Most of the antivirus companies provide their products as part of a larger suite of security applications, but few come with as many applications and tools as Bitdefender Total Security.. which may or may not be a good thing.
The program comes packed with Bitdefender's antivirus application, but also includes so-called a antispam module, anti-spyware protection, malware protection and a firewall. Though most antivirus applications should indeed come with malware protection, we're a little puzzled as to why Bitdefender decided to market it as an added feature.
After you take away the antivirus and malware protection, you'll also find an in-built firewall system for protecting your computer against hackers and other outside threats common on the Internet. Additionally, Bitdefender Total Security also includes encryption modules for encrypting files and protecting the content on your online chat sessions.
Since Bitdefender includes so much, it also provides power saving settings in case you're running Bitdefender Total Security on a laptop or other portable computing device. You can use two alternative modes: Laptop or Game -- both are self-explanitory.
Overall, Bitdefender Total Security is a little bit of an overkill for the average user but sufficient protection for those who are a little paranoid about doing things online... or for those who are careless when obtaining files on the net.Bitdefender Total Security features and highlights:
