Stiftung Warentest, Germany’s leading consumer protection organisation, and Computer Bild, one of Europe's best selling computer magazines, have both given BullGuard top ranking for the toughness of its protection and ease-of-use.
London, March 6, 2018: BullGuard has received two outstanding recommendations for the strength, depth and reliability of its cyber defences.
Stiftung Warentest test, Germany’s leading consumer protection organisation, ranked BullGuard Internet Security as one of the top three security software programs available today.
Further, in a survey of readers of Computer Bild, a German computer publication and one of Europe's best selling magazines endorsed BullGuard as a highly recommended purchase.
Best protection against malware
Stiftung Warentest assessed 22 security software programmes for Windows and nine for MacOS, including nine free versions of security software.
Of the 31 security applications that were tested BullGuard ranked in the top three, a testament to its in-depth layered defences.
The test included directing 40,000 malware samples at each product as well as seeing whether each one could detect 200 phishing sites designed to steal passwords and other personal information.
Stiftung Warentest concluded that BullGuard Internet Security is one of the most potently powerful in protecting against malware attacks as well as identifying phishing sites.
It also spoke highly of BullGuard’s scanner function which scans hard disks and memory for viruses, Trojans and other types of malware that hide on drives and in computer memory.
Highly recommended by users
Between October and December 2017 Computer Bild and Statista, a research institute, asked more than 3,100 security software users for their recommendations for reliable and trustworthy security suites.
The aim was to assess what security software products should be ranked in Computer Bild’s Trusted Solutions 2018 category for cybersecurity.
Among the criteria stipulated by Computer Bild and Statista were trust, performance, reliability, safety and innovation. BullGuard scored very highly garnering 91.9 points from a possible 100.
In the areas of ‘Confidence’ in the product and ‘Recommendation’ to others BullGuard scored particularly highly. Only one other Internet and cybersecurity vendor managed to achieve similar results.
In addition, Statista also asked business software experts for their assessment and this feedback, accounting for 10% of responses, was also included in the final scoring.
Taken together both the Stiftung Warentest and Computer Bild endorsement clearly indicates the strength of protection provided by BullGuard and also how easy it is to use.
This is not surprising given the recent innovations to BullGuard Internet Security 2018 which build on what was already an award-winning security software suite:
- A new anti-malware engine with a triple protection shield provides industry leading levels of security, protecting against all types of malware including ransomware
- A firewall that ensures only legitimate programs can connect to the Internet and that confidential data cannot get out
- Parental controls and browser protection including alerts when users visit unsafe websites that may contain viruses or phishing scams
- A new vulnerability scanner for vulnerability detection and missing software updates
- Game Booster which provides uninterrupted and delay-free gaming experience and improved system performance
