The Windows operating system comes with the Windows Defender protection, but Microsoft recommends the PC administrators to opt for premium security solutions. One Google search does solve the problem to an extent, but finding an ideal protection solution over an advertised one is the challenging part. I want to bring forth a security program that brought many PCs backs to their original state and protected them through any kind of attacks.

What is Bitdefender Antivirus Plus 2020?

Bitdefender is touted as the best antivirus for Windows by millions of PC administrators, and online security solution award juries. It is a Romanian based software security company and they brought many packages to prevent digital attackers from accessing your computers. The Antivirus Plus 2020 protection package designed for the home PCs and small businesses running Windows OS. Allow me to introduce the number of features that will keep the modern invaders from accessing the machine.

1. Ransomware Protection

Ransomware came out of the blue and attacked millions of computers around the world in the pursuit of extracting money from unsuspecting victims. The advanced modern threat forced business people to pay the ransom to unlock the PC and remove the virus permanently from their systems. Fortunately, online security solutions added a special security protocol to prevent this from happening again, and the latest version of Antivirus Plus 2020 has it.

2. Safe Online Banking

Bitdefender‘s dedicated browser protects banking customers from phishing and invasion. There are browser extensions available for the Chrome and Firefox browsers, and the inbuilt protection tool informs the users about any dangerous or sketchy sites. You can browse the internet and make online payments using the dedicated browser without worrying about loopholes. I would strictly use the browser for internet banking purposes only because it doesn’t disable trackers led by multi-billion dollar companies like Google, YouTube, Facebook, etc.

3. Firewall & Advanced Threat Defense

Windows Firewall is a powerful defense line for Microsoft operating system customers, but it has gotten weaker with time. Unfortunately, Microsoft cannot prevent advanced threats from getting into your PC due to its limitations. The Firewall protects the computer from external programs gaining access to the system and works as an advanced protection layer.

The “Threat Defense” feature will keep the installed programs or while installing the program from making changes to the system. Overall, the combination of Firewall and Threat Defense will keep the system protected throughout the day.

3. VPN (Virtual Private Network)

VPN is the strongest element for digital consumers who don’t want to be tracked back. Unfortunately, the term “privacy” is merely a myth in a modern generation because of free services such as Google, Facebook, etc. However, you can keep yourself anonymous while browsing the internet by using VPN and nobody can track the original IP address. They also offers premium VPN services in the Antivirus Plus 2020 package that keep protecting the customer’s identity.

4. System Performance

I take CPU + RAM resource consumption into account because I don’t want my security program to slow down my computer. The security software protection layers always run in the background and they do need a certain amount of CPU + RAM resources to function normally, but how much?

I installed the latest Antivirus Plus 2020 on a Windows 10 PC and it is running in the background for a while now; you can check out the snapshot below for statistics.

I brought the exact numbers for the customers to understand how powerful the computer needs to run this program smoothly. The Windows 10 machine should provide 400MB RAM in total and 2% CPU resources to keep it running at maximum capacity. I want to inform the readers that the numbers I mentioned are the maximum usage and the minimum requirements go below 300MB RAM and 1% CPU resources.

5. Real-time Protection

The real-time protection keeps all threat detection tools enabled in the background, and nothing will go through its radar. No need to opt for anti-malware solutions because this security software’s got it covered for you. The program designed to prevent the system from exploits and spyware and keep the machine cleaner than ever. None of the worms, Trojans and other threats can go pass through the real-time protection feature.

Bottom Line

Bitdefender is awarded the best antivirus for Windows 10 PC and consumes lesser CPU + RAM resources. Currently, the Antivirus Plus 2020 is available for $29.99 for one device, and it is an affordable price for strong protection of your computer.
