With a new antivirus treat fresh out of the oven, Bitdefender is proposing a new era of digital security. In today’s world full of threats and malicious entities that scour the internet, it’s more important than any time before to have complete control over security.

There are many factors to keep in mind, ranging from keeping threats out to keeping yourself safe when you browse the web. It’s not about browsing the web either. Many attackers will try to hijack your desktop or physical device, making life a torment for those that don’t use antivirus protection. BitDefender is also the first big antivirus company to release their 2018 product lineup already, so that’s why we already included them in our list with the best antivirus for 2018.

There are many reasons for which you should get the latest Bitdefender version, but here are just a couple of them:

The latest version

As time passes, more virus threats and hacker attacks will reveal themselves to the world, making it harder and harder for outdated software to keep up with protection. Having the latest version of Bitdefender will ensure that the most recent means of protection are in place. Professional antivirus service providers like Bitdefender work to bring more functionality to their software which means that every new feature has a precise place in the developer’s plan.

Features

There are many reasons for which you should get the latest Bitdefender version, but here are just a couple of them:

The new Advanced Threat Defense feature acts like a guard dog that is able to sniff out any possible threat. Sometimes, threats are disguised as regular processes, but they won’t be able to get passed Bitdefender which can tell legitimate Windows processes from shady or phony ones.

The Safe files feature turns the computer into an impenetrable fortress. To be more precise, it’s like it creates these little bunkers within the system, where your most important and sensitive data can be stored. And just like a real life bunker, no one unauthorized can get in. This will stop hackers from trying to use data present in the system to initiate a ransomware attack.

The Webcam Protection feature makes sure no one can remotely access your webcam. This is pretty much one of the oldest tricks in the book but not being versed in IT, many users still become victims. That can be avoided with Bitdefender which will act as a big wall between your privacy and nosy intruders.

Downloading Bitdefender 2018 for Windows PC

The software has been made available in both x64 and x86 formats so that all users can benefit from the new Bitdefender. Depending on which version is appropriate for your system, click the associated link and you’ll be good to go.
