Bitdefender flagship product famously known as Total Security has been recently updated to 2016 edition. Like the previous editions, this year also Bitdefender has stuck with the dark tiled interface that was made for Windows 8 in mind. However, there are some changes to the interface, such as sizes of the tiles and listing order of the modules. The main interface now features a large Bitdefender Central tile, which is also a new feature. Bitdefender Central has been introduced so that users can manage all their personal devices from the web interface. This may include Bitdefender installed on other windows systems, mobile devices (Android) or Mac OS X systems. Bitdefender central only works if the personal devices are logged in to the same Bitdefender account.
Ransomware protection is another new feature that has been added to the anti-malware engine. Ransomware is one of the fastest growing types of threats that is being used by cyber criminals to encrypt personal data of the victim, then typically asking for ransom in digital currencies to get the key. Bitdefender blocks such threats by analyzing their behavior.
In addition to these features, Bitdefender has improved the existing modules of the suit for better protection and stability in Windows 10. Total Security includes the following security and privacy tools:
- Antivirus and antimalware
- Ransomware protection
- Two-way firewall
- Parental Control
- Secure Browsing. Privacy protection
- File encryption and shredder
- Work, movies and game profiles
- PC Tune-Up. One click optimizer and startup optimizer
