BitDefender released their new security program suite labeled as 2012 with a completely overhauled user interface, designed to meet the demands of computer users that require protection to work 24/7 without interrupting their work and enjoyment. Along with key new features such as social networking protection and an Autopilot mode, BitDefender 2012 Suite may compete with other popular security applications (Norton Antivirus 2011, Kasperky Internet Security 2012, or AVG Internet Security).
At the moment the product is available only in Germany and UK, but further European territories will receive their native version this month. As always there are three different versions to choose from, which will cover you basic or advanced security needs.
BitDefender Antivirus Plus 2012 is the low budget product which can be acquired for £16.99 or 29.95 €. It comes with the basic Antivirus and Antispyware module, a Vulnerability Scanner, a Personal Data Filter, and the Antiphising function. This product scores a plus due to the AutoPilot functionality which provides a hassle-free experience by making optimal security-related decisions without input from you. This means no pop-ups, no alerts, nothing to configure.
BitDefender Internet Security 2012 is the middle version which offers everything that a home user needs from such a security program. Based on the same graphical interface and engine, this version comes with more features for an in-depth security solution. In addition to its sibling product, BitDefender Internet Security 2012 comes with Antispam Shield, a complete Two-way Firewall, and a Parental Control module. You can get it for £29.99 or 49.95 €.
BitDefender Total Security 2012 is the most comprehensive version from the BitDefender Security Suite. Besides the features and functions already present in BitDefender Antivirus Plus 2012 and BitDefender Internet Security 2012, the Total Security version brings a File Shredder and File Encryption module, a Tune-up utility, and a new online service for Backup & File Synch. Being the top version of the whole suite, you have to deal with its price of £49.99 or 69.95 €.
