BullGuard Announces Launch of its Next Generation Internet Security Software

BullGuard has announced the launch of its next generation Internet Security software. Internet Security introduces a proactive and unique form of browser protection designed to safeguard users from unwanted software that can cause undesirable changes to their system. By taking a heuristic approach to detection, unwanted apps can be identified, blocked and removed consistently and effectively, ensuring a smooth browsing experience that is not compromised by unwanted software. Internet Security continues its trend of offering the very best security without compromising system performance. BullGuard's suite has achieved perfect scores from AV-TEST for both detection and performance, and has achieved a VB100 rating from Virus Bulletin 21 consecutive times. This multi-layered defence has now been improved even further, and incorporates an intelligent Resource Monitor that ensures the software does not affect performance regardless of system specification. BullGuard has also taken a unique and dynamic approach to Internet Security by providing regular feature and performance updates throughout the licence period. BullGuard's customers benefit from dedication to constant improvement that has seen a number of new features introduced over the last year, ensuring that its software remains at the forefront of advanced security.

This cutting-edge app delivers next generation security to protect users against a wide range of threats and offers defence to safeguard against the damage than can arise from loss or theft. BullGuard Mobile Security offers an array of powerful tools unmatched by competitors. It's easy-to-use, provides intuitive operation and doesn't drain batteries. It delivers comprehensive protection and ensures that important data is kept safe from prying eyes. The app also includes BullGuard Mobile Security Manager, a web-based platform that provides remote access to devices, and answers the problems of safeguarding data faced by mobile users. Key features of the all new BullGuard Mobile Security & Antivirus app: Antivirus: Antivirus protects against malware, adware and trackware to keep a phone safe and nuisance-free. It features an ultra-fast cloud-based AV engine that has minimal impact on battery power and ensures that the very latest virus signatures and definitions are utilised to scan a device without requiring regular updates or user intervention. An automatic scan checks apps as soon as they are installed and immediately notifies users if malicious or suspicious code has been detected. A manual full scan can also be carried out providing a complete summary of current phone status. Remote monitoring of virus events is also available through the web-based BullGuard Mobile Security Manager. Antitheft and Remote Control (lock, wipe, locate, alarm): Comprehensive Antitheft tools offer robust protection if a device is lost or stolen. Features include remote lock and unlock of a device, GPS locate, remote data wipe, and a Scream function to help locate a device in the immediate area. If someone tries to change the SIM card the device automatically locks or wipes data. All of these features are accessible via the Mobile Security Manager on any internet enabled device. Mobile Backup with one tap: BullGuard Mobile Security also includes a backup module to safeguard important data. One-tap backup safeguards key data such as contacts, calendar and SMS information. This backup feature provides a secure online drive with capacities of up to 100GB. Users can also easily transfer data between a mobile device and computer ensuring swift and trouble-free access to backup content on the move. Remote control of devices with Mobile Security Manager: BullGuard Mobile Security Manager is a web-based interface that allows users to view information and reports on various aspects of the software from any internet enabled device, as well as control many of the features remotely. It offers device monitoring for messages, voice calls and installed apps, and can show antivirus activity and the data backed up from your mobile device. It also offers control over antitheft commands, including remotely locking, wiping and locating a device, or activating a scream command to locate it in the immediate area. Parental Control and monitoring: A powerful Parental Control module helps safeguard children. Parents can discretely monitor SMS messages, calls and pictures, and view applications that are installed on a child's device. They can also activate GPS tracking to locate a device. Remote management of these features provides parents with discreet real-time, flexible monitoring and control. Spam blocker: A Call Manager tool can be used to automatically block numbers from call history, contacts lists or manual entries via a blacklist.
