This comparison makes no sense. Bitdefender Free is a lightweight AV, with good signatures and a decent behavior blocker. McAfee is a full suite with much more than that.
i can get mcafee internet security free in a giveaway, but bitdefender free + comodo firewall + traffic light + emsisoft browser security web filters may have better detection rates.And what is the point to compare security suite vs free product?
Smart move Brie.i can get mcafee internet security free in a giveaway, but bitdefender free + comodo firewall + traffic light + emsisoft browser security web filters may have better detection rates.
Thank you for your input.
That's one of the reasons I'm using Windows Defender - while arguably not the strongest free AV, it's for sure the less annoying one and the only one who doesn't have a marketing reason behind it.Only people who know can make a balanced suite with free programs.
And what is the point to compare the security suite with the free product?
Simple. Ask Bitdefender to give you Bitdender Secuirity and they will tell you to buy.
The free products are delivered so that after the user can buy the other payment solutions, only marketing. Also many free products do not update as often as the payment.
I'm pretty sure McAfee has integrated cloud protection into their suite, which has made it much lighter and have a better detection rate.Mc afee relies on signatures ..that's it ! It is not recommended suite in my opinion
BD Free is much better, reliable , stronger than Mc Afee.
Real protect doesn't work, if a signature is not available then system is hijacked .
Mc Afee is a poisonous malware in my opinion..installing it = Infecting the system for Free.
Rest left to You
