BullGuard has done it again.

BullGuard has scooped top honours in an AV-Test of antivirus software for home users.

The independent testing, which assessed security software from eleven vendors, including BullGuard, was carried out between September and October this year on computers running Windows 10.

BullGuard scored consistently high in these tests which AV-Test carries out six times a year.

But this time BullGuard Internet Security scored highest in all categories to take pole position in the top-ranking charts.

Protection

BullGuard Internet Security gained top marks in the protection category which tested for how well it stopped viruses, including zero-day threats which often cause the most damage. One example being last year’s WannaCry ransomware, which rampaged around the world in a matter of hours taking out the systems of many high profile organisations.

BullGuard’s multi-layered detection engine is specifically designed to stop all threats from getting through, including all types of ransomware and crypto-mining malware.

Performance

BullGuard Internet Security also gained top marks for performance. This category assesses how well antivirus software operates on a computer.

Does it slow a computer down; does it interrupt other processes on a computer? Absolutely not; this is why BullGuard ranked highest.

In fact, BullGuard Internet Security actually boosts performance for gamers with an exclusive Game Booster feature which ensures that gamers don’t have to turn off their protection to enjoy blisteringly fast gaming.

Usability

Usability was the third and final category that AV-Test assessed across all the antivirus software suites.

Again, BullGuard achieved full marks. This wasn’t surprising given that one of BullGuard’s guiding design principles is to ensure the software is uncompromisingly easy-to-use.

Too often security software can appear complex for home users with interfaces that are baffling to navigate. As a dedicated supplier of security software for home users BullGuard takes the position that the user must be at the centre. As a result, the user control panel is simple-to-use, well-designed and aesthetically pleasing, as AV-Test will testify too.
