Bullguard Antivirus is the cheapest option among Bullguard’s 3 main antivirus products. However, this doesn’t mean it is any less efficient against malicious digital attacks. The product features the company’s award-winning malware protection and also uses its multi-layered protection system to provide your devices with all the essential protection you need.
Like most antivirus programs, Bullguard Antivirus contains a ton of basic cyber security features like antispyware, antiphishing, ransomware protection, safe browsing, and more. However, unlike most antivirus, this one has an award-winning anti-malware system – its malware protection won the Gold Malware Protection Award 2017 from AV-Comparatives, one of the world’s trusted third-party authorities on monitoring and testing antivirus products.
Not to mention, this antivirus uses a multilayer protection system to secure your devices against attacks. This system employs signature-based detection alongside a behavioral-based detection in order to identify viruses, especially viruses that hackers have modified specifically to avoid detection by antivirus programs that only use signatures of known viruses to protect your PC.
Bullguard Antivirus also contains a vulnerability scanner that helps you identify and “patch” (via blocking) the holes in your system which a malicious program might potentially exploit before anything bad really happens. This includes stuff like missing security updates, and connections to insecure Wi-Fi networks. This scanner also scans all downloaded items before they are being downloaded, and checks for valid digital signatures that legit applications and drivers would have.
Interestingly, this version of Bullguard even contains a free game booster, allowing you to enjoy the full experience of gaming without being forced to turn off your antivirus program due to unscheduled background scanning slowing down your PC or unwanted pop-up notifications that aren’t at all urgent. Bullguard’s customers will also get a free Bullguard account which will allow them to easily manage all of their subscriptions.
Now, although Bullguard Antivirus has the most basic features among all of its other products, the scope of protection it provides is surprisingly comprehensive enough for most. That being said, this product does not contain a firewall and thus, you might want to keep your free Windows Firewall if you’re using a Windows OS, or get another firewall program to supplement your Bullguard’s antivirus protection.
Bullguard Antivirus is available on Windows (compatible with Win 10, 8, 8.1, 7 and Vista; both 32- and 64-bit), Mac and Android though the features present in each of Bullguard’s antivirus products will vary from platform to platform.
Bullguard doesn’t really offer a lot of packages for the same product, but you can customize your purchase after you click the Buy Now button. Now, for Bullguard Antivirus, the default is the “1 year 1 PC” package, but after you click the button, you will be brought over to customize your purchase. Here, you can extend your subscription duration up to 3 years. Naturally, the longer you subscribe, the more you save. You, however, don’t get to add more devices. If you want to buy the antivirus for multiple devices, then you will need to make the same purchase again.
If you’re not as computer savvy, you might want to add the optional Install and Set Up service for an extra $14.97. A Bullguard staff will then remotely access your computer to help you set up your copy of Bullguard Antivirus. The personnel will check if your program is working properly and remove any other conflicting security programs if necessary. He will also be your cyber security consultant in some way and will answer any security questions you may have.
Still unsure? Well, you can give Bullguard Antivirus a try for completely free via its 15-day trial. And if you do make a purchase and the program isn’t working well enough for you, there’s a 100% money back guarantee offered as long as you make a claim within 30 days.
Despite being relatively less well-known than other antivirus brands, Bullguard Antivirus provides a decent protection for your devices at a pretty low price. Not to mention, this product contains a robust, award-winning, anti-malware system and multiple protection layers to fully secure your PC even from zero-day attacks.
