BullGuard has released BullGuard Internet Security 2013, the latest version of its online security suite. Comprising anti-virus, firewall, spam filter, parental controls and more, the suite aims to cover more than most other comparable tools and the latest version features a dramatically redesigned interface which is cleaner and sharper than in previous versions, making it easier focus on the task in hand.
Virus detection rates have been improved with the addition of Behavioural Detection which helps to identify unknown threats by monitoring activity and helps to bolster the regular signature based scanning. Security is further enhanced by the inclusion of a firewall and spam filter, but this is a security suite that bills itself as a tool that not only makes your PC impenetrable, but also provides a number of associated utilities.
In addition to the standard security tools, the suite also includes 5GB of free online storage – this is a suite that goes far beyond the basics. While protection is certainly the main focus of the suite, the inclusion of a Tune Up section that can be used to free up disk space and optimize performance, along with a Parental Control tools means that it also caters for other needs as well.
Although it is only something you will do once, the installation process is unnecessarily convoluted. The initial download is deceptively small and it transpires that this is just a setup tool for the online installer. Despite the fact that the installer then goes online to download the very latest version of the program, once this is installed there is another wait while updates are downloaded – this is something that could be avoided by simply ensuring that the ‘latest’ version of the installer has the most recent definitions built in.
