Bitdefender and Kaspersky are two top-of-the-line security programs that earn high marks from users for their cutting-edge technology, minimal impact on performance, and a simple design. Both offer a robust defense against ransomware, network threats fraud, phishing and much more. Bitdefender’s suite of products includes an «rescue environment» that allows you to reboot your PC into a recovery disk to clean the system of any infection. It also provides a limited virtual network (VPN) as well as a password manager, while Kaspersky requires you to upgrade.

Both offer excellent customer service, with assistance available via email, telephone or online chat. Kaspersky is slightly faster at answering questions, whereas Bitdefender takes a little longer.

Overall, both programs perform well in independent tests from A-Comparatives and the AV-Test with results which are often difficult to differentiate. Both have excellent malware detection and have very low false-positive rate. Kaspersky’s protection engine is a bit more tuned to distinguish between malicious and legitimate software. It’s also more sensitive to memory usage, which means it could detect programs that aren’t actually running on your system.

Bitdefender’s features are more extensive than Kaspersky’s and its user interface is a lot easier to navigate. For example, Bitdefender’s security dashboard shows a status bar that lets you begin a search immediately, whereas Kaspersky requires you to scroll through several screens before you can start. It also offers a number of customizable settings in its firewall, such as the option to set the rules for connection per application and close the gaps hackers are trying to exploit to gain access to your system.
