"Too Good to be True"

November 14, 2014  |  By flavouride

 |  Version: Bitdefender Antivirus Free 1.0.21.1099

Pros

It's Free with no nags or ads, and feature-rich:-
- Based on The paid version which is a top dog which beats most of the other commercial products
- Frequent Antivirus & Detection Engine updates - at least 5 times a day
- Intelligent File Shield - automatically repairs or quarantines known threats
- Intelligent Web Shield - automatically blocks access to malicious web contents and doesn't require additional BHOs or other browser add-ons
- Intelligent HIPS aka Antispyware or Program Firewall - automatically blocks internet access for badly behaved programs
- Anti-Rookits
- The x64 version is a full amd64 suite which gives no trace of a single 32-bit process in the Task Manager
- Virtually no adverse effect on Windows and other program start-ups and shut-downs
- Extremely low memory footprints

Cons

- Under-advertised and under-documented: doesn't say what it does, the official Bitdefender Free Antivirus download page is the only place which states all its features
- This Free version is not submitted for independent AV labs for certifications, it's difficult to believe before seeing some stats, one can only depend upon the company's reputation
- Ultra slow initial deep sweep - took 4 hours for a 250GB HDD yet found 0 threats although subsequent deep sweeps took only 42 minutes

Summary

For a reputable, free and feature-rich AV suite one can hardly ask for more, but hope someone can publish some real test results for this free version
