Bitdefender 2019 gives you the best protection against threats across operating systems, winning Product of the Year from AV-Comparatives. The new cyber-threat intelligence technologies can analyze and identify suspicious network-level activities, and block sophisticated exploits, malware or botnet-related URLs, and brute force attacks.
Here are some of the improvements brought by Bitdefender 2019:
A brand-new interface
The product interface gets a major facelift starting with this version. The most significant change is for the Windows products, which are the most complex and needed the most tweaking to improve navigation and feature discovery. Updates to the UI will be available for the Mac and Android products as well.
The main dashboard is completely redesigned to add security recommendations as well as the ability to pin most used features to the dashboard. Another important change is related to the side menu that is always present to switch with ease between the main dashboard and advanced settings.
Ransomware is highly adaptable to avoid interception by security software, even for small periods of time. This is why Bitdefender 2019 includes a brand-new layer of protection against this type of malware.
The Ransomware Remediation feature identifies whenever a new ransomware attempts to encrypt files and will automatically create a backup of targeted files that will be restored after the malware is blocked. The product will block all processes involved in the attack and start remediation, while also notifying the user.
Online Threat Prevention
With the launch of Bitdefender 2019, we included a new module in the Protection window: Online Threat Prevention. The new network-based adaptive layer of protection prevents exploitation of vulnerabilities in your system, detects and blocks brute-force attempts, prevents your device from being compromised in botnet attacks and prevents sensitive information from being sent in non-encrypted forms.
The improved Autopilot
With the launch of Bitdefender 2019, the Autopilot feature will be ON by default. Furthermore, the ON/OFF switch was abandoned in favor of a recommendation-based system, where you will constantly receive advice based on the way you interact with your system. These recommendations will be used to to highlight different security features that were previously disabled or unknown to the user.
