BitDefender Total Security 2012 Review
3 September 2012
Excerpt: Total Security is the most complete protection suite from Bitdefender. It encompasses all the components in the other bundles and also offers something on the side. As far as the layers of protection are concerned, there are no additional elements. The additional options compared with Internet Security edition refer to PC optimization tasks, offer secure erase possibilities and file encryption.
Conclusion: Bitdefender Total Security 2012 offers all the features you could want in a mega-suite, but it does its job silently. All of its components are good. Some, like phishing protection, are great. This is a good choice for those who want protection without drama.
Pros: Excellent lab test results. Best antiphishing. Facebook protection. Silent, intelligent firewall. Antispam blocked no valid mail. Decent parental controls. Online backup. File encryption and shredding. System tune-up.
Cons: Low to average scores in PCMag malware blocking and removal tests. Some awkward elements in parental control system. Antispam let a quarter of undeniable spam into the Inbox.
Excerpt: Bitdefender Total Security 2012 is a full security software suite that offers an antivirus, firewall, online backup, parental control and more. It has a lightweight profile despite being a very complete program, which is really important because it won't slow down your computer. The protection offered by this program was rated to be above average in our tests and by AVTest.org.
Summary: Last year we knocked Bitdefender for falling behind its competition, and it looks like the company got the message loud and clear. We really like the software's sleek new interface, and its ease of use was above reproach. The addition of the innovative auto-pilot feature, ID anti-theft protection, and Facebook and Twitter scanning make Bitdefender the one to beat. Bitdefender Total Security 2012 is our top pick among security suites.
Pros: Friendly customizable user interface, Autopilot feature reduces pop-ups, Excellent ID theft prevention, Improved our boot time, Social networking scanning
Cons: Overzealous web filter, Software crashed when backing up more than 2GB, Limited instant messaging support
Bitdefender Total Security 2012 is an internet security suite that offers excellent performance at a decent price
