If you’re searching for the most effective antivirus solution with excellent malware detection rates, minimal impact on system performance and affordable pricing, then Bitdefender is the clear board room security software winner. It also has distinctive features, like shredders for your files, as well as a webcam/microphone blocker that blocks any suspicious requests.
Easy-to-use antivirus software is another crucial aspect. Both Avast and Bitdefender are fairly easy to navigate, but we found that Bitdefender was a little more difficult to navigate when it comes to running scans. It took us longer to find the settings we required to set up either a full scan or boot-time scanning was a bit complicated.
Bitdefender’s support is far superior to Avast. Its knowledge base and phone support are both extensive. Avast however, does limit its contact options to customers who pay and rely heavily on its forums and knowledge base.
