In this video, we compare Bitdefender with 3 antivirus products that use it! (GDATA, Emsisoft and Vipre).
The goal is to see if there are differences in detection and especially differences in behavioral blocking.

In terms of detection, it is very similar, even if Vipre has left 16 malwares in detection. The others are close.

On the other hand, there is a difference in proactive protection. Even if Bitdefender did not let anything through, the others left traces (Gdata and Vipre) and even an infected machine for Emsisoft!

Bitdefender is way above these partners, but they also do a good job.

Nice one (y)The result matched my expectation.
BTW, why there was no KVRT scan for G-Data?
Also FYI, Bitdefender also need system restart sometimes for cleaning up threats completely, but it doesn't tell the user always. It only asks to restart if it thinks it's urgent.

Hello all!

Seems like with latest beta, FS changed from Bitdefender to Avira engines.
Detection names speak for themselves:
View attachment 200795

Old engine was Aquarius (with Bitdefender signatures), new one is named Capricorn (with Avira signatures).

Quoting F-Secure team member



What do you think about such switch? One instant change I saw is smaller size of signature's folder (couple of hundred of megabytes).

Wow they dropped the Kaspersky engine. Ok then

Emsisoft and Gdata have never been on Kaspersky...
Gdata used to use Avast and Bitdefender, now they have their engine (CloseGap) and Bitdefender.

Emsisoft used to use Ikarus and their engine. Now they still have their engine, but they use Bitdefender.
