Bitdefender has the best malware detection rate of all AV comparison sites and is able to run quickly without impacting system performance. It provides additional subscription benefits like machine security and removal of ransomware dependent on the plan you select.

Its antivirus suite combines traditional signature-based scans and machine learning to deliver some the highest detection rates in its kind. It also includes a fantastic web security collection, a speedy VPN and full tune-up tools for programs, an encrypted browser and a many useful privacy safeguards to ensure your data is secure. In my tests, the spam filter of Bitdefender did not flag more than 1 percent of legitimate emails and its ransomware protection was also a solid defense.

A vulnerability scan is yet another feature that sets Bitdefender Threat Scanner apart from its rivals. It looks for weak passwords as well as outdated drives, software and Windows vulnerabilities that could be exploited. The feature can be run manually or scheduled to run and takes around 5 minutes. It’s a significant improvement over competitors that normally take between 30 and 60 minutes to perform the same task.
