Network safety is more important now than it has ever been. In the last year alone, I have experienced more issues with spyware and hackers and security threats, than in the entire 15+ years I have been online!
I can tell you firsthand that not being protected, or not being FULLY protected, is taking a huge risk. Not just with your online business (as some of you have seen with mine) but also with your personal data.
BitDefender's 2013 version has an increased focus on Safebox, Device Anti-Theft, and Parental Control. And also on secure and convenient management of your services with the new MyBitdefender.
The improved user-friendly dashboard allows you to view and even control installed applications and mobile devices:
Some of the newer features of BitDefender Total Security 2013 include:
BitDefender Safepay™ is a notable new feature. It's a proprietary secure browser that keeps your online transactions and home banking apps safe from tampering attempts. Considering how many online purchases I make, and that I've had my debit card compromised already in the past (to the tune of over $8,000 before I caught it!), this feature is of particular interest to me.
This is a feature you'll love! Most anti-virus and computer protection software is so insanely annoying that you'd almost rather be at risk than deal with the constant pop-ups and interruptions. BitDefender runs on autopilot, and operates on its own, without all of those hassles - so you can actually enjoy your time on the computer and still feel safe.
Did you know that BitDefender can also track lost or stolen devices? Very cool feature! Particuarly for those of us that like to work mobile.
Social Media Network Protection
BitDefender also filters the links on your social media channels, like Facebook and Twitter, and monitors your privacy settings on social networks as well. Given the popularity of social sites (and how much we use them!) this is a particularly nice feature. Especially given how the privacy settings on some of those sites are constantly changing on us...
Parental Control Options
Not only will BitDefender block inappropriate content, it also has the ability to restrict web access altogether during certain hours of the day. And it will allow you to remotely monitor online activity - so you can see what your children are viewing and which websites they are visiting, and their activity on those pages... yes, even on Facebook!
