Bitdefender Digital Identity Protection Features

Steck1108 Defender of the month

Hello. The Bitdefender Total Security I'm currently using is working comfortably.

This time, the publicity of the license of the additional function was displayed.

It is a function of "Bitdefender Digital Identity Protection", and it seems to be a function to scan for leakage of personal information mainly on the cloud side, but since it is operated by installing a security device (UTM) on the personal computer, measures against information leakage are taken. going. ..

  I can't imagine the difference from the information leakage countermeasures of the UTM security function, but I personally think that it is an unnecessary license, but what about it?

    Hello @Steck1108,

    Bitdefender Total Security is a software that you can install on devices to protect your data, locally. The antivirus takes multiple measures to locally protect digital data from cybercriminals. It protects against threats that spread uncontrollably and damage your system or corrupt your files. It fends off Trojans that give hackers remote control over infected devices. Total Security also protects against ransomware, a type of malware that locks down your files and requests payment in exchange for a decryption key. Other local security features are: Firewall, Antispam, and a VPN (to name a few), which creates a safe tunnel for your online activity, encrypting all data traffic your computer handles.

    What a security solution cannot do is to protect your identity. It cannot protect your data outside the safety net you build around your devices. Installed software can’t prevent data breaches or data leaks or fix the age-old habit of sharing too much info, which have left billions upon billions of personal data records scattered across the dark corners of the web. The cyber world is tainted with stolen data we willingly provide when using online services such as social media platforms, banking apps, and shops. Neither privacy nor security can protect your identity from data breaches. Protecting your identity can be challenging.

    Where local security stops, Bitdefender Digital Identity Protection comes to the aid. With Digital Identity Protection, you can: see exactly how much of your personal info has been exposed, receive instant alerts about any new breaches, and discover whether your digital footprint leaves your reputation at risk. It protects your reputation both professionally and personally by analyzing over 100 categories of data linked to your identity, such as e-mail, passwords, SSN, credit cards, travel documents, and phone numbers.

    See all features here, in the user’s guide.

    To sum it up, Digital Identity Protection is an online service that helps keeping your digital identity safe.

    Although it is "Bitdefender Digital Identity Protection", it seems that other security devices related to information leakage can also be used, so if you think it is necessary, we will consider introducing it again.

    Although it is existing total security software, it is operated as an alternative to UTM assist function and endpoint security.

    It seems that information leakage countermeasures (DLP countermeasures) are taken by the UTM function, so we will consider it when necessary.
