Bitdefender QuickScan uses cloud scanning technology to detect active malware on your system. Because it focuses on active e-threats, the product uses just a fraction of the system resources needed by a regular virus scan and requires no time-consuming virus signature updates, as the detection process is performed by remote Bitdefender servers.
Key Features include:
- Fast: Bitdefender Quickscan runs in the cloud as a lightning-fast virus and spyware detection tool, providing an alternative to the time consuming traditional virus scanners.
- Light: Quickscan detects viruses and spyware without slowing down your PC, as most operations are performed remotely on Bitdefender servers.
- Easy to use: The Quickscan service can be accessed from any Internet-connected PC. You don't need to install software, perform updates or do any configuration tasks.
- Up to date: As the scanning process takes place directly from Bitdefender’s servers there’s no need for virus signature updates.
QuickScan only detects viruses and spyware which are active in memory or present in files that are run at system startup. Inactive virus bodies are not scanned for and therefore not detected.
Bitdefender QuickScan is great online tool that can protect your computer by routing out any threats you may have on your system and alerting you accordingly.
