Some Questions About Bitdefender's Advanced Threat Defense And Ideas About Bitdefender's Program(s)
My first question is with ATD.
I've turned off real-time protection, left ATD running alone, and then added some exception rules of my specific application in the ATD's setting, but ATD still seems to interfere my process when it's deleting its own cache files (maybe there're some suspected files in the cache directory).
I am wondering if ATD still monitors excluded/trusted applications when they are manipulating suspected files?
Question 2 is:
Would ATD download allowlist from BD's cloud?
(Actually I am not sure if BD have cloud like KSN/Livegrid...)
I just wanna know if ATD could use some kind of auto-downloaded allowlist to reduce false positives and improve performance.
Lastly, I have a few wishes as a Bitdefender user:
- I want to have a choice to decide if BD need to start when system's booting, or to decide turn the whole BD off when needed.
- I want to upload suspected file within the BD client, just like ESET.
- Can I choose the protection level of real-time protection? I mean I am able to decide if BD monitors on executed, on accessed, or on created&modified.
- I've turned real-time protection off, but the "Bitdefender virus shield" still takes up hundreds MBs of memory space, in comparison to other AVs. Just hope this would be optimized in the future.
