Bitdefender Internet Security
How are TSA Scores determined?
The Software Authority strives to be different! Our results are based on factual data and you will never see a non-certified product that you never heard of being rated highly for the sole purpose of pushing sales like we often see on other review sites.
With increasing computer processor speeds being able to handle heavy workloads and improving performance significantly, TSA Scores are focused more on how well a security product protects your system from malware, viruses, and threats as opposed to how much system impact does this security product have. Reality is, if you obtain a nasty Ransomware virus as an example, does having a product that uses limited computer resources matter if you can no longer access your computer?
The TSA Score is determined by analyzing the latest review data from multiple independent testing laboratories, other reputable third party review sites and our many years of experience in the security software industry. The results from these sources are then inputted into a proprietary formula that determines the final TSA Score.

When scanning takes place in the cloud there is virtually zero impact on your local resources, which means your system’s speed and performance remain unaffected. And your files always remain completely private: we only scan data signatures, not the actual contents of your files — which are never uploaded or stored in the cloud.
Game, Movie and Work Modes
Bitdefender Internet Security detects when you play, work or watch a movie, so it knows not to bother you with unnecessary requests. This way you can focus on what’s important. Depending on what you choose to do on your computer, Bitdefender Internet Security temporarily halts pop-ups, adjusts visual settings and pauses unimportant background activities to allow you to enjoy your device to the max.
This useful, intelligent feature saves battery life for laptops and tablets by temporarily tweaking system settings such as display, system cooling, system updates or Bluetooth connectivity.
Store your passwords, credit card information and other sensitive data in a secure vault for easy access whenever you need them. Password Manager gives you the option to autofill online forms and can even recommend secure passwords.
Use this tool when you wish to delete a file for good and leave no traces that it ever existed on your PC.
It’s pure freedom: just turn Autopilot on, and it will run all your cyber-security by itself, hassle-free. Without pop-ups, dialog boxes or hundreds of options to go through, you’ll be able to focus on your work and on having fun.
