Bitdefender discount2014 is not a leap year, but that’s not stopping Bitdefender from using the once-every-four-years event to promote its software. The Internet security company is offering a special discount on all of its 2014 security software products of just $29 in a tongue-in-cheek offer that recognizes February 29th is missing from calendars this year.

Purchase of this software covers up to 3 PCs for 1 year of protection. The discount will run until March 29, so if you have been waiting to purchase Bitdefender, then this month is your best bet.

Why choose Bitdefender for your Internet security?

Bitdefender has long been recognized as a leader in the Internet security software world, providing top-notch protection against viruses and malware. Historically, it has performed well in independent tests with an average score of 2.5/3 stars in the AV-Comparatives Whole-Product Dynamic Test and placed at the top of the pack in the most recent December 2013 test with a score of 3/3 stars. Performance has been marked by some hiccups in the past, but the program’s unique Autopilot setting that allows it to run in the background and only alert you of major issues is great for those who want a no-muss, no-fuss security software option.

In addition to excellent antivirus/antimalware protection, Bitdefender offers plenty of extra features. Highlights from the 2014 software include a wallet feature that lets you store website logins, email client settings, application and subscription information, Wi-Fi networks, personal and banking information in a secure, password-protected virtual wallet and robust parental controls that let you control what your child can access online as well as provides reports with information on how they are using their time on the Internet. Bitdefender keeps your Facebook profile protected with its SafeGo feature, which scans your Timeline and News Feed for potential threats as well as monitors your privacy settings to ensure your account is safe. Finally, Bitdefender offers identity theft protection in the form of free credit report monitoring from a single credit bureau (TransUnion) for free after activating your account – or, you can upgrade for $14.95/month and get 3-bureau (Experian, TransUnion and Equifax) monitoring of your credit reports as well as a plethora of other identity theft protection features.
