Bitdefender has launched the free 60-Second Virus Scanner desktop app, adding a layer of elite cloud-based protection to PCs worldwide in an all-out assault on malware. Being a cloud-based solution it’s always up to date and has no impact on the system.
The Bitdefender 60-Second Virus Scanner offers all PC users the confidence of knowing their system is checked by proactive, scanning technology that will pinpoint active threats. 60-Second Virus Scanner is available for free, any time at the click of a desktop icon. It is also a Windows 8 Certified App, and will be listed on Windows Store from this month.
“With the 60-Second Virus Scanner, we aim to bring our top-of-the-line technology to as many PC users around the world as possible,” said Catalin Cosoi, Chief Security Strategist at Bitdefender. “We are convinced our free technology will impress PC users with its efficiency and silence. We expect a lot of people who use the scanner to find out that their existing antivirus solution is not catching everything it should.”
The Bitdefender 60-Second Virus scanner works in conjunction with any antivirus software, allowing PC users to double-check whether their existing security software is effective. The 60-Second Virus Scanner works silently, guarding systems in the background while users work or play, and sending real-time alerts as a threat appears.
