Multi-layered cybersecurity protection
BullGuard’s 2021 suite of antimalware solutions feature dynamic machine learning capabilities and multi-layered protection.
Multi-layered protection 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 BullGuard 2021 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. The advanced machine learning system stays one step ahead of cybercriminals by continually learning and improving based on threats that are detected across the entire BullGuard customer base.
