Share this article:

BitDefender has launched a free tool to provide information on the speed, stability and security of Windows machines.

Called the BitDefender Security Scan, it will scan an endpoint and show a detailed report on the status of any security threats and registry errors. The company claimed that it will run alongside any other security solutions installed, providing a complementary layer of protection and troubleshooter to boost performance.

It said that the product uses its QuickScan tool, which takes advantage of cloud-based technology to detect active malware in less than a minute and it will recommend the best solution to secure the PC from any threats.

Bogdan Dumitru, BitDefender chief technology officer, said: “We developed BitDefender Security Scan knowing that people want the minimum of hassle in staying safe online and keeping their PC running smoothly.

“With the use of our cloud malware scanning technology and the ability to advise on how to improve computer performance, we are confident that Security Scan will be a really useful product for many users.”
