two prestigious award-giving bodies, AV-TEST Award for 2011 and 2012 RoundUp of Security Suites positioned Bitdefender Internet Security as one of the best antivirus software solutions. Showing that it provides quality, tested and proven internet security solutions.

In the said AV-TEST award for 2011, Bitdefender garnered the top rank when it comes to antivirus solutions given as Best Protection Award 2011. With this award, it has been proven once more that Bitdefender is the best and ever proven security software when it comes to total protection and security solutions.

Through this, it reestablishes again and again the standing of Bitdefender Internet Security as world’s leader in protection when it comes to internet threats and malwares.

The recognition given to Bitdefender in this prominent award-giving body leads the introduction of the annual awards by AV-Test Institute, a respected security-software testing lab based in Germany, a known authority to Bitdefender and all other competitors in the said event.

Among the tough competitors in AV-TEST, Bitdefender won a total rating of 80.5 points in three categories of tests, ahead of nearest competitor Kaspersky with 78 points, and third-placed F-Secure with 77.5. Panda took 71.5 points while Symantec received 71 points.

Testing covered protection, removal of threats and usability. Bitdefender led the Protection category with 29.5 points – a full point ahead of Kaspersky, and placed second in removal and usability.(PRWire)

With this remarkable winning ranking of Bitdefender in three categories of tests, this marks the proven quality of Bitdefender as the trusted and ever tested brand and provider of antivirus solutions in the world.

Through this recognition given to Bitdefender, this surely maintains and reaffirms once more in achieving its goal to be the best and leading company for security, total protection and antivirus solutions.

Moreover, Bitdefender Internet Security 2012 is truly proud to say that it came in third place in Computerworld 2012 Roundup of Security Suites. Despite the fact that it brought together the bronze award in general, it has still the captivating standing as the highest ranking in the name of malware detection, blocking, and removal tests. The overall results have made Bitdefender Internet Security as the best.

In 2012 RoundUp of Security Suites, the Bitdefender suite found and blocked 96 percent of samples in our  real-world malware tests (which help to show how well antivirus software can stop brand-new malware), and it spotted 99.96 percent of known malware samples. Both of those results are very good–the latter was the third-best result in that particular test that we saw this year.

False positives were almost nonexistent, as the suite misidentified only one safe file as being malicious. And the Bitdefender software was the best of the test group in cleanup, too: It detected and disabled all active sample infections, and removed every last trace of malware 90 percent of the time.(Computerworld)

With these honor and prestige given to Bitdefender Internet Security, it clearly states that,  nothing beats Bitdefender when it comes to internet security, protection and antivirus solutions.

safesurfingHello Friends,

I have received several questions regarding what  is the best solution for Safe Home Surfing. I thought this is a good time to put this matter to rest. The simple answer is that we need a software that has an antivirus solution and a firewall.

So what is the difference between Antivirus and Firewall you may ask?

The short  answer… Antivirus – To put it quite simply the antivirus is to take care and protect you against viruses and the Firewall is to make sure no Trojans or Spyware has passed through your antivirus and is sending confidential information out from your computer.

The longer answer that is depending on how computer literate you are is for example, if you receive an email that is a phishing attempt, would you recognize it? If not, you should use either some kind of anti phishing solution or have an antivirus that includes this protection. (Phishing is an attempt to send you to a fake website, looking like the real thing to trick you to reveal your login information. The criminal will then use this information to login to your real account and steal your money. These emails normally disguise themselves to be from banks, friends in your address book or online memberships.

Below I have described the different protection areas you may need . Then it’s up to you to see and decide with your knowledge what will be most suitable for your needs.

Antivirus – Protects you against malicious viruses that can damage the functionality of your computer.

Firewall – Will stop secretly installed software (virus, adware, spyware) that will contact servers outside your computer and send information about your computer and what you have stored there.

Antispam – to filter/block annoying emails coming to your inbox or sometimes warn you about the emails.

Anti phishing – warns about emails and websites that are trying to spoof information to make you reveal your passwords and also prevents personal information from leaking via e-mail, web or instant messaging.

Security – allows you to connect to any network anywhere and automatically modifies your firewall protection settings to suit your location. Also has a Wi-Fi monitor that helps prevent unauthorized persons to access your wi-fi network.

Privacy control – Privacy settings to make sure you don’t give out too much information when surfing.

Parental control – To restrict users from reaching certain websites for example block access to inappropriate websites and e-mail. Schedule and limits kids’ access to Internet and to applications.

New Parental Control Features in Bitdefender 2010

  • Newly added reporting system allowing parents to view what websites their children visit.
  • Moreover, parents can set specific time intervals in which their children are allowed to access the Internet or use certain applications.

I currently use the following security applications and I will share my tips which have worked with you:

BitDefender 2010 Internet Security –  I used to us it only for Antivirus and Firewall and had the antispam, privacy control and parental control turned off. The reason I did not use all functions is because I wanted my system to be affected as little as possible. Fortunately with the new release of Bitdefender 2010 you can have this items activated without affecting your computer speed at all!

Apart from that I also use Roboform to store my passwords. You can install a free version that allows you to store upto 10 logins. One reason is that if someone would be able to install a keylogger on my computer they would not see the passwords I enter anyways. Other reasons is that I can carry all my passwords between computers, but that’s not security related.

I also use adware a no-cost version to scan my computer for adware about once a month.

I would recommend Bitdefender Internet Security version.  Reason being  Bitdefender Internet Security will lock out  viruses, hackers & spam, while providing parental control and firewall protection. Unless you have need for the added hard disk maintenance functionality of  Bitdefender Total Security.  Total security has more of  hard disk functionality than security functionality really.

With Bitdefender Total Security you have the following additional features which are hard disk functionality:

.    Backup functionality
.    Remove registry entries
.    Delete files so that they are irrecoverable

Basically the Total security version of Bitdefender offers you a combination of computer protection and at the same time computer maintenance.

Until Next Time Keep yourself and Kids Surfing Safe 🙂
