More Scan per Dollar
BitDefender announced today the launch of upgraded BitDefender Standard and Professional Plus desktop security programs, which will have antispyware capabilities included by default in the new version (designated 9.5).
"This is much more than an incremental upgrade. As same-generation upgrades are offered for free by BitDefender, the new features are putting BitDefender Standard and Professional Plus in a class of their own in terms of functionality/price" declared Nicolae Simon, BitDefender Product Marketing Manager.
The BitDefender antispyware shield scans for (and blocks) spyware threats in real time by checking accessed files (including those received via web, mail and P2P transfers), to keep users' systems free of spyware annoyances. An in-depth on-demand system scanner which checks for malicious cookies, registry entries, processes and applications is included.
BitDefender antispyware is already certified by Checkmark to be 100% effective against a list of known spyware; the antivirus engines are also Checkmark-certified and hold VB100%, ICSA and TuV certifications for detection and cleaning rates.
The new product versions will be distributed to existing users via the regular update process, and are available for trial or sale at BitDefender websites and partners; pricing is unchanged with respect to the previous versions.
