Recommendation: Kaspersky vs Bitdefender

Postby JTGoose » Sun Nov 18, 2012 8:42 am

Hello Forum,

I just built two new PCs and normally I would go with free anti virus and security software or none at all. But this time around I have decided to look at buying a total internet security suite.

Any thoughts of suggestions between Kaspersky and Bitdefender?

Thanks

Lots of reviews and comparisons can be found with a search on Google.. such as this one.
Having no anti-virus or Firewall is not a good idea! Your system could be hijacked easily, and be a source of viral spreads. Having a 'free' program is better than none, but a purchased program will provide the best protection.. as well as ability to scan malicious links and block them.
Myself, I prefer the AVG Security Suite. The price is right, also!

we have kapersky at my work, and i am always having to turn it off to download from a couple places (hp's website being the most common)... not sure if it has anything to do with the network setup there or not, but before they installed kapersky, i had no problems.

Add the URL to the "trusted sites" in the AV/Firewall program's control panel. By default, all Web sites are suspect of being malicious. Only those with a trusted security clearance are listed with the program's installation.

If a home setup, then the problem is with program configuration. But if a business setup, then security locks are in place to prevent downloaded files which may corrupt the server and system. File download is restricted to "company business" needs only.

In my point of view Kaspersky is better then other. Kaspersky is keep your PC fast. You can make more secure your PC through Kespersky. So, my vote for Kespersky.

I have used ZoneAlarm Internet Security Suite for years (retail version) and no problems.
It offers antivirus, firewall, antimalware, antispyware, etc., etc.
ZoneAlarm uses their own firewall, as they were the first firewall software company (I believe).
But, they use Kaspersky's antivirus software.
All the other included software in the Suite is produced by outside companies.

I have used SOPHOS Business Suite also.

I tried BitDefender (retail) and it was good.

I used COMODO Internet Security Premium (free) for many years on numerous computers without any problems.

I currently use COMODO Internet Security Pro, and have had no problems.

I also use Malwarebytes Antimalware Pro (retail) and SUPERAntiSpyware Pro (retail) without any problems.

Find one that works for you.
