While Defender-Pro may not boast the name recognition of industry giants like Norton or McAfee, it has plenty to recommend it—including its recent partnership with acclaimed Kaspersky Security Network. Throughout its 10 years of experience, the company has amassed a satisfied customer base (now millions strong) across North America, while still faithfully holding fast to its founding values of innovation, user-friendliness, and affordability. Its latest Internet security offerings are no exception—new and old customers alike should find them worth their consideration and hard-earned dollars.
Defender-Pro’s basic Antivirus and Internet security package offers a wide range of features. Besides daily updates, your PC will benefit from Defender-Pro’s firewall (complete with Network Address Translation), online backup, vulnerability scanner, anti-phishing, chat protection, Wi-Fi protection, and USB immunizer (which renders your flash drives invulnerable to attack). And that’s not all—with Defender-Pro, you never have to worry about slowing down your computer, as PC optimization is one of Defender-Pro’s characteristic features. PC optimization creates and constantly updates database of files known to be safe, and avoids the need to scan them during the official scanning process, meaning scanning is always as efficient as possible.
Defender-Pro does offer a considerably simplified version of their Internet security suite for free. However, if you require anything more than barebones antivirus protection, you will want to pay for one of the full Antivirus and Internet Security packages: the Defender-Pro Antivirus and Internet Security or the Ultimate Bundle, with the primary difference between the two packages being that former covers three PCs, and the latter covers five.
The Defender-Pro Antivirus and Internet Security suite should be sufficient for most customers’ needs; however, those who need protection for more than the 3 PCs offered by the standard package will want to consider the Ultimate Bundle (the two extra PCs is the most appreciable difference between the two packages). At $34.99, the price is on the low-end of industry averages for the wide range of features provided. In addition to Defender-Pro’s 30-day money back guarantee, Defender-Pro also offers a buySAFE guarantee encompassing ID Theft Protection, purchase guarantee, and a lowest price guarantee, meaning you can rest assured you are receiving the best possible value.
It’s hard to find fault with Defender-Pro’s customer service: its Live Support, manned by expert technicians, is available 24 hours a day, every day of the year. Furthermore, when it comes to reaching Live Support, your options are nearly unlimited: you can speak with a Defender-Pro representative over phone, email, or live chat. You can also choose to connect with the company via Facebook or Twitter. If you prefer, you can search Defender-Pro’s extensive Knowledgebase for tips and topical articles.
Users nearly universally applaud Defender-Pro for its highly intuitive interface (and little wonder, since the company identifies user-friendliness as one of its top priorities). All Defender-Pro’s essential features are located in an easily navigable sidebar, which enables you to adjust your Internet and personal security settings, as well as fine-tuning your firewall.
Defender-Pro is a respectable choice on all fronts: offering impeccable and highly accessible customer service, a thoroughly user-friendly experience, and airtight online protection for a reasonable price.
