Bullguard is a robust security suite that covers all essentials. It’s not as feature-rich as the competition but it’s a great solution for those seeking to get a bit more out of their antivirus software. It also works well with resources, avoiding large system loads and offering several alternatives to help reduce the burden when needed.
The program starts with an open-ended hub that has an organized layout of its modules. They include firewalls, antivirus PC tune-up, game boosters and home network scanners. The “Vulnerabilities’ section will alert you about issues such as missing Windows updates, autostart service and open ports. Gamers will find the “Game Booster” feature beneficial, as it can detect the game you’re playing and then automatically optimize your system.
In our tests, we found that bullguard was extremely efficient in preventing malware infection and was comparatively low in system resources compared to most competing products, especially when it came to CPU usage. However, we did notice that the background processes of the antivirus ate up a fair amount of RAM, particularly when the system has limited memory. Additionally, elements of the hub application appeared at a low resolution and look what i found appeared pixelated.
Bullguard’s Premium Protection subscription comes with a mobile component that provides security against theft, parental controls and basic backup support for your tablet or smartphone. However, the application isn’t a lot and doesn’t include some essential features, such as webcam protection or shredders of files. The only way to contact support by phone is via live chat or email.
