Bitdefender Threat Scanner Review

Bitdefender has one of the highest rates of malware detection among AV comparison sites and runs fast without affecting the performance of your system. It also comes with a range of extra subscription benefits, including machine protection and ransomware remediation, depending on the plan you choose.

Its antivirus suite combines machine-learning with traditional signature-based scanning to deliver some of the top detection rates in its class. It also comes with a great web security suite as well as a fast VPN and a complete program tune-up, along with a secured browser and numerous privacy safeguards to keep your data safe. In my limited tests, the spam filter of Bitdefender did not flag more than 1 percent of legitimate mail, and its ransomware protection was similarly solid.

A vulnerability scan is a further feature that makes Bitdefender Threat Scanner stand out from its rivals. It looks for weak passwords as well as outdated drives, programs, and Windows vulnerabilities that can be exploited. The tool can be run manually or scheduled and takes just 5 minutes to complete. It’s an improvement over other systems that usually take up to an hour to complete the same job.

Bitdefender offers live chat and telephone support for any issue that you might face. It has always been one of the fastest in the business. The community forum is a great source of information to help you solve problems on your own. The knowledgebase for Bitdefender includes a large number of articles.
