In this article I'm going to share with you the most outstanding novelties and features of the new version of the award winning series of anti-malware security software, BitDefender Antivirus 2009. In this new release some new features were added and existing ones were improved, this “install and forget” product provides top-notch proactive protection against all kind of malware including spyware, phishing attempts and identity theft, at minimal resources consumption.
Solid Protection via B-HAVE Technology
BitDefender Antivirus brings the ability to protect any PC in real time against virus, spyware and other types of Malware, but in my opinion, what is more interesting is that virus detection is not exclusively dependent on a list of known viruses, but through its B-HAVE technology, which can identify new threats and unknown attacks, or "0-day". So, what does B-HAVE mean? B-HAVE stands for Behavioral Heuristic Analyzer in Virtual Environments, and it is a next generation heuristic detection technology which generates a virtual computer-inside-a-computer where programs are run in order to analyze them in search for potential malware behavior. This kind of heuristic detection is based on the fact that if a program shows malware-like characteristics and/or behavior, then probably it is malware, moreover, malware programs usually perform specific actions (which legitimate pieces of software do not) thus making them detectable. However, this may look easy to understand, but in fact, the technology behind the process is highly complex.
Lots of Improvements
Among the improvements this new version we can find:
So,installing and controlling Bit Defender on other computers is easy and intuitive, just a few clicks and it will be finished and running.
HDD Scanning and Cleaning
Regarding malware searching and elimination, BitDefender works really well, without the slightest sign of system slow-down or delay.
And it offered the statistics in a clear and easy to understand way. In my case it showed no virus but in case they appear it will also offer deletion or cleaning status.
Details Always Make the Difference
One last detail that called my attention and I would like to comment is the fact that BitDefender offered to scan for viruses every single device I plugged into my PC, not only USB drives but also CDs and DVDs. Couldn't ask for more!!
The intuitive operation of this version, its automatic hourly updates and free technical support make of BitDefender 2009 one of the best security solutions to keep our PCs protected without affecting its performance. It is really worth every penny, but if you still have some doubts, you can try it for free during a 30-day trial period.
