What Is BullGuard Premium Protection 2021 Edition?
BullGuard Premium Protection 2021 Edition is an enhanced security and privacy tool designed to keep users' devices and data safe irrespective of their online or offline activities. The security suite also includes an improved Game Booster feature, ensuring that users enjoy an uninterrupted gaming session while still keeping Gaming devices and data safe and protected.
For the 2021 edition, we see BullGuard introducing enhanced features for its AV engine, firewall, parental control, secure browser, and the likes to make it a next-gen security software. For users staying connected via Wi-Fi networks, it's an opportunity to enjoy privacy and security protection while connected to unsecured Wi-Fi networks.
BullGuard Premium Protection 2021 Edition Features
BullGuard has one of the most intuitive User Interface with easily navigable features making it suitable for tech-inclined and less tech-savvy users. Although users would have to get familiar with the Interface to find their way around pretty easily, it does feature a drop-down menu from which users can access every of BullGuard's features within a click away.
Antivirus Engine with Dynamic machine learning and multi-layered protection
Testing BullGuard's antivirus engine against new and existing threats, its Dynamic Machine learning features keep it ahead of the pack in protecting users' devices. We see BullGuard scoring high in its performance as an antivirus engine in all AV lab tests. Its high-performance features can be attributed to its Dynamic Machine Learning capabilities. This enables its AV engine to continually monitor users' devices in real-time, enabling it to detect potential threats before they can harm users' devices.
Aside from Dynamic Learning Capabilities, the signature-based BullGuard AV engine protects users' devices against threats even without running a full system scan or the need to update its virus signature. When connected to the internet, BullGuard's cloud detection can detect new threats in real-time, thus eliminating the need to update its antivirus engine manually.
Its Game Booster is my favorite BullGuard feature. When playing games like PUBG, Minecraft, or Starcraft 2, BullGuard's Game Booster prevented pop-ups and other game interrupters while still keeping my device protected. For this enhanced Game Booster feature, I give BullGuard a thumb's up as a Gamers antivirus. The new Game Booster features include an anti-cheat engine and broadcasting support, which makes gaming time something I look forward to.
Most users have cause to worry about their browsers’ security. With BullGuard’s inbuilt browser, users no longer have to worry about browser security. Its custom-built browser establishes a secure connection to protect users' information and protect them from web-based attacks. Test-running the browser, it requested permissions to load cookies and browser extensions. This implies that users would not have to worry about third-party cookie trackers and malicious websites anymore since the browser can screen out such effectively.
BullGuard's Firewall protection has a host of unique protective features aside from its inbound and outbound traffic monitoring functionality. Its firewall monitors and protects all ports, blocks out unauthorized connectivity attempts, keeps track of security updates, protects the device during downloading, etc. I also find this feature quite impressive for its minimal resource usage, which does not get in the way of other running applications.
This feature is ideal for users who want to monitor and protect their kids online. Playing around with this feature, I can set search filters to prevent access to censored web content, limit screen time, block websites and apps not fit for children usage or consumption, monitor kids location, and a host of other features designed to ensure children’ safety.
Downloading is part of everyday internet life. There is a need to download media files, applications, drivers, etc. BullGuard’s vulnerability scanner automatically scans downloads to verify their sources. As expected, its vulnerability scanner lived up to its expectation of keeping my device safe from malicious downloads. Also, I get alerts for security issues needing updates.
