BitDefender has released its latest security software package, Total Security 2011, which offers protection from viruses, spyware, phishing and identity theft.
The software includes anti-virus, firewall and network management tools, file encryption, online back-up and automatic hourly updates.
The customisable user interface allows consumers to change the software to match their own needs, as well as create shortcuts to gaming or laptop modes. It also includes a streamlined installation process, smart user tips, video tutorials and free 24-hour technical support.
The vendor claims that new performance optimisation features let users keep their whole system safe without slowing down any other running applications.
“Security isn’t simply a matter of locking everything out; it’s a series of carefully managed choices, balancing the needs of users with the realities of the digital world. Connectivity has taken the personal computer into new realms – online gaming, e-learning, collaborative workgroups – launching a new era of personal security,” said Vince Hwang, BitDefender’s global director of product delivery.
“BitDefender 2011 products address this significant change in the security landscape by continuing to provide superior protection from online attacks, while offering major improvements to system performance and the ability for users to personalise their settings to best match their individual style and needs.”
The other security packages in the 2011 range are Antivirus Pro 2011 and Internet Security 2011.
