Most, if not all, of the cautious users of personal computers for professional and recreational needs understand how flooded the antivirus market is.
One of the biggest concerns however is the actual logic behind paid antivirus software when there are plenty of free versions. In the case of Bitdefender Antivirus Plus (2014), why would anyone pay $39.95 while they can get adequate protection from the free edition? The difference is all in the features and it is apt for people to understand how superlative the premium package really is.
One of the most notable improvements of the Bitdefender 2014 paid version over the free alternative and earlier editions is the overall improved performance. The antivirus features Photon technology that molds to any computer for better handling of malware without lag. This is quite a significant addition if the paid version is compared to the free edition which lacks the technology. This however has not changed the general looks of the antivirus as it features the same customizable interface as the previous.
The Bitdefender Antivirus Plus 2014 package is also exceptionally good at malware cleanup with scores averaging at over 83%. The improved software package not only enhances speedy scan performance but also improves the malware handling tremendously. Once it detects malware, it generates the necessary logs and prompts the user to decide on the proper actions to be taken. More so, Bitdefender Antivirus Plus 2014 offers real-time malware defense through its browser toolbar and autopilot mode. It promptly blocks all malware infested sites through warning redirects while also wiping out all already downloaded threats.
When it boils down to phishing and privacy protection, Bitdefender Antivirus Plus 2014 does pretty well. The anti-phishing protection scores highly even when it comes to the freshest phishing websites and URLs. The antivirus also provides the user with assured protection of private data through selective categorization. This means that items are named and described differently and stored in encrypted private portions. This makes it possible for prevention of unauthorized transmission from selected user accounts on shared computers. Through a premium protection account, the Bitdefender Antivirus Plus 2014 secures against identity theft and guarantees restoration in case of compromise.
Another momentous feature that is exclusive to the new Bitdefender Antivirus Plus 2014 is the Wallet. This is a secure storage provision which also functions as a password manager. It ideally captures personal and financial info when entered into a secure site and notifies the user of the capture. It can then use the information to handily fill related fields the next time the page is opened. This also adds to the convenience and safety of online transactions through SafePay which blocks Trojans from tapping user credentials.
All these features are well complimented by detailed security reporting in autopilot mode as well as extended social network and vulnerability scanning.
Even though the overall Bitdefender Antivirus Plus 2014 package is all exciting, installing it is quite a challenge especially on a malware-infested computer. This however is not a big deal since the package includes a rescue CD which essentially bypasses all these difficulties.
With 24 hour tech support and across-the-board OS compatibility, Bitdefender Antivirus Plus 2014 is a truly merited personal, business and professional security option. It is more than just a simple dedicated antivirus as it hosts numerous extended functions which assuredly justify the Plus in its name.
