BullGuard is a leading provider of consumer and small-business Internet security solutions that safeguard against a wide range of online threats, such as identity theft, credit card fraud, hackers, spam, viruses and spyware. BullGuard is using the two Commtouch solutions in its Internet Security 12 product being launched this month.

"After testing multiple solutions, we selected Commtouch's Anti-Spam and GlobalView URL filtering to replace commercial technologies we had been using because Commtouch's cloud approach aligns with our rapidly growing user base," said Soren Ravn, BullGuard CEO.

Commtouch's cloud Internet security solutions are designed for easy integration into security products that are sold worldwide, since the solutions are language-independent, providing global coverage for both email and Web filtering. The small footprint and minimal resource utilization makes them ideal for limited environments such as desktop software or small appliances.
