A recent study shows that higher education is failing to prepare students for cyberthreats. Considering what a large part of our lives is consumed by the internet and our devices, it’s surprising that we’re not teaching our children more about the online world.
Last week we were announcing that BullGuard Internet Security 2013 achieved the perfect score in Protection from the AV-TEST Institute.

New antivirus test scores are in and we’re thrilled to announce that BullGuard has yet again beaten out the other products with a near perfect score!
