BitDefender Internet Security 2011 review
A powerful Romanian security suite
BitDefender is among the best Internet security suites available today. They are very popular and loved by both beginners and experts in computers. Is their latest BitDefender Internet Security 2011 software as good (or even better) than previous versions? Let’s find out from our test and review below.
Very easy to setup
Other versions of this program were very easy to set up and start using; this one is even easier to install and flexible once full installation is complete due to the step-by-step detailed instructions. The software is available for free download on the website of producer. The interface has been redesigned as well as personalized; it now offers three views and users can pin tools they use the most to the main screen. Beginners will navigate through the latest BitDefender Internet Security 2011 easily and quickly, thanks to its very organized tabs and tools. Updates ran automatically every hour.
Impressive antivirus protection
When we tested the program, antivirus protection was excellent; it scanned in real time received and sent e-mails, IMs, computer communications and web traffic. Behavior of programs and suspicious activity there were analyzed by a very good technology; after successful detection they were immediately stopped. The Search Advisor technology was another superb feature that gave each URL we tried to access a security ranking of green, yellow or red. The BitDefender IS 2011 also efficiently protected our PC from Trojans, browser hijackers, adware, DLL code injection attacks, keyloggers and attempts to change registry keys and system files. The 2-way Firewall option automatically adjusted its settings depending on our location and the built-in Wi-Fi monitor provided effective protection from attempts made by people who wanted to access our wireless network. Parental controls are also offered.
The low system requirements
The BitDefender Internet Security suite 2011 is one of that software that run in the background and doesn’t require constant attention. When it comes to actual scanning, the software comes with several of them. The Deep Scan one, for example, took quite a lot of time, but it left our PC clean; the Quick Scan greatly reduced system load. Whenever there was a security issue, the product added a bright red exclamation mark next to it.
When it came to customer support, the newest BitDefender Internet Security was extremely helpful. We could read online for information, e-mail, chat or call them on the telephone.
As we come to the end of our review, we have to say that this software is indeed one of the best out there in 2011.
