BullGuard’s, new 2021 suite of antimalware solutions featuring Dynamic Machine Learning capabilities and Multi-Layered Protection is now available. This latest offering provides consumers with more protection for sensitive online transactions by blocking malicious behaviour before it can do damage, even when malware attempts to intentionally take a consumer’s device offline.
A Key feature of this latest solution is the enhanced Multi-Layered Protection, which uses six layers of protection – Safe Browsing, Dynamic Machine Learning, Sentry Protection for Zero-Day Malware, an On-Access AV Engine, a Firewall and a Vulnerability Scanner – to defend the user’s devices from malware, without the need for user interaction. The six layers work in tandem to create a buffer between the Internet and each device the software is installed on, catching inbound and local malware, any erroneous outbound communication to the internet, phishing scams and more.
Dynamic Machine Learning, continuously monitors all processes on a user’s device, enabling real-time detection and blocking of potentially malicious behaviour before it can do damage, even if malware attempts to cut the internet connection. This continuous learning and improving is based on threats that are detected across the entire BullGuard customer base. Dynamic Machine Learning is included in all three 2021 products: BullGuard Antivirus, BullGuard Internet Security and BullGuard Premium Protection.
BullGuard 2021 has also improved application performance while reducing system resource usage, including significantly reduced virus definition file sizes. Additional enhancements include:
- Identity Protection provides heightened protection for your online identity in addition to protecting a user’s physical devices. Additional support for international phone numbers and bank accounts ensures the most accurate monitoring of dark web platforms where stolen user data is sold or traded.
- Game Booster now includes support for anti-cheat engines and uninterrupted video performance while broadcasting during gameplay. Online gaming platforms with built-in anti-cheat features are now supported, allowing users to confidently participate for prize money and in paid competitions. Gamers who wish to play while broadcasting on Twitch or other video gaming community networks will benefit from added support for optimised video.
“Unlike the majority of other cybersecurity solutions, BullGuard’s Dynamic Machine Learning protection continually monitors all processes on your device, enabling real-time detection and blocking of potentially malicious behaviour, even if malware attempts to cut your internet connection,” said Paul Lipman, CEO of BullGuard. BullGuard 2021 is ideal for consumers who want ‘set-it-and-forget-it’ cybersecurity that works behind-the-scenes to provide the best endpoint protection against today’s known and zero-day threats.”
The BullGuard 2021 product line comes as standard with next-generation Antimalware, Game Booster and Vulnerability Scanner. BullGuard Internet Security and BullGuard Premium Protection include a Firewall, Secure Browser and Parental Control, and BullGuard Premium Protection also includes comprehensive Identity Protection and a Home Network Scanner. BullGuard 2021 also automatically alerts customers if they try to access an unsecured Wi-Fi network, enabling them to connect immediately to a secure server if they have BullGuard VPN installed, or prompting them to install a trial of BullGuard VPN to secure their Wi-Fi connection if not.
