Free browser based on-line scanner

BitDefender UK : 03 June, 2009  (New Product)
Anti-virus and spyware tool from BitDefender now offers on-demand access through web browser, is available free and works with other PC installed security software
Incorporating BitDefender's industry-leading scanning engines, the enhanced version of the online scanner is a free, on-demand antivirus and antispyware tool that shows users the security status of their PCs and detects and disinfects viruses and spyware files. Accessible directly from the browser and easy to deploy, BitDefender Online Scanner will scan and automatically clean the system memory, all files and drive boot sectors.

BitDefender Online Scanner can be used without having to uninstall the existing data security product. Other benefits include:

* Superior proactive detection - The scanner builds on BitDefender technology that is able to detect new and unknown viruses for which signatures have not yet been released.
* Virus and spyware cleaning ­- Powerful scan engines detect and remove all viruses and spyware.
* Always up-to-date - Virus signatures are updated automatically each time the product is launched.
* Effective right away - The scanner is configured to automatically clean all infected files.
* Convenient - The scanner double checks the security status of the PC even if the user already has an antivirus program installed.

The online scanner is based on the same technology as the highly regarded BitDefender Antivirus 2009. The product is compatible with Microsoft Internet Explorer 6 or higher under Windows XP or Vista, and provides not only detection but also disinfection from viruses and spyware. The online scanner is available to everyone who visits the BitDefender website and complements any antivirus product already on the user's system.

Bogdan Dumitru, BitDefender's CTO explains, "BitDefender Online Scanner is one of our most popular tools with over 500,000 users a month and more than six million a year. The benefits of BitDefender Online Scanner are quite clear; it's easy to deploy directly from the browser, there's no need to uninstall other security products, and best of all it's free. Many of today's anti-malware programs can't keep up with the speed and volume with which new malware is being released. BitDefender Online Scanner gives users the ability to test and verify the effectiveness of their anti-malware solution using the industry's leading proactive anti-malware technology free-of-charge."
