Bitdefender Internet Security 2013 Review

Bitdefender Internet Security 2013 Review

For many people, the test of an Internet security system is based on how many known viruses/trojans/worms/etc the software knows about. Other factors that are important to some people is the speed of performance on your machine. Some complain about how it adds about 4 seconds to your load-up.


So, let me get this right. You would rather have a machine that boots up 4 seconds faster instead of knowing that your passwords and credit card information is secure? If you’re one of those people, you deserved to get hacked.

But chances are, if you are using Bitdefender Internet Security 2013, you won’t have these issues.

I’ve been using Kaspersky for quite some time now but after using this software on my laptop, I think my mind has been changed.

I know that software protecting your computer needs to get your attention from time to time, but with Kaspersky, it happens everytime I turn on my PC. Instead, it needs to work the way the folks at Bitdefender Antivirus are doing things.

You install the software, make a few decisions, and then the software takes care of the rest. The best part is, after you perform this one time activity, it lets you get back to why you were on your machine in the first place – watch movies, play games or simply enjoy your PC without it slowing down.

Of all these features, the best one is probably where the software will automatically open any banking or e-commerce sites in a separate secure browser. I’ve had my information stolen a few times in the past, and believe me, this one feature alone makes it worth the investment. You might not think much of it now, but once you get your identity stolen or some script kiddie withdraws 3k from your bank account to buy the latest hot-rodded PC from Alienware, you come to value this protection.

One of the easiest ways hackers get your information is through social engineering. If you don’t know what this is, take the time to learn about the common ways this technique is deployed. Simply put, social engineering is tricking your way past humans to get personal information.

Think of it as someone being able to charm their way to your bank account. Most internet security software providers don’t spend time on this element, but Bitdefender actually pays attention by using behavior-based detection. So if they know you typically review a few sites before you make a purchase, not following that pattern could trigger some alerts.

Safe Social Networking – Yes you know who your real friends are. But are their computers proctected? Want to take the chance of getting infected from some erroneous wall post on Facebook or some shortened link via Twitter?

Point is, in today’s always connected world, taking the time and small investment to protect your online experience is something we should all take the time to make sure it’s done right. Bitdefender has stepped up to the plate to become a leader in protecting your online data.

    I’d like a free copy, just to see how it works.

    How do I use the web? I browse Factpile, the ‘topia, research for school, work on the FP Wiki, but I don’t use social media like Facebook or Twitter very often.

    I’m using a combo of Security Essentials and ZoneAlarm. So far it has worked wonderfully for me.

    I don’t visit questionable websites, but I do like to feel secure if ever I end up visiting one.

    While allot of my web use is recreational, I have been using it recently for more important things like getting car insurance and handling my banking account online, so it would be nice if I could know for sure that nobody can hack my computer and get anything like my bank account number or social security number. So yea, I’d appreciate a free copy.

    Thanks for the review. Like you, I’ve used Kaspersky over the past few years. I’ve heard good things about Bitdefender and would love to try it out. I’m frequently managing online banking accounts and purchasing items on ecommerce sites. If you have a copy left, I’d appreciate getting to use Bitdefender.
