Bitdefender Antivirus Plus 2015 is a versatile and comprehensive security suite. With the new Profiles and Autopilot, the app seamlessly switches between work and play and makes sure you're not interrupted by security scans or settings tweaks. Bitdefender Antivirus Plus 2015 is less intrusive and has more options, quietly protecting and optimizing your PC without making a lot of demands on you.
Top of the class: Bitdefender Antivirus Plus consistently lands in the top rank of security software in independent lab tests. In recent real-world protection tests by AV-Comparatives, Antivirus Plus blocked 99.8 percent of malware. Bitdefender Antivirus also ranked as one of the suites that least impacted system performance.
Optimization and extras: In addition to virus protection, Antivirus Plus 2015 features a standard PC optimization kit with a Registry cleaner, a disk defragmenter, and various cleanup tools. Bitdefender Wallet acts as a secure password manager for sensitive payment data used in online transactions. Safepay offers a third-party browser for added security during online shopping.
Clean UI: Bitdefender's user interface features a menu that is both stylish and functional. The interface pairs well with Windows 8's design and makes Antivirus Plus easy to navigate.
Initial scan is a slog: Antivirus Plus does its initial scan during installation. Theoretically this makes sense, but in practice, installing in an already troubled system (laced with malware) means that the process of downloading, scanning, and installing gets massively bogged down. We'd much prefer to opt out of this initial scan when doing a total PC cleanup.
Cards not accepted here: Bitdefender Wallet's forms are difficult to fill out. Safepay is a great concept, but since it involves a third-party browser, some sites will experience trouble loading or won't load at all, making the shopping experience a drag.
Bitdefender Antivirus Plus 2015 remains the top challenger in its field. The Plus in the antivirus suite means additional security and cleanup tools. The shopping protection measurements show Bitdefender's attentiveness to its customers' needs, though these still have some way to go -- they are somewhat functional but not flawless. Overall, with top real-world scores and minimal performance impact, Bitdefender Antivirus Plus 2015 offers protection that is hard to beat.
