Changes and improvements on the recently launched Bitdefender 2018

Bitdefender has just released an update for its products, greatly improving several key security aspects. Bitdefender Total Security 2018, Bitdefender Internet Security 2018 and Bitdefender Antivirus Plus 2018 are already available on the company’s website so all the users can download and use them. Keeping PCs safe is important in order for them to function well and avoid any issues.

Users who already have these products will be able to download Bitdefender’s latest versions from the company’s website, therefore replacing previous versions in order to keep your PC updated and safe against threats.

Right now, we will show you some of the main features that these three versions have:

Bitdefender 2018 sports five notable and important changes, although not all of these updates are available in all of its products.

Advanced Threat Defense

It is available in all of Bitdefender 2018’s editions.

Advanced Threat Defense is a proactive technology that is designed to identify unknown threats in real time on devices running the security software. What it does is mark processes and actions, and if a process reaches a certain threshold, it is blocked and listed as harmful. It also makes decisions automatically if that is how we configure it.

Webcam Protection

It is only available in Bitdefender Internet Security 2018 and Bitdefender Total Security 2018.

It monitors the access to the camera and blocks unknown applications if they try to access it, letting us know about it so we allow or disallow them the access. There is also a whitelist of applications where we can add any program that we want.

Any application that may be suspicious and that is out of that whitelist is automatically blocked from accessing our webcam until we allow it.

Safe Files

It is available in all of the editions.

It is a Bitdefender 2018’s new feature designed to protect important files against ransomware attacks, preventing sensitive files from being encrypted or blocked, making us pay a ransom, which is how ransomware work.

Firewall: again, it is only available in Bitdefender Internet Security 2018 and Bitdefender Total Security 2018.

It comes with new features designed to improve usability, including a list of the latest 15 processes for which firewall rules have been created.

Continuous updates

It is available in all of the editions.

Users will get Bitdefender’s latest versions directly through updates.

These are the new features that we are going to find once we update Bitdefender to its latest version. Keeping our PC secure and up to date is important in order to prevent any problem and to maintain an optimum performance because a lot of threats arrive via Internet.

We recently published an article where we talked about the best Google Chrome’s extensions that would help us improving our security when web browsing. It is precisely inside web browsers where one of the most important threat sources resides, so having a proper security can help us tackle any possible harmful files that try to access our device.
