  • same question here, will there be a Bitdefender 2016 release?

  • same here.... bitdefender beta 2016 ?!?!?! when

  • RohughRohugh ✭✭

    There will no doubt be a 2016 version but I don't know if they will run a beta. I would certainly think they will although it is maybe a little early in the year yet, plus they have Windows 10 to consider so they may be waiting until they get a version closer the the RTM before beta testing starts.

    can bitdefender 2016 beta include pop up alert like emsisoft?


    i have seen emsisoft pop up alert of virus when virus is downloaded, and ON demand scan UI which is very pretty. can you please make UI of bitdefender 2016 antivirus as per emsisoft? for pop up alert which include user interaction ask option like (1) quarantine (2) delete (3) repair (4) ignore with downloading file location path fully visible with threat name in red colour with clearly visible. user interaction for virus is required as same visible in emsisoft.


    also ON demand scanner UI like emsisoft? for bitdefender 2016 beta.


    with this addition, you will surely get more customer of bitdefender.

  • From Total Security 2015 version what I can say:


    Improve perfomance:


    * Improve boot speed time


    * Decrease RAM usage to ( 90-120 MB RAM )


    * Improve HDD usage it used a lot of my HDD (especialy when updating ).


    * Make program more stable especialy with logs and few users said about protection with IDS x64 bit....


    Just optimzime your whole product :)


    And I`m will be back to your security company !


    And you may ask me what pc I have ?


    CPU: i7-4702MQ


    GPU: Geforce GTX 760M 2GB GDDR5


    RAM: 8GB


    HDD: 1TB but running at 5700 RPM thats bad but.


    Curren AV: ESET Smart Security 8.0.312 and I want Bitdefender to be like this av light and fast. Why I still want Bitdefender? For awesome detection rates and best protection.

    I agree with 1-4 entirely. Although unless Windows 64-bit driver signing and kernel injection rules are relaxed then IDS 64-bit will never function properly but also is less relevant as a result. The limitations are there specifically to reduce the exposure to certain threats 32-bit systems are more vulnerable to.


    That is down to Microsoft locking down the architecture rather than any wrong doing on Bitdefender's part. All third-party security packages suffer from the same issue on 64-bit OS.


    I've posted the same suggestions as you previously to deaf ears. You really don't notice how bad things got when you have used BD for a while until you change to another product. I won't name names because comparisons are not allowed on here. Suffice to say, Bitdefender you have a lot of code optimisation to do. The existing method of pre-loading the database into RAM is partly to blame for the performance issues. I have said before that needs revisiting. You are light-years behind the competition with regards efficient resource usage at present.


    Also, the new 'added value' optimisation tools are bloat in my view. Please focus on improving the efficiency of the core security features you earned your reputation from and forget trying to be a Swiss Army Knife.


    Just make sure that windows defrag service (or executables for Vista and XP if you are still supporting them) is allowed full access to Bitdefender files by creating default process exclusion rules for them. They are from Vista onwards scheduled to run automatically by Windows.


    The same goes for Windows Disk Cleanup. It is by far the safest tool to use.


    You should take this as constructive feedback as it is meant. I know the last posts I've made on this forum going back several months now have been ignored apart from other users who have been helpful and knowledgeable as always.


    So the ball is firmly in your court. Do you want to continue driving experienced customers who work in IT and can generate more sale for you away, or do you want to regain our trust by taking on board fair critique based on sound knowledge and presented facts?

    I disagree with you !!! why ? because ....... Greater use of RAM = to be run faster software

    I dont think so....


    This product have no impact on system even on HDD using... and using low ram usage and feels better than Bitdefender in terms of perfomance and speed also in scaning.


    And how smart optimization works in second pic... When you rendering with sony vegas or something doing that requires full pc power.


    Why Bitdefender Photon adaptive technology dont work like that? As its advertised like it adapts.

    That's what they are doing right now and it IS causing problems. They are demanding maximum resources for Bitdefender (insert name here) 2014/15 and riding roughshod over all other programs on the system. Even in game mode the performance of other programs is poorer than it should be.


    Because Bitdefender uses so much ram for caching databases it is increasing the need for other programs to use the pagefile and slowing them down as a consequence.


    Which is why we are asking them to revisit their excessive resource hogging policy.

    I agree with the sentence above. I purchased Bitdefender because it excels at antivirus and firewall protection. Those are the most important features for me and it is imperative that those features work well and continue to be improved. I do not use Bitdefender's Tuneup features because they are not the best in the industry and I want the best. That is why I use Bitdefender for my internet security. Please do what you do best - core security, focus on that, and leave the peripheral tuneup features to other companies.

    Hiya,


    The Private Beta just released is for those who have been beta testers for them in past years, the Public release of the beta will be on the 28th of this month, you also have to have applied and been accepted for it.

  • Bitdefender 2016 beta will become public later this month.


    @ Rohugh


    I have received your email on [email protected] but to be honest I have no information yet on whether it's OK or not to post those images.


    I will get back to you by email as soon as I have a response from my managers.


    Thank you!

  • The bitdefender 2015 will be compatible with windows 10 or only 2016?


    The Microsoft released Windows 10 RTM to insider members and now bitdefender clients dont have a compatible product yet.

    Hiya,


    Windows 10 is still not finalized, Insiders do not have the RTM version, the latest release is 10240 and there still may be upgrades to it before the end of the month. Bitdefender 2015 products will be compatible by the public release of Windows 10.

    10240 is for all intents and purpose RTM. There won't be any more upgrades. There will be an additional update that provides the last RTM bits but that won't magically change the entire OS, so a piece of software wouldn't work. It just seems most anti-virus developers are dragging their feet big-time, waiting until the last possible second to release.

    I suspect that developing a fully compatible anti-virus program is not a five minute job, lots of testing and QA, and there are still 11 days to go before Microsoft releases Windows 10 to the public. Bitdefender have said that they will be compatible on release so they (and we) have time. :)

    I also searched for the BD 2016 beta and found 2 links:


    1 - this link "http://www.bitdefender.com/subscribetobeta/?sm_id=SMGlobal" where u had to register first, get an confirmation mail but could not download the installation files and


    2 - this link "http://www.bitdefender.com/beta/" where you register and can download also the installation files


    Now I'm asking myself wich of these 2 links is legit.

    Hello Gerald,


    There is a pinned topic from Georgia here - http://forum.bitdefender.com/index.php?showtopic=58739


    If you have tested a beta in previous years you can get in now on the private beta, if you haven't you will have to wait until the 28th of this month and test with the upcoming public beta.


    Ro.

  • Hello Rohugh,


    thanks for the quick reply!


    I can't recall testing any beta of BD so far (I'm doing this the first time now since the 2015 versions are not compatible with W10)!


    Prior to registering for beta testing (Link No. 1 and Link from Georgia), I found this link "http://www.bitdefender.com/beta/",'>http://www.bitdefender.com/beta/", entered my BD credentials and installed the 2016 beta (so without prior registering for the beta!).


    Since I can download the files from here "http://www.bitdefender.com/beta/" after logging in with my normal BD account, I wonder why do I have to register on this link "http://www.bitdefender.com/subscribetobeta/?sm_id=SMGlobal"???


    Regards,


    Gerald

    Hi again,


    The first link shows the progress of the private beta, the second of your links (I think) allows you to link to your beta account and Bitdefender Cental (effectively your Dashboard that gives you all that "My Bitdefender does in 2015 plus a place to report beta problems and suggested improvements).


    Ro.


    Edit: Forgot to say that I haven't tried 2016 with Windows 10 yet and by the time the beta becomes public the 2015 versions will be compatible with Windows 10.

  • I have to disagree with you on this thing Rohugh!


    If you scroll down to the bottom of the page provided in the first link you get to this area (see attached picture). There you click on "Create BD account", log in with your credentials and install BD 2016!


    In the 2nd link you can just sign up for the Beta!


    Gerald


    PS: Yes! The 2016 works on 10162, 10166 and 10240 (2015 does not work: CRITICAL_PROCESS_DIED!)

    OK, I didn't check those links as I am in the beta. :) I will not be trying the beta in Win 10 (10240), one comp running it is enough for now but thanks for letting us know. :P
