Hardly anyone ever sees the classic “Virus” now days. Spyware and Trojans are way bigger threat today. Therefore, criteria’s by which antivirus software and security suites should be measured have also been changed. Some while ago, we developed the point of view about the word Antivirus in general, when we say Antivirus we refer to a software that protects PC from all kinds of threats, against Virus, Spyware, rootkits and Adware, Trojans and all the other malware as well as Identity Theft and Phishing. Modern Antivirus should be able to handle all the threats listed above.
Before answering the question what is the best Antivirus for 2011, there is a question, which of these two should we use; Standalone Antivirus or the whole Security Suite. 5-6 years ago definition of Security Suite was different than it is today. Back then, when software included firewall, people used to refer it as Security Suite, but that has changed now. Modern Security Suites include far more than firewalls: full Security Suites have many features such as Parental Control, Site Adviser, Spam Protection and email Protection, Identity Theft protection, Anti Spyware and many other features, also some Security Suites include utilities such as personal data encryption, data shredders, back-up utilities and rescue disks. So when it’s about choosing between Security Suites and Standalone Antivirus, it’s really up to you, to make a choice, first of all you need to consider which of those features you may find useful.
Competition between Antivirus vendors largely bitdefender depends on which Antivirus includes more features for standalone product.
