Bitdefender 2016 brings new ransomware protection

Bitdefender Labs has unveiled its 2016 consumer line, including Bitdefender Antivirus Plus 2016, Bitdefender Internet Security 2016 and Bitdefender Total Security 2016.

New ransomware protection prevents untrusted applications from tampering with your personal documents, while enhanced behavioural monitoring looks for any ransomware-like activities.

Bitdefender’s engine has been extended with “machine learning-based technologies”, enabling it to detect even brand new threats faster than ever.

The new firewall delivers better performance, and there are enhancements for the password manager, parental controls, file encryption and antitheft tools.

Bitdefender Internet Security 2016

Bitdefender’s interface hasn’t changed much this time around

All three packages also have a strong set of core features, including phishing protection; vulnerability detection; a USB immunizer; Rescue Mode, a secure and isolated environment, outside of Windows, to remove even the most stubborn threats; and a desktop widget for quick scans and to monitor your security status.

It’s not yet clear how the update will affect Bitdefender’s accuracy, but then that’s already very highly rated by independent testing labs, with the previous engine scoring a second place in AV-Comparatives’ latest Real-World Protection tests.

30 day trial builds of Bitdefender Antivirus Plus 2016, Bitdefender Internet Security 2016 and Bitdefender Total Security 2016 are available now for Windows 7 and later.
