Bitdefender Internet Security 2020 is the company's mainstream security suite, offering antivirus, firewall, browsing protection, parental controls, antispam, ransomware protection, password management and more.

The well-designed interface opens with a simple view of your security status, and common actions like "Quick Scan" or "Vulnerability Scan" are only one click away.

If you need more, clicking "View Modules" gives you speedy access to scan types and all the key program settings.

Bitdefender includes powerful ransomware protection in the form of a new Ransomware Remediation module. The suite can now store your most important files in special folders which trusted applications will be able to access as usual-- but everything else gets firmly locked out.

Bitdefender 2019 included the new Security Advisor, a one-click tool which quickly checks all available wireless networks and highlights any security vulnerabilities.

Elsewhere, the firewall and parental controls have been improved.

What's new in 2020?

- Introduces browser anti-tracking for both Windows and Mac OS
- Upgraded malware detection engines to stop the newest variants of those spreading threats
- Introduces the option to upgrade to the new Parental Control Premium
- New “Detection of Cyberbullying and Online Predators” feature, available in English-speaking countries, uses AI algorithms to scan online conversations for potential bullying, inappropriate photo requests or exchanges, meeting invites from strangers and disclosure of personal information like a home address or credit card details

Verdict

Its core security features are largely unchanged, but Bitdefender Internet Security 2020 remains a solid and reliable suite with some of the best detection rates around.
