BullGuard has scooped a ‘Best Buy’ from Which? for its Internet Security 2016 software suite. If you’re a BullGuard Internet Security user it’s reassurance of the high standards of protection that safeguard you, and if not, perhaps it’s something to consider.

Which? Best Buy’saren’t given out lightly. In fact they’re reserved for “security suites that will keep your computer as safe as Fort Knox.”

This is the conclusion that consumer champion Which? reached after putting BullGuard Internet Security through its paces.

Fort Knox is where most of the US’s gold bullion reserves are held and a common simile for all things impregnable – two inch thick vault doors weighing in at 20 tons and made from torch and drill-resistant material.

Everybody knows Which? – the go-to resource for independent, impartial and informed advice on a wide range of consumer products and services. That is why the endorsement of BullGuard Internet Security carries such weight.

BullGuard Internet Security received a ‘Which? Best Buy’endorsement, which was attributed to seriously strong protection against malware and phishing attempts.

As we all know, malware is an insidious threat that essentially mutates into new forms each day, while phishing attempts are also a regular hazard of online life. Which? described the protection against these threats as “really strong.”

Which? conducted rigorous tests of both paid and free security suites for this in-depth review to establish the efficacy of factors such as performance, features and ease of use.

It ran a full gamut of tests using malicious files to judge the full capabilities of the BullGuard antivirus engine. “Not one of our phishing addresses avoided its net” was the summary of BullGuard’s performance.

The Which? endorsement reflects the high standards BullGuard sets in developing protection for its users, and noted the straightforward setup and transparent auto-renewal features of BullGuard Internet Security 2016.

It was also impressed by a wide range of features including 5GB of free online backup, while simple and reliable parental controls were described as “excellent” and ideal for family users in the home.

Which? tested the latest version of BullGuard Internet Security, which includes a range of new features and improvements including Dropbox-compatible encrypted backup, improved parental controls, PC Tune-up and even stronger antivirus.

Existing BullGuard Internet Security users automatically receive these updates for free.
