You know you’re in good company with BullGuard Internet Security when it wins a Gold Malware Protection Award.
This coveted honorific was given by independent testing lab AV-Comparatives in its 2017 review of security software.
BullGuard was only one of two companies in a crowded security market to win the award, which is clearly a testament to the strength of its in-depth defences.
AV-Comparatives ran a number of tests on BullGuard Internet Security during 2017.
It tested how well BullGuard detected known malware and also the effectiveness of its behavioural detection engine which identifies and blocks newly released and as yet unrecognised malware such as ransomware.
Persistently positive results arising from the tests led to BullGuard being awarded the best-in-class Gold Malware Protection Award.
Of course we think it’s a great accolade but we don’t strive to win awards rather our focus is on protecting our customers.
For instance recent new innovations to BullGuard Internet Security include:
- A next generation anti-malware engine that provides triple layers of defence. It recognises trusted websites and applications and continually scans code for anomalies associated with malware. When malware is detected it is quickly neutralized.
- A new firewall provides added layers of protection. Optimized for Windows operating systems, it tracks security updates, uses less CPU power so other applications run smoothly, and incorporates enhanced features such as application filtering to protect users against applications that may be hiding malware. It also blocks unauthorized attempts to connect a device to the Internet.
- A new Vulnerability Scanner blocks network access points hackers like to exploit and automatically alerts users to missing security updates and connections to insecure Wi-Fi networks. It also stops applications from downloading automatically and automatically carries out a number of network checks to ensure users remain safe.
