Why antivirus peace of mind doesn’t have to cost you… anything

24 May 18

Investing in an antivirus solution can often be a tedious task that requires a lot of forethought and research before you are willing to hand over large sums of hard-earned cash.

There are a lot of solutions out there that can promise the world, while installing a whole bunch of extra ‘add-on’ features that frankly most users won’t ever use or think about.

Paid antivirus solutions do have the potential to offer a lot of value for money, but for users who just need to get a robust degree of protection to thwart the latest immediate threats, free solutions can be a great alternative.

Bitdefender Antivirus Free takes this one step further, providing advanced real-time protection to Windows operating systems against a vast range of modern threats.

Bitdefender Antivirus Free Edition is blazing fast, free to use, and loaded only with the bare-bones protection features that every computer needs.

The solution leverages in-the-cloud scanning technology to effectively reduce the impact of the product on the system to zero, meaning you’ll essentially never notice any performance degradation at all.

Although it’s unobtrusiveness is at no sacrifice to the solution’s effectiveness, which is where this surprisingly powerful antivirus really shines.

Bitdefender Antivirus Free offers an intelligent approach to antivirus protection, with automatic protection against all e-threats.

The solution features market-leading virus scanning and malware removal, with powerful scan engines to ensure immediate removal of all malware, including worms, trojans, zero-day exploits, rootkits and spyware.  

It also helps users thwart more modern and trending attacks, like ransomware, phishing and e-fraud, giving users peace of mind when accessing emails, online shopping or banking websites.

With real-time threat detection, the solution automatically checks for behavioural anomalies and closely monitors your active apps, taking immediate action when anything suspicious is detected.

It also leverages Bitdefender's web filtering technology, ensuring that users never land on a harmful website.

Overall, Bitdefender Antivirus Free Edition is an antivirus solution that users can rely on, without shelling out any cash at all.

It uses a minimalistic approach to make sure of the one thing that matters, whether you’re a rookie or a techie, your PC will be defended against intruders.
