Total Security 2011 includes antivirus, firewall and network management tools, file encryption, online back-up, and automatic hourly updates.

BitDefender’s unique Adaptive Design user interface allows consumers to customize the product to match their unique needs as well as create shortcuts to gaming or laptop modes, further optimizing how BitDefender interacts with the system and network.

“Security isn’t simply a matter of locking everything out; it’s a series of carefully managed choices, balancing the needs of users with the realities of the digital world. Connectivity has taken the personal computer into new realms—online gaming, e-learning, collaborative workgroups—launching a new era of personal security,” said Vince Hwang, BitDefender Global Director, Product Delivery. “BitDefender 2011 products address this significant change in the security landscape by continuing to provide superior protection from online attacks, while offering major improvements to system performance, and the ability for users to personalize their settings to best match their individual style and needs.”
