BitDefender Internet Security v10 covers all the security needs of an Internet-connected family. It provides comprehensive protection against viruses, spyware, spam, scams, phishing attempts, intruders and objectionable web content.
The purpose of the antivirus module is to ensure detection and removal of all viruses in the wild. BitDefender Antivirus uses robust scan engines certified by ICSA Labs, Virus Bulletin, Checkmark, CheckVir and TÜV.
Full E-mail Protection BitDefender runs on the POP3/SMTP protocol level, filtering incoming and outgoing e-mail messages, regardless of the e-mail client used, without any additional configuration.
The firewall module filters network traffic and controls the access permission of applications connecting to the Internet. In Stealth Mode, your computer is “hidden” from malicious software and hackers. The firewall module is capable of automatically detecting and protecting against port scans (streams of packets sent to a machine in order to find “access points”, often in preparation for an attack).
The new and improved BitDefender Antispam technology employs remarkable technological innovations which allow it to adapt to new spamming techniques as they emerge, and to “learn” its user’s preferences to block spam while maintaining a very low ratio of legitimate mails tagged as spam.
BitDefender monitors and prevents potential spyware threats in real-time, before they can damage your system. By making use of a comprehensive database of spyware signatures, it will keep your computer spyware-free.
The BitDefender parental control module can block access to web sites, e-mails you deem inappropriate, or the Internet (for certain periods of time, such as when it’s “homework time”), and it can prevent applications such as games, chat, file-sharing programs or others from running.
