Bullguard Backup 8.0 backup software

improved backup service from Bullguard

BullGuard has released an updated version of its standalone backup software with enhanced encryption and a larger online vault.

BullGuard Backup 8.0 now features 10GB of online backup space while also supporting backups to local media and email backups for Outlook, Outlook Express, Windows Mail and Thunderbird email clients.

Version 8.0 offers improved encryption and compression options as well as the ability to view the online backup space as a drive in Windows, so users can simply drag and drop files to the online archive.

Other features new to this version of Bullguard Backup include a backup service, which will automatically launch when the computer is idle, making sure backups are performed regularly but without interrupting the user. There is also now a remote access service that allows users to grant access to their PCs to the help desk so they can offer more efficient and quicker support.

A one-year subscription costs £25 and is available from www.bullguard.com.
