Bitdefender adds ransomware protection

By

Security software solutions provider Bitdefender has announced a number of features in its product line for 2017.

Among them is a cloud and machine learning algorithm to eliminate the threat of ransomware. Important files can be stored in special folders which are accessible only to trusted applications and prevent them from being encrypted by ransomware.

Wi-Fi Security Advisor is an additional feature that assesses the security of networks to which users on the move connect, and reports on any vulnerabilities present.

A third feature is Safepay with Wi-Fi Hotspot protection to secure online transactions and safeguard personal information.

A media release quoted Bitdefender consumer solution vice-president Ciprian Istrate as saying: "Bitdefender’s 2017 consumer line has a strategic advantage against other products, in that it was developed starting with the world’s best security software as a baseline.

"This year, we have made it even better, with a greater level of protection and an extra-light impact on users' computers."

Users can manage their devices from the Bitdefender central portal and take photos from Windows or Android devices in order to track lost or stolen devices.

There is Time Machine Protection for Macs to prevent access or alteration of backups, so that a system can be restored in the event of a ransomware attack.
