London, 29th April 2016:
BullGuard Internet Security 2016 has scored top ranking yet again. The Danish Consumer Council Tænk evaluated 19 antivirus programs and BullGuard came out top as the ‘Best-in-Test.’
This ranking follows hot on the heels of evaluations carried out by consumer organisations in Sweden, Germany and the UK. In all three independent tests BullGuard Internet Security 2016 was nominated as the ‘best buy’ leaving many well-known brands trailing in its wake.
Tænk tested the 19 programs on their ability to detect and stop malware, how robust and rigorous the firewalls are and how easy to use the software is.
BullGuard scored ‘good across all three categories and was the only security program with a firewall that scored above average. The average rating for all tested programs was 58% while BullGuard scored 68%.
The antivirus programs were assessed for their responsiveness in identifying and stopping malware from outside of the firewall, with an infected USB key and from malware infected web sites that users are directed to via phishing emails.
The firewall was also assessed on how easy it was to enter the computer and whether it was good at stopping infected computers from sending malware beyond the firewall.
Ease-of-use was also evaluated according to how clear, helpful and intuitive the software program is in helping users navigate and use the features. Tænk also concluded that free security programs should be avoided because at the very least they make use of the user’s personal data for other things.
