BullGuard released BullGuard Backup 8.0, the second version of its stand-alone backup offering. New features include improved encryption and compression options, a larger Online Backup Drive and a unique Support experience. BullGuard has been developing backup technologies since 2003.
With BullGuard Backup users can easily set up, schedule and configure their backups. An upgradable 10 GB Online Backup Drive is included in the subscription. Backups to local media are also supported, as are email backups for Outlook, Outlook Express, Windows Mail and Thunderbird email clients.
Under the default scheduling setting, BullGuard Backup 8.0 will automatically launch backup profiles to run when the computer is idle, making sure backups are performed regularly and without interrupting the user. Other scheduling options are also available.
In BullGuard Backup 8.0 files are compressed before being transferred to the Online Drive, significantly speeding up the transfer process. Users also have the option of compressing their files during storage, allowing more files to be stored. As in the previous version, files are encrypted during transfer, but users can now also choose to encrypt files during storage.
A one-year subscription costs 60 US$.
