Bullguard is a comprehensive security suite. It is not as feature-rich but it’s a good package for those who wish to get the most value from their antivirus software. It is also resource-efficient that helps to reduce the load on the system while offering a range of options to ease it when necessary.
The program launches with modular hubs that have tiles that show the layout of its modules. They include firewalls, antivirus PC tune-up, game boosters, and home network scanners. The “Vulnerabilities’ section will alert you to things such as missing Windows updates autostart service, open ports. The “Game Booster” is a program that optimizes your system automatically while you play, is useful for gamers.
In our tests, we discovered that bullguard was highly effective in preventing the spread of malware, and was relatively low in terms of system resources when compared to the majority of competing products, particularly when it came to CPU usage. We noticed, however, that the antivirus background processes took up a lot of RAM, especially when running on computers with a small memory. When viewed on a high-resolution display the hub app appeared blurred.
Bullguard’s Premium Protection subscription comes with an app for mobile devices that offers parental controls, antitheft and basic backup capabilities to your smartphone or tablet. However, the app is quite basic and doesn’t have important features like security for your webcam or shredders for files. The only way to contact phone support is via live chat or email.
