CyberDefender Early Detection Center is an all-in-one internet security suite that offers protection from spyware, viruses, spam, phishing and internet identity theft.

Unlike other security suites based on centralized technologies, CyberDefender Early Detection Center uses the power of its own user community to create a proprietary network that protects you from internet threats faster than other more traditional methods. CyberDefender Early Detection Center also makes use of the so called Dual Core Scanning Technology, thanks to which every file is analyzed by two different scanning engines.

CyberDefender Early Detection Center includes an anti-spyware tool and an antivirus, as well as different monitoring tools to check if you have all Windows updates installed, if there are any tracking cookies present, or if you have a firewall to protect your system, among other details.

The interface in CyberDefender Early Detection Center is quite different from the standard layout. It’s composed mainly of text and buttons – almost no graphics – but it’s not difficult to use. The program works fine, but somehow we were left with the sensation that it’s a bit too alarmist – with browser cookies being labeled as “high risk items”. Additionally, these items won’t be removed unless you pay for a license.

CyberDefender Early Detection Center is a security suite that protects you against spyware, viruses and other online threats, but which might be a bit too sensitive.
