Bitdefender Antivirus Is Loaded with Features
Aside from a robust anti-virus platform, Bitdefender offers a host of other impressive features. Among the most notable is Safepay, which helps secure online banking and other transactions. By default, Bitdefender detects when users navigate to a banking site in any browser and prompts them to launch it in Safepay
But its use is not limited to banking; any website can be opened in Safepay if users choose to do so. The feature blocks unauthorized access to users’ desktops, guards against any attempt to take snapshots of the main screen and protects online passwords by safeguarding them in a built-in password manager. Safepay even comes with a virtual keyboard that thwarts a hacker’s ability to read keystrokes and operates independently from other browsers.
Finally, Safepay provides hotspot protection when computers are connected to unsecured Wi-Fi networks; for instance, at a coffee shop or hotel. Safepay also supports bookmarks, which lets users navigate safely among favorite banking and shopping sites.
Bitdefender Antivirus Plus Security 2020 also adds a Windows firewall and a spam filter to keep users safe online or simply when checking their mail. The firewall continuously scans web connections and can even halt webcam hijacking.
Another great feature not often seen in an anti-virus platform is Safe Files, which prevents unauthorized changes to important documents and files. By simply adding folders to the program’s watch list, Bitdefender guards the files within against ransomware and other types of malware. The end user can then decide which applications are trusted enough to access the designated Safe Files area.
Finally, Bitdefender adds anti-phishing capability that includes protection from online scams.
For employees working from home and away from their IT departments, protection like that offered by Bitdefender can be invaluable, stopping not only common threats, such as viruses, but also many of the most advanced attacks used online today.
