BitDefender 2012 improves malware detection and removal
By Mike Williams on July 29, 2011, 10:59 AM

BitDefender today released its 2012 family of security suites, which have been enhanced with a range of new and interesting features.

A new monitoring tool tracks process behavior, for instance, helping to detect new and unknown viruses. Integrated cloud services deliver a faster response to new outbreaks. And the new Scan Dispatcher runs scans only when it's idle, so improving security without impacting on your overall system performance.

Browsing protection is now handled by scanning web traffic at the protocol level, so there are no longer any annoying browser add-ons to slow you down, and there's no need to wonder if it'll work with your browser: it should protect just about anything.

An improved Search Advisor highlights potentially dangerous sites in your Google and Bing search results, while social network-specific protection monitors the links in your Twitter and Facebook streams.

The new Rescue Mode provides a Linux-based environment to remove particularly stubborn threats, like rootkits.
