Antivirus programs: which are the most convincing?

by TM Maria Be a king in your own kingdom

Antivirus programs are now part of the basic equipment of every computer to achieve optimal protection against malware. The Internet carries a high risk: viruses, worms and Trojans represent only a small part of the danger, and new and increasingly complex techniques appear and spread rapidly. If a computer is infected with a virus, it can lead to the loss of sensitive data such as passwords, banking data or personal data.


What are the criteria for choosing suitable antivirus software?

In order to find the right program for your computer system, it is important to consider several criteria. Should the software just provide basic protection or a high level of security with the best virus-fighting success rate? Do you need special tools, such as a protection zone for online banking, or encryption for particularly sensitive data? Finally, user behavior plays a major role in decision making which will lead to choosing a free version or a paid version.. However, it should not be assumed that the most expensive program necessarily offers the best protection. As a user, it is important to be aware of the pros and cons of each program, and to choose software based on your own needs.


Comparison of Antivirus Programs: A Brief Overview

There are many antivirus programs on the market like BitDefender, NortonLifeLock, Avira, Kaspersky, AVG or Avast to name a few. With this strong competition, the quality of programs tends to increase, especially in terms of safety, performance, service and support, areas in which the differences are now barely recognizable. Free antiviruses are now subject to high standards, and have become attractive alternatives. To know the security features of antivirus software, additional tools and functions as well as the differences from paid programs, we offer you a detailed overview based on a selection of the best providers.


Bitdefender

Bitdefender is a famous Romanian company, publishing various antivirus programs, and offers packages suitable for individuals and businesses. With paid cross-platform products like Small Office Security, Premium Security or Total Security, Bitdefender emphasizes high quality in terms of security, range of services and program operation, which also means high prices. The operation of the program is clearly organized, and the user-friendly interfaces also facilitate use on touch-sensitive terminal devices. Among other things, Bitdefender products are distinguished by the following characteristics:


  • Real-time scanner: the program provides a constantly active safety field and, thanks to the scanner integrated in the cloud, remains powerful without consuming too much computing power

  • Automatic Updates: Programs are updated hourly and thus achieve a high success rate in detecting various types of malware.

  • Safepay: special protection for financial transactions

  • Spam protection: filters unwanted messages in the inbox

  • Vulnerability analysis: shows the possible vulnerabilities of the computer system


However, the one major downside of Bitdefender is that the range of services is also reduced with lower prices. The cheapest version of the antivirus software doesn't have spam protection, firewalls, mobile protection, and additional encryption techniques.
