Bitdefender’s new 2019 consumer security product line includes Network Threat Prevention, providing in-depth monitoring of systems, searching for avenues of attack to prevent exploitation of vulnerabilities.

Network Threat Prevention also detects, and blocks brute-force attempts, prevents devices from being compromised in botnet attacks and keeps sensitive information from unencrypted web forms.

The Bitdefender 2019 consumer security product line’s Ransomware Remediation technology offer critical defence against the rapid spread of online crime. This new technology defends users against zero-day ransomware attacks – it identifies ransomware-behaviour and automatically backs up and restores files, rendering the encryption from ransomware useless.

“Bitdefender has been at the forefront of the online security industry since its inception, taking big strides forward with each new generation of products,” says Bitdefender’s vice-president: consumer solutions, Ciprian Istrate. “With our latest consumer line, we are taking protection to new levels. We’re protecting people’s daily online lives using technology that only a short while ago was a security strategist’s seemingly impossible dream.

“With the 2019 line, Bitdefender adopts a more pro-active role as your Security Advisor, a completely new approach to Autopilot technology that evolves from the silent partner that takes care of things to a security advisor that helps users discover how they can benefit from additional security features depending on their specific needs”, he adds.

Bitdefender 2019 also brings major advances to its Advanced Threat Defense, which closely monitors active apps for suspicious behaviour, ready to take instant action to prevent infection. Improvements in Web Attack Prevention, Bitdefender’s web filtering technology, ensures users never land on a harmful website; it informs users whether search results are safe before they click on the link.

Advanced Anti-Phishing technology sniffs and blocks websites that masquerade as a legitimate site to steal passwords or credit card numbers, Anti-Fraud warns users of websites that might want to scam them. Bitdefender Safe Files prevents unauthorised changes to users’ most important files.
