New Bitdefender offers social network protection and Autopilot mode.
Bitdefender has released its new Total Security 2012, offering defence from threats such as hackers, viruses, and identity theft attacks.
Bitdefender Total Security 2012 boasts a completely overhauled user interface and has been designed to meet the demands of computer users that require protection to work 24/7 without interruption. Key new features include social networking protection, an Autopilot mode and scan dispatcher to maintain system performance. It launches alongside sister products Bitdefender Internet Security 2012 and Bitdefender Antivirus Plus 2012.
When in Autopilot mode, the product makes intelligent, optimal security-related decisions without input from the user. This means no pop-ups, no alerts and nothing to configure after setup. Importantly, users can still easily access the dashboard to make their own in-depth decisions should they wish to do so.
Bitdefender’s new social networking security feature will filter and block social-networking specific e-threats by scanning the links users receive from friends on Facebook while also monitoring and advising on privacy settings. Meanwhile, the scan dispatcher finds and uses time-slices when system resource usage falls below a certain threshold to perform recurring scans of the entire system. This way Bitdefender does not interfere with user-initiated actions and does not impact system responsiveness.
The range of new and improved features in Bitdefender Total Security 2012 also includes:
* Safebox – Online backup and file synchronisation. Bitdefender Safebox monitors important files and instantly backs them up to a secure remote server whenever a change is detected. Backed up files become available to users’ other computers on which Bitdefender is installed. Bitdefender Total Security 2012 comes with 2 GB of free storage.
* Rescue mode. If e-threats, such as rootkits, cannot be removed from within the Windows operating system, the computer is re-booted in Rescue Mode – a trusted environment which is then used for cleanup and restoration.
* Virtualised browser. Launches the browser in a Bitdefender-provided environment, isolating it from the operating system.
* Flexible interface. Drag-and-drop modules to get quick access to the actions you perform most often directly from the main window.
Forging ahead to take BitDefender to all corners of the market, distributors Holton & Associates has extended its reach into the educational market place.
