Introduction to Internet Security
The term ‘internet security’ is used to describe software which protects your computer, the data on it and ultimately yourself from being exploited online. Internet security is generally speaking a compilation of different types of security tools, such as antivirus, spamfilters, firewalls and antispyware software. These tools protect you from system crashes and prevent criminals from getting at your personal information and abusing it to´for instance empty your bank account or incur debts in your name.
Nice to know about BullGuard Internet Security:
Easy to use
All the functionalities you need are just one click away from the BullGuard interface. This makes it easy to check the security status of your computer and perform manual scans, get the latest protection updates, run backup of your files, and getting hold of Support.
24/7 Live Support
From time to time you may need help and support. We've built quick access to our Live Support team right into the BullGuard interface.
You get personal assistance through e-mail and Live Chat 24/7, and if you're worried about being able to explain what your problem is, and whether you'll be able to understand and act on the advice our Support Team gives you, don't be!
First of all, our supporters are very good at helping you out, regardless of your technical know-how.
Secondly, you always have the option of giving a BullGuard Support employee temporary access to your computer. That's as close to having a repair man come by and fiddle with your machine as it gets.
