Individuals who are looking for internet security protection for their computers usually fit into one of two categories. Either they like to be in control of what the internet security software does for their systems or they like to install it and never touch it again. This feature is what sets BullGuard Internet Security apart from others. If you just want it to perform the recommended functions, it will, but if you want to tell it what to do, you can. Additionally, if you simply install it with the default settings, you won't have to worry whether your system has enough protection, because the software's default settings provide complete internet security.
