Bitdefender Advanced Threat Defense is an innovative proactive detection technology that uses advanced heuristic methods to detect ransomware and other new threats in real time.
Advanced Threat Defense continuously monitors the apps running on the device, looking for threat-like actions. Each of these actions is scored and an overall score is computed for each process. Advanced Threat Defense shares intelligence with Bitdefender’s Global Protective Network to block even the newest ransomware and exploits.
As a safety measure you will be notified each time threats and potentially malicious processes are detected and blocked.
To turn on or off Advanced Threat Defense:
1. Click Protection on the navigation menu on the Bitdefender interface.
2. In the ADVANCED THREAT DEFENSE pane, click Open.
3. Go to the Settings window and click switch next to Bitdefender Advanced Threat Defense.
NOTE: To keep your system protected from ransomware and other threats, we recommend you to disable Advanced Threat Defense for as little time as possible.
