BullGuard Chosen as Internet Security Provider for Intel AppUp Store for Netbooks

Published: Thu Sep 23 2010

BullGuard has developed its Internet security solution dedicated to netbooks and notebooks to overcome the performance loss downside to standard security solutions. BullGuard has optimised its solution and succeeded in creating a comprehensive security package which enhances the netbook’s value and usefulness by having an effective and optimized security solution installed. Despite the very low resource consumption, the solution offers full security and includes Antivirus, Antiphising, Antispyware, Firewall and Spamfilter as well as BullGuard’s renowned 24/7/365 support.

Intel recognises that BullGuard’s internet security solution allows users to take full advantage of everything a netbook has to offer – providing the freedom to be online anywhere without being vulnerable to viruses, phishing attacks etc. The solution is perfect for Intel’s new AppUp netbook store, in which Intel recommends and offers applications to the many million netbook users using the Intel Atom Platform.

"Intel AppUp offers netbook users quick access to applications tailored to their mobile lifestyle," said Katja Reitemeyer, director, AppUp Content Strategy, Intel Corporation. "Using our software development kit, Bullguard was able to very quickly integrate their Internet Security Solution, prepare and validate solutions to be sold at the AppUp store. Intel is delighted that Bullguard embraces our vision and are already looking towards development for MeeGo OS on a multitude of additional platforms" "The new Intel AppUp store has been designed as a hub for the customers of all major netbook vendors", Morten Kjaersgaard, BullGuard’s Director of Strategic Alliances, commented, "For BullGuard to become a recommended security product for Intel AppUp is, of course, a great opportunity and a most welcome endorsement of the security solution we have developed dedicated to the netbooks and notebooks. Intel has a stellar reputation in the PC industry. As a result, BullGuard will benefit from many promotions both online and at Intel AppUp Elements in San Francisco, and we are confident that the new relationship will represent an excellent opportunity for BullGuard."
