BitDefender announced that BitDefender for HTTP Proxy for Linux is available for beta testing.
It offers advanced features, including:
- Real-Time Scanning of Internet Traffic: proactively identifies and blocks malicious HTTP-based malware threats
- Enhanced Performance: BitDefender for HTTP Proxy beta uses BitDefender’s certified antivirus engines, which use less resources, provides better detection rates and increases performance

- Multiple HTTP filters: it provides users with many HTTP filtering options, including a content type and method filter, URL filter, traffic control size filter and a header filter
- Command Line Interpreter: it uses an easy to use command line interpreter, with auto-complete function for all parameter levels
