Bullguard is focused on protecting users from cyberattacks that could compromise their personal information and identity and offers a range of tools that can do that. It also provides full-time protection for their smart homes, and the software shows a keen understanding of its customers’ requirement to have a single program that protects all their devices.
The interface for premium protection is clean and easy to navigate. There are separate drop down menus for each of the main options to allow you to access them and alter them. The software has also been developed with performance in mind to ensure that it doesn’t affect the performance of your computer.
Aside from antivirus, the BullGuard package includes a number of additional security and maintenance options. One of them is “Vulnerability Scanner” and it promises to review all programs on your PC and plug any vulnerabilities hackers could exploit. It also includes a network scanner that monitors your WiFi and lists all the devices connected to your router as well as Windows PCs.
Identity Protection is another feature that uses Experian to monitor your personal information online. It will then send you an alert. It also has a Parental Controls module that lets you create an account for your children and block certain things they shouldn’t view online, like adult content and pages which promote drugs or violence.
A firewall and backup modules are also part of the security features. This is a capable tool that has received top marks in tests conducted by AV-Test. In addition, the former lets you create a password vault.
