Bitdefender 2017 adds Wi-Fi and ransomware protection

The security software's latest version includes a Wi-Fi scanner that identifies vulnerabilities, special anti-ransomware folders, and more.

Bitdefender has unveiled its latest home office range of security software, including Bitdefender Antivirus Plus 2017, Bitdefender Internet Security 2017 and Bitdefender Total Security Multi-Device 2017.

New features in all three products include the Wi-Fi Security Advisor, a one-click tool which lists local wireless networks and quickly highlights any vulnerabilities.

Enhanced ransomware protection enables you to store your most valuable files in special folders, only accessible to trusted applications.

Bitdefender Internet Security and Bitdefender Total Security Multi-Device also offer parental controls and a firewall, both of which have been improved in the latest version.

In addition, the Multi-Device suite’s anti-theft tools include a new Bitdefender Central option to remotely take photos from any of your Windows or Android devices, helping you track them down.

While it’s not a major upgrade, Bitdefender’s core engine remains a solid and reliable product with among the best detection rates around.

You can download 30-day trials or purchase the full versions of Bitdefender Antivirus Plus 2017 ($69.99), Bitdefender Internet Security 2017 ($94.99) and Bitdefender Total Security Multi-Device 2017 ($119.99). All require Windows 7 and later.

There’s also a Mac version that includes Time Machine Protection that blocks unauthorised access to your backups, ensuring you can recover your system from any attack.
