A revolution in user-friendliness, Internet Security 9.0 boasts a new super simple user interface which means that functionality is no more than one click away from the start screen: All the technical stuff is tucked away behind the scenes, leaving the end user completely safe whilst blissfully unaware of the technological intricacies behind internet security. Should the user be interested in customising profiles, settings and the like, that is of course possible – Internet Security 9.0 offers the technically savvy plenty of adjustable filters and rules to suit a plethora of needs. They are just contained so as not to confuse or concern those who don’t want or need to know about ‘ICMP rules’ and ‘subnets’.
Claus Villumsen, BullGuard’s CTO, said: “As the online security threat continues to grow, consumers are becoming increasingly aware that being connected to the rest of the world is potentially a risky business. And they realise that online protection is necessary. The problem is that internet security issues have grown so complex and diverse, that consumers have given up on the technical terms used by the security industry. Consequently, locating a security product, installing it and actually using it effectively, is an overwhelming and unwelcome task to a lot of people. That’s why BullGuard focuses on ease-of-use, a down-to-earth, low-tech style of communication and a support service which is unrivalled in the software industry.”
Game Mode – full protection without loss of speed
BullGuard Internet Security 9.0 includes a Game Mode feature that protects the gamer's PC without sacrificing the quality and speed of game play. The Game Mode operates alongside the security features but directs the computer's resources towards the game rather than the security program, ensuring maximum performance without compromising safety.
Consequently, BullGuard is the perfect security suite for the average household, as the 3-computer licence caters for both safety and performance, regardless of whether family members are using the computer for banking or gaming.
Claus Villumsen concluded: “BullGuard Internet Security 9.0 provides comprehensive threat protection which doesn’t slow down a computer no matter what it is used for, as well as an unparalleled user-friendliness on all levels, including an acclaimed support service. On top of that, the suite comes with 5 GB of Online Backup – a bullet proof method of keeping photos and all other important and personal data safe.”
