Just last month we were announcing that BullGuard Internet Security 2013 had received the Advanced+ Certification from AV-Comparatives, following the “Real-World Protection Test” performed by AV-Comparatives’ experts in Aug-Nov 2012. This means that out of the 21 security products tested, BullGuard made it among the very best, alongside brands like Trend Micro, Bitdefender and Kaspersky, in AV-Comparatives’ “Cluster 1.” Now, we’ve got another announcement that we’re proud to make:
AV-Comparatives has awarded BullGuard the Top Rated Award for its excellent overall results in 2012.
AV-Comparatives has just released their yearly “Summary Report 2012 – Winners, Awards, Comments” which offers a very good retrospective on how security products performed throughout 2012.
Based on the results obtained in tests performed over the year, and consequently the types of awards received for each test ("Tested" = 0 points, "Standard" = 5 points, "Advanced" = 10 points, "Advanced+" = 15 points), AV Comparatives offered the Top Rated Award to products that gathered 105 points or more, these being: Avast, Avira, Bitdefender, BullGuard, Eset, F-Secure, G Data and Kaspersky.
Importantly enough, though, products that failed to win any awards in the "Real World Protection" tests have not been considered. Moreover, detection/protection scores are essential in order to qualify for receiving the Top Rated Award, and good results in performance tests cannot make up for weak results in the protection category.
In the two “Real-World Protection” tests conducted by AV-Comparatives in 2012 – March-June, August-November – BullGuard scored a 99.1% and 98.8% protection rate respectively, ranking better than most well-known security solutions for home users.
