The software offers a range of improvements, including powerful parental controls that allow parents to monitor and block access to certain types of websites or IM chat applications, and now also offers better interception and block features to boost efficiency. Parents can even set how much time a child can spend on a computer or online per day in hourly increments. PC Tune Up allows users to effectively free up space and includes registry backup/restore and cleanup to remove unused registry entries, startup application management and service management, all of which help to improve the performance of a PC. 5GB of online backup can now be controlled directly through program folders without having to open the BullGuard software interface, with easy access to online backups from the PC and mobile devices, alongside improved continuous backup functionality.
Building on top detection scores by independent malware tests, including Virus Bulletin, AV Comparatives and AV-test labs, the Antivirus component of Internet Security 2013 has been further improved by enhancing behavioural protection to make it even more secure, doubling repair capabilities and streamlining scans to increase efficiency and user control.
"At BullGuard we are all too aware of the changing face of threats and our priority is always to ensure that our software is well prepared to deal with both current and future attempts to invade our privacy," says BullGuard COO, Mike Hodges.
