BullGuard Premium Protection (2014) Editor's Review

PC security apps are in high demand these days, given the rampant growth of malware attacks and attacking exploits worldwide. To stave off the rising competition in the sector, security suite makers try to bundle in additional goodies with their offerings, more so with top of the line products. You will find such software being offered with modules like backup, PC tweaking tools and various additional utilities. BullGuard Premium Protection, being the top notch contender in the company’s offering, packs in nearly everything you can think of.

The app runs on PCs with Windows XP SP2 and later version of OSes. Its overall hardware requirement is not very high compared to many existing rivals. It offers protection for 5 computers. This is a multilingual app. The installation is simple and after the process is done, a system scan is run and the app downloads updates to signature files. At this stage, you also need to create an account and register the product online. Interestingly, the firewall is installed when you restart the PC post registration.

BullGuard Premium Protection has an UI that is a tad different from that of several PC security suites you come across these days. The UI displays 8 of 9 components at time and you have to use a slider to view an additional component. The UI has a white-red color scheme and overall uncluttered layout. On the UI’s right top part you can access detailed settings and update.

BullGuard Premium Protection gets good score from most Independent virus testing labs. The app however fares moderately in blocking malware at url level. However, it redeems itself to an extent in phishing protection. Its spam filter takes more time to work than that of most competitors but the performance is reasonably good.

The firewall deployed in BullGuard Premium Protection sticks to the old school method of asking users for action. However, the firewall, aided by the suite’s antivirus module performs well. It copes well with both stealth and direct attacks.

The suite also comes with a Parental control module. It offers Internet time scheduling and Web content filtering. Besides, it can also block a number of chat-related apps. You can add a program in blocked list if you do not want the kids to use it. The nice thing is the app does not get fooled by renamed programs. There are additional components like vulnerability scanner and PC Tune Up.

BullGuard Premium Protection offers backup option to entice users. Backups can be stored on BullGuard Online Drive. Of course, you can store files in local and external drives. It offers a generous 25 GB online backup limit. To keep tab on Facebook activity of your kids, you can resort to the app’s Social Media Protection. It covers a total of 10 Facebook accounts.

BullGuard Premium Protection has an online console that can be used to manage Social Media Protection and Identity Protection. You need to fill out your financial and personal details to use this protection. You will need to create a password to use the service as well.

The app does not make system slow or adds to boot time as such. BullGuard offers Live chat and email based support for customers. You can also access an FAQ in the website and product guide for usage, installation related resources.

Positive Points:
•    Good phishing and spam protection.
•    Powerful Parental Control module.
•    Social Media protection.
•    Bundled 25GB online backup .

Negative Points:
•    Malware detection not very good.
•    Slow spam filtering.
•    Firewall requites user intervention.

Conclusion:

BullGuard Premium Protection is a feature rich Security suite that performs well in some departments but scores rather low in some others. Its malware protection is decent but several rivals fare better. The Firewall offers good protection but it relies too much on user input, which is an outdated approach. In phishing and spam protection, the suite performs better than average. The Parental control section also offers good level of protection and so does Identity protection. The online backup with 25 GB quota is another thing that works in its favor. The protection, additional bells and whistles and 5 PC license may seem lucrative, but in core malware protection it gets outshined by rival contenders.

Rating: 3.5/5
