BitDefender 2008 - More Safe With BitDefender Antivirus 2008 and Internet Security 2008 - All in One

BitDefender has launched BitDefender 2008 on 23 August 2007. This is a new way of internet security solutions providing proactive protection from viruses, spyware, spam, and other common Internet threats.

The BitDefender 2008 product line is designed to protect a wide variety of computer usage scenarios. It's ranging from individual Personal Computer users and multi-PC families to SOHO businesses. The BitDefender 2008 now includes BitDefender Antivirus 2008, Internet Security 2008 and Total Security 2008,


New! Gamer Mode
The new Gamer Mode temporarily modifies the protection settings so as to minimize their impact on gaming performance while maintaining a safe and fun gaming experience.

New! Web Anti-Phishing
Protects against phishing attacks by filtering all accessed web pages for fraud attempts. When a web site is detected as Phishing, the user is notified and asked whether it should be displayed or not.

New! User Interface
The new interface provides all users with information on the protection status of the system and the possibility to fix security issues quickly. A separate section contains further protection settings to be configured by advanced users.

Improved! Firewall Protection
The firewall network profile system has been redesigned to lower the number of alerts and pop-ups that require the user’s attention. The product detects your computer’s network configurations and and it sets the appropriate security policy.

New! Wi-Fi Management
Helps prevent unauthorized access to the Wi-Fi internet connection by notifying the user about computers that log in to the network.

Improved! Protection from Spam Email
Responds faster to new spamming techniques with new adaptive engines. The main advantage is that new spam is detected and blocked based on the similarities (oftentimes very subtle) between the new messages received and the ones the engines were trained on.

New! Data Backup
Safeguards your data by creating backup copies to local and removable drives, CD-R/RW or DVD-R/RW. The backup process is automatic and transparent because it can be performed based on a previously set schedule. Moreover, only new or changed files will be gradually added to the backup location.

New! PC Tune-up
Improves PC operation by removing unnecessary files and registry entries. The registry cleaner scans for orphaned registry keys (keys whose corresponding file does not exist anymore). The duplicate finder checks for duplicate files and prompts the user to decide what action to be taken on them.

New! Trace Clean-up
Simply deleting files will not make them disappear from the hard disk. BitDefender now offers a simple way to completely erase files and "traces" of files from the disk to prevent unauthorized recovery.

BitDefender Antivirus 2008 has more benefits includes:
• A Real time antivirus protection with automatic updates
• System Proactive protection
• Anti rootkit protection – detecting and removing the newest breed of hidden threats
• Privacy protection – reducing the risk of identity theft by preventing personal information leaks via e-mail or web
• Anti-spyware protection – monitoring and preventing spyware threats in real-time

“BitDefender 2008 provides home and SMB users with an unmatched level of protection that defends against tomorrow’s threats today,” said Bogdan Dumitru, BitDefender CTO. “As hackers and spammers rapidly change their tactics, our patent-pending B-HAVE heuristics technology provides users with the highest levels of proactive protection from zero-day and unknown malware threats. The new capabilities offered in BitDefender 2008 – including 64-bit support and the Gamer Mode – also demonstrate BitDefender’s ongoing commitment to evolve its offerings to meet the needs of today’s latest applications.”
