Bitdefender has unveiled its 2017 consumer security range, including Bitdefender Antivirus Plus 2017 ($39.99-), Bitdefender Internet Security 2017 ($59.99-) and Bitdefender Total Security Multi-Device 2017 ($89.99-).
New features include the Wifi Security Scanner, a one-click tool which lists local wireless networks and quickly highlights any vulnerabilities.
Enhanced ransomware protection enables storing your most valuable files in special folders, only accessible to trusted applications.
Time Machine Protection for Macs blocks unauthorised access to your backups, ensuring you can recover your system from any attack.
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.
Bitdefender also reports enhanced parental controls, a smarter firewall, and “an extra-light impact on users’ computers”.
There’s nothing too surprising about any of this and it’s hard to see the 2017 range winning over many new users, but the core engine remains a solid and reliable product with some of the best detection rates around.
