Simple and secure installation.
BullGuard Internet Security inspects your system prior to installation, removes any active malware and adapts to your system specifications. This process ends with a check to ensure the very latest virus definitions are installed. In no time, BullGuard is running in the background ensuring your system is healthy and secured against any threats.
Refreshingly easy to use.
Managing your security couldn't be any easier. The all-new design of Internet Security makes it child's play. Each feature has its own module panel. You simply click for the desired action and it happens automatically, whether it's a quick scan, backing up files or PC tune-up. All the modules are on one page so you can see at-a-glance your PCs security status. And if you want to do a little deeper management, with one click you are taken through to the relevant area.
Protect your computer from unwanted hackers and identity thieves. The Firewall protects you against network attacks and prevents cyber crooks from entering your system.
Antivirus. Effectively catches all viruses.
Our Antivirus includes Behavioural Detection, which spots new viruses because of the actions they take on your computer and stops them before they can do damage. Together with Signature-based Detection, which identifies the 'signatures' of known malware, you gain a multi-layered defence system for your PC that's virtually impenetrable. Top detection rates of viruses and malware have been proven by independent labs.
Powerful Parental Control. Protect without nagging.
BullGuard Parental Control is a powerful and easy-to-use tool that helps you protect your children online. You can block access to suspicious websites, put search filters in place, limit their time online and even monitor their activity. It keeps your children safe from cyber bullying and stops them being exposed to inappropriate content. It gives you peace of mind.
Advanced Backup. Easily back up, recover and share files.
We've included 5GB of FREE online storage so you can keep your important data, photos, music and more safe. You can choose what you want to back up and how often, or just set the feature to auto backup. You can even back up content directly from folders with one click. And here's more: your back-up data is easily accessible whenever you want to view it or restore it to another computer or even your smart phone.
Firewall. Keep out intruders.
Protect your computer from unwanted hackers and identity thieves with this first line of defence. The firewall protects you against network attacks and prevents cyber crooks from entering your system.
Spamfilter. No spam. No scam.
BullGuard Spamfilter keeps out junk mail and email scams, like phishing attempts, virus spreading and foreign language spam. You can also customize filters to block emails you don't want to receive.
Safe Browsing. All web sites checked.
Some websites have malicious code hidden in them. Or they are used to launch phishing attacks. The BullGuard protection software checks the websites that come up in your searches and lets you know which ones are safe and cautions you about those that can't be trusted.
PC Tune Up. Keep your PC fast and clean.
You'll never have to wait again to get your computer up and running. BullGuard's PC Tune Up removes unnecessary files to improve your computer's performance and frees up memory so your computer runs faster.
Game On. No interruptions.
Most security software reduce gaming performance and require a special "Game Mode" to be activated while you're playing. BullGuard solves this performance problem intelligently, letting you enjoy gaming at full throttle but still ensuring unparalleled security on all levels.
Vulnerability Scanner. Keep your PC in good health.
Checks your computer for out-dated software that hackers and viruses can exploit to gain access to your system, damage it or steal personal information. Once this software is flagged up it can then be removed.

BullGuard's inclusion of antispam with the standalone antivirus might seem to be an example. However, BullGuard Internet Security adds plenty of additional protection, including some components that many vendors reserve for their top-tier mega-suite
Parental control in BullGuard goes a little beyond the absolute basics. You can configure this component separately for each Windows account on the PC, and access to settings requires a password.
BullGuard's backup doesn't run automatically in the background, because you have to tell it just what you want it to do. However, it's really easy to use. You just tell it What, Where, When, and How to back up, and save your choices as a backup profile.
PC Tune Up
Like the vulnerability scan, the PC Tune Up component runs automatically in the background. By default it handles a number of common cleanup tasks, among them deleting browsing traces, deleting temporary files, and defragmenting the Registry. You can also configure it to automatically empty the Recycle Bin, clear the Downloads folder, and delete any broken Registry entries it finds.
BullGuard's firewall is simple, but competent. Not only did it protect my physical test system against port scans and other Web-based attacks, it actively identified several of the attacks and popped up a notification.Pros
Good antivirus lab scores. Good score in our malware-blocking test. Excellent malicious URL blocking score. Very good antiphishing score. Firewall resisted attack in testing. Vulnerability scan. Multi-faceted PC tuneup. Local and online backup.Cons
Spam filter missed much spam. More impact on system performance than most suites. Realtime protection tried to block the same malware thousands of times. Smart kids could get around some parental control limits.Summary
BullGuard Internet Security gives you antivirus, firewall, antispam, parental control, antiphishing, backup, and more. It's a full-featured suite, at a nice price, but the effectiveness of its components varies.
