Cyren vs. Bitdefender: Keeping Up the Standards for Security

We only want to offer our customers premium security. So when the time to make a change came, we chose an award-winning solution that could help us raise the bar. 

Bitdefender AntiSpam

Bitdefender AntiSpam uses a combination of advanced antispam filtering and predictive technologies to effectively identify spam messages in any language. It reduces false positives and safeguards against phishing attacks and malicious links found in email attachments. 

It’s also the sole antispam solution to attain VBSpam certification in all 59 Virus Bulletin spam tests conducted to date. In the most recent 22 consecutive VBSpam tests, Bitdefender achieved an outstanding average spam detection rate exceeding 99.9%, with zero instances of false positives.

Bitdefender AntiMalware

Bitdefender AntiMalware uses a diverse range of technologies and detection techniques to deliver unparalleled accuracy and performance in identifying known and unknown threats, particularly those that exploit zero-day vulnerabilities. Its core engine incorporates various components and cutting-edge technologies such as file format analyzers and parsers, un-archivers and archivers, executable unpackers, emulation, heuristics-based detection, generic detection, signature-based detection, machine-learning algorithms, and cloud-based detection. These comprehensive elements work synergistically to provide robust protection against malware.
