Our lives are divided into two distinct realms, online and offline, and as we start taking up more online time, security becomes a serious issue, protecting our online lives from the malicious, dubious and nefarious is a pretty serious business.
Bitdefender Total Security 2012 -BTS2012 - was developed by Romania based software company SOFTWIN. Bitdefender has a great tradition of providing leading edge antivirus technology in a simple to use interface. Bitdefender was the first antivirus applications that allowed automatic software updates, the first to include a personal firewall, and the first to include behavioral detection – B-HAVE – to spot virus’s without a virus definition. SOFTWIN continues to push these boundaries of technology, staying one step ahead of the steadily evolving world of virus and antivirus.
There’s a bevvy of Antivirus/Protection software out there, so what seperates Bitdefender from the pack? First up, BTS2012 doesn’t require a reboot after install – we like this a heap, it’s also a clue at just how clever this suite is – the program is up-and-running In-Full, immediately. We downloadedBTS2012 which was pretty seamless, and were immediately struck byBTS2012′s ease of use, for such an outwardly simple application, BTS2012 certainly packs some serious tech-punch.
