    BullGuard is the Best in Virus Detection

    Independent Test Results From AV-Test Lab Hot Off the Press Puts the Recently Launched BullGuard Internet Security Version 10 at the Very Front of the Security Industry

    FORT LAUDERDALE, Florida, November 8, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- BullGuard (http://www.bullguard.com/), specialists in user-friendly PC & Mobile security solutions, submitted its BullGuard Internet Security 10 to AV-Test lab. The results are in, and BullGuard passed with flying colours, leaving no doubt that BullGuard version 10 provides unrivalled protection against viruses and all other kinds of malware.


    The test proves that BullGuard's protection is superior in virus detection, scoring highest among all the Internet Security suites tested in blocking "Real World" attacks (100%), detecting Zoo (99,05%) and Wildlist (100%) malware, and detecting active and inactive rootkits (100%).

    ....

    BullGuard Internet Security also scores an impressive 0,00% when it comes to false positives, both from Windows and Office installations and from popular programs from major download sites. ....

    FWIW: I tried the 2009 version of Bullguard on a Vista 64x PC. It was like someone poured molasses onto my hard drive. I uninstalled it 5 minutes after installation.

    that sounds unlikely, as Q4 is October/November/December (which may be why they will publish it in January).

    Sorry I was not clear :)

    I don't think this is the ongoing Whole Product Dynamic Test they are talking about. Might not even be a comparative. If it's something like the VB 100 may not be such a big deal but the marketing guys obviously love it. As always, I stand to be corrected as needed.

    "The test proves that BullGuard's protection is superior in virus detection, scoring highest among all the Internet Security suites tested in blocking "Real World" attacks (100%), detecting Zoo (99,05%) and Wildlist (100%) malware, and detecting active and inactive rootkits (100%)...

    ...AV-Test's test result will be published on AV-Test's website, http://www.av-test.org, in Q1 2011, along with the results for the rest of the industry. However, reviewers are welcome to request BullGuard's test results."
