Bitdefender Threat Scanner Review

Bitdefender has the highest malware detection rate among AV comparison sites. It also runs very fast without affecting the performance of your system. It comes with additional benefits for subscriptions like protection for the machine and removal of ransomware according to the plan you select.

Its antivirus suite combines traditional signature-based scans and machine learning to deliver some the most accurate detection rates in its class. It also comes with a great web safety collection, a speedy VPN, complete toolkits for tuning up your program, a safe browser and variety of helpful privacy protections to keep your data secure. In my limited tests, Bitdefender’s spam filter falsely flagged less than 1 percent of legitimate mail, and its ransomware defense was equally effective.

Another characteristic that sets the Bitdefender threat scanner apart from other threat scanners is a vulnerability scan that scans for weak passwords, obsolete drives and programs, and Windows vulnerabilities that could be exploited by hackers. The tool can be run by hand or scheduled, and takes around 5 minutes. This is a significant improvement over competitors that require up to an hour to finish the same task.

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