How are TSA Scores determined?
The Software Authority strives to be different! Our results are based on factual data and you will never see a non-certified product that you never heard of being rated highly for the sole purpose of pushing sales like we often see on other review sites.
With increasing computer processor speeds being able to handle heavy workloads and improving performance significantly, TSA Scores are focused more on how well a security product protects your system from malware, viruses, and threats as opposed to how much system impact does this security product have. Reality is, if you obtain a nasty Ransomware virus as an example, does having a product that uses limited computer resources matter if you can no longer access your computer?
The TSA Score is determined by analyzing the latest review data from multiple independent testing laboratories, other reputable third party review sites and our many years of experience in the security software industry. The results from these sources are then inputted into a proprietary formula that determines the final TSA Score.
Independent Lab Results
Consistently high performance in stopping malware infecting your system. According to independent labs BullGuard Antivirus is the best software there is.

An elegant and simple design makes BullGuard Antivirus effortless to use. Installs quickly and is easy to manage. With an intuitive interface you can easily customise BullGuard Antivirus to suit your needs, whether it’s setting the spam filter, running scans or adjusting protection levels.
Stops unwanted applications from hijacking your browser and home page and changing your browser settings. Some programs contain adware which installs toolbars and modifies your system settings. They’re not malicious like trojans or worms but they can change your browser settings, alter your home page and direct you to another search engine by default. BullGuard’s unwanted app tool flags up these programs and stops them from changing your settings.
A customisable spam filter allows you to stop spam from clogging up your inbox. Stop that annoying spam from getting through to your inbox by blocking it with the BullGuard spam filter. You’ll no longer be irritated by irrelevant messages and what’s more it also protects you from phishing scams.
Get alerts and warnings about websites that carry malicious code. Malicious code often hides in websites. When you unwittingly click on a link your PC becomes infected and data can be stolen. BullGuard safe browsing warns you of hidden danger lurking in websites – so you can surf the entire World Wide Web in full safety. BullGuard checks all the links that come up in your search results and on your Facebook page, and flags the ones that lead you to malicious websites.
High System Performance
Unlike many antivirus programs BullGuard Antivirus doesn’t slow the performance of your system. Many antivirus software protection programs slow computers down.
