Protect unlimited devices per household
Bitdefender Sphere is a collection of tools which provides complete all-round security for all your devices: PCs, Macs, Androids smartphone and tablets.
Bitdefender Total Security 2014 is on hand to cater for your PC protection needs. It's a full-featured security suite which provides everything you need to keep you safe, both online and off: an antivirus engine; phishing protection; a smart firewall; a spam filter; parental controls, secure online backup space, social networking protection, and more.
Macs need watching, too - if only to make sure you don't pass on Windows viruses to other PC users - and so Sphere also includes Bitdefender Antivirus for Mac, which work to keep any Intel-based Mac malware-free.
And elsewhere, Bitdefender Mobile Security provides three major services for your Android 2.2 (or later) smartphones or tablets. It can detect and remove any malware which might be on your device already; warns you of dangerous websites to hopefully prevent you from encountering any more; and includes a recovery feature to help you locate lost or stolen computers.
Bitdefender highlights the fact that a single Sphere license will cover an "unlimited" amount of devices, and while this is true, there are restrictions. Specifically, Bitdefender Sphere is for home use, so you can't buy a copy and expect it to cover all your business employees. And it only covers three users, although each of those can then individually protect as many devices as they like.
Perhaps the best part of all this, though, is the discount. Because while choosing all three of these packages would normally cost you $159.75, Bitdefender Sphere is available from this store for $39.95 for a one year licence (that's only marginally more than the cost of buying PC protection on its own). If you've a PC, Mac and Android device then this is a great way to get quality protection at a reasonable price.
Please note that the trial version here is for Bitdefender Total Security 2014 (which is the Windows component of Bitdefender Sphere).
Bitdefender Sphere includes an unlimited device 1-Year license.
