Autopilot: Autopilot 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.
Social Network Protection: Bitdefender filters/blocks social-networking specific e-threats by scanning the links you receive from your Facebook and Twitter friends, and monitors your privacy settings.
Scan Dispatcher: The Scan Dispatcher finds and uses time-slices when system resource usage falls below a certain threshold to perform recurring scans of your entire system. This way Bitdefender does not interfere with user-initiated actions and does impact system responsiveness.
Safebox--Online Backup & File Synchronization: Bitdefender Safebox monitors your important files and instantly backs them up to a secure remote server whenever a change is detected. Backed up files become available to your other computers on which Bitdefender is installed. Bitdefender Total Security comes with 2GB of free storage.
Rescue Mode: If e-threats, such as rootkits, cannot be removed from within the Windows operating system, the computer is re-booted in Rescue mode--a trusted environment which is then used for cleanup and restoration.
Virtualized Browser: It launches the browser in a Bitdefender-provided environment, isolating it from the operating system. This is done to prevent browser-based e-threats from exploiting browser vulnerabilities to gain control of the entire system.
Improved: Flexible Interface: Drag and drop modules to get quick access to the actions you perform most often directly from the main window.
Improved: Streamlined Installation: Bitdefender 2012 easily installs with just a few clicks, and in half the time required by the previous version.
