Bitdefender Unveils Newly Architected Antivirus Free for Windows

This week Bitdefender released a brand new, re-architected free antivirus product -- Bitdefender Antivirus Free for Windows. The new version offers enhanced features, functionality, and improved user experience in comparison to the previous free version, including, malware protection, and custom scanning scheduling options. Additionally, the new free version offers email protection for Outlook and Thunderbird, providing an extra layer of protection against malware. There is also an exploit detection feature that informs users if they are vulnerable or at higher risk for compromise.

In December 2021, Bitdefender announced the end-of-life for its previous free antivirus solution that resided on a legacy technology platform. The new Bitdefender Antivirus Free for Windows has been re-engineered from the ground up to detect and block the latest threats targeting today’s modern environments.

In a recent survey of 10,000 consumers across the globe, Bitdefender found that the majority of consumers are highly exposed to threats. When analyzing all respondent behaviors, from password reuse, to the number of online accounts and services, to sharing of account details and lack of security services on their devices, just 11 percent of respondents could be described as “secure” in terms of their cybersecurity practices.

“The attack surface continues to grow with an increasing number of devices used by consumers at home and on the go that need basic protection,” said Ciprian Istrate, vice president, Bitdefender Consumer Solutions. “We completely redesigned Bitdefender Antivirus Free for Windows to provide a powerful first line of defense against modern threats that is also intuitive and easy to use. While our new free version doesn’t include many important features for complete security protection, it helps stop attacks at the door while giving users a good way to test out Bitdefender technology finding out first hand why we continuously lead independent tests for threat detection.”
