BullGuard has announced the release of the new version of BullGuard Internet Security it’s most progressive and intuitive security suite to date.
BullGuard Internet Security is designed to offer reliable protection, silent and efficient background operation and to appeal to any level of user ability.
Alex Balan, Head of Product Management, BullGuard, said: “It is our most advanced security suite yet, and one that offers a significantly improved degree of control and operation.”
Notable enhancements include advancements in the behavioural detection engine which can prevent zero-day malware threats. Additional tools include a smart-filter for safe browsing, an advanced firewall and protection against Advanced Persistent Threats (APTs) and Targeted Attacks.
An all-new user interface and improvements to usability means default functions for all the key tools in Internet Security are accessible with one click. Further control is available directly through the main interface.
Importantly, BullGuard Internet Security is designed to be used by anyone, from the complete novice to those who like to retain full control over the minutiae of system security. A choice of basic or advanced setting displays ensures that unnecessary or unwanted functions are hidden from sight to simplify core operation for new users, while those who desire more advanced control will find access to an impressive level of fine-tuning.
BullGuard Internet Security retains the rich array of tools that go beyond core security, helping to make it the most complete solution for system protection and maintenance on the market. A 5GB Backup module has been redesigned from the ground up so users can easily create a backup of a file or folder that is regularly synchronised with BullGuard’s servers.
Before installation begins, the software scans a system for potential threats and eliminates any detected malware to ensure a system is clean. The installation process is streamlined to require virtually no user interaction.
When installed, BullGuard Internet Security regularly scans a system and performs automatic maintenance tasks such as vulnerability detection, backup and tune-up quietly in the background without using up valuable system resources or interrupting the user.
Balan adds: “As ever, we’ve placed a strong focus on ensuring that our excellent reputation in the security market remains intact by revising and improving core security. We’ve also further improved usability by ensuring that the majority of tasks can be set to run in the background, with as little user interaction and impact on system resources as possible. In short, once installation is complete a user can let it do its job with minimal interaction.”
Improving on its predecessors wasn’t easy. Over the last four years BullGuard has never missed a Virus Bulletin VB100 award. We also consistently score in the top three, in tests by independent assessors AV-TEST Lab and AV-Comparatives.
In addition to the improvements, all of the regular tools BullGuard Internet Security users have come to expect are present, including a powerful Spamfilter, advanced parental controls, a game mode and free 24/7 support for help with any of the software’s features or advice on threats and general security issues.
