    So far the program has not met my expectations 100 % yet. I'm still testing it.

    29/11/2018

    I have had to wait a bit longer for some games to start since I installed the program.

Real-time protection

The manufacturer BullGuard no longer uses the spam protection of older versions; the real-time protection was significantly improved instead. The results in the important core element of the software working more effectively and offering powerful real-time protection. Through a new behavior detection engine the software can detect harmful behaviour even faster and even protects the users against unknown hazards.

 

BullGuard has 3-level protection against threats. On the 1st level, trustworthy websites and applications are recognized. On the 2nd level, the software scans for anomalies and suspicious signatures. On the final level, all detected hazards are immediately moved to quarantine and then neutralized. BullGuard starts automatically with the operating system, is permanently active in the background and receives current virus definitions through regular updates. The multi-level protection detects phishing attempts, all types of malware, trojans and ransomware. The software examines data from USB sticks, drives as well as external hard drives and removes infected files.

Safe surfing

BullGuard has a few more functions in addition to comprehensive real-time protection. An integrated firewall may not be included, but users benefit from the “Secure Surfing” function. The software automatically detects harmful links on websites and inspects every download. Malware is immediately removed and the unsafe links are no longer a hazard for users. BullGuard automatically detects phishing websites and closes all existing holes in security in the system and browser.

Through the effective ransomware protection, users can no longer be blackmailed by cyber criminals through special software. The user can save sites visited in different lists in terms of their potential for danger and place various harmful websites on a blacklist. These are no longer a threat in the future and are automatically blocked by the software. Thanks to the anti-virus software, buyers can securely surf and shop online and also use online banking.

Performance

The BullGuard software has relatively low technical requirements and can even run on an older computer. Even though the anti-virus program starts with the operating system and is permanently active in the background, it does not have a negative effect on computer performance. Users do not even notice the software at all. The focus was on using  resource-friendly technologies     when developing BullGuard. That is why the software is much more frugal than other security programs. The BullGuard system scanner inspects the computer and reports all findings to the user. This takes some time, but puts only minimal strain on your computer. Even in the active state, users can continue to work as usual and simultaneously use multiple programs without any restrictions.

Special features

Even though the BullGuard software is not a security solution with an integrated firewall, the anti-virus program has many practical features. The vulnerability scanner warns users of unprotected networks, missing security updates and examines the computer’s network encryption. The software blocks all access points that hackers exploit to gain access to the computer and prevents all harmful applications. The Game Booster is a patent-pending technology. It was developed by BullGuard so that users can play current computer games without restrictions and still have optimal protection. Gamers benefit from high performance and do not have to worry about their security.

User-friendliness

Installing BullGuard requires slightly more time than with comparable programs. Once this has been completed, users must create a free user account at BullGuard. As soon as the account has been activated, the software will update its virus definitions and be ready to use. BullGuard is distinguished by a high degree of user-friendliness, is  fully available in English and  easy operation. Nevertheless, the settings are somewhat limited for experienced users. The program works from Windows XP with Service Pack 3.
