BitDefender Unveils Next Generation Security Products
FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. √ August 28, 2006√ BitDefender╝, an award-winning provider of Internet security and antivirus solutions, today announced the launch of version 10 of its line of solutions for consumers and small businesses. Employing BitDefender▓s new patent pending B-HAVE (Behavioral Heuristic Analyzer in Virtual Environments) technology, version 10 of BitDefender▓s Internet Security, Antivirus Plus, and Antivirus security solutions offer consumers and small to mid-sized businesses (SMBs) the industry▓s strongest heuristics-based technology for proactively monitoring and detecting today▓s most malicious viruses, spyware, spam and phishing activity.
⌠A study recently published by a leading consumer review publication found in the past two years, 29% of household computer users were hit by viruses, spyware or phishing scams, causing serious and often costly computer problems. What▓s more surprising is that a large percentage of the users surveyed had not deployed security software to protect their systems against these types of attacks,■ commented Nicolae Simon, BitDefender product marketing manager. ⌠These statistics show that there is an increasing need for consumers and businesses to integrate security software solutions which make use of the most advanced forms of protection. By basing our latest solutions on the proven capabilities of B-HAVE, and by adding new features to make our software easier to use and far more flexible, BitDefender continues to raise the security market▓s industry standard.■
New Anti-Rootkit Technology
Additionally, all of the solutions will include an anti-rootkit module for detecting and removing rootkits (malicious programs designed to control victim computers while staying hidden.) Rootkits have quickly become one of the biggest security threats and challenges for consumers due to their extremely stealthy nature and the lack of anti-rootkit tools in most major security products. With BitDefender 10 solutions, consumers and SMBs can now have a greater level of comfort knowing their PCs are free of rootkits.
Two Years/Two PCs for the Price of One Promotion
To celebrate the release of version 10, BitDefender is offering two years of protection for two PCs≈all at the price of one to customers in North America who purchase before January 1, 2007. Unlike complicated rebate promotions, customers simply need to purchase any version 10 solution from a retail store or via the BitDefender website and they will automatically receive the two-year/two-PC subscription.
