Not too bad at all to try it out. Looking at the picture should look familiar. Like SMobile Systems. That’s right, it says Junos Secured, it’s powered by Juniper Networks, the same company who acquired SMobile Systems. In fact, Juniper Networks has a product in the BlackBerry App World and is entitled Junos Pulse. Junos Pulse is for enterprise and requires a license for activation.
Here’s a little about BullGuard:
Launched in 2002, BullGuard is one of the fastest growing Security brands. Its philosophy has always remained the same – to combine technical excellence with a genuine understanding of consumer needs, creating simple, easy to use products that deliver universal, complete protection as well as enabling customers to control and manage their digital footprint.
BullGuard has offices in the United Kingdom, Germany, France, Benelux, Denmark, Sweden, Romania, Australia and the US.
When I first signed up, I couldn’t get the app to activate. I tried everything. I had contacted their live support and after a few lines of conversation I was told to come back much later. The second time I contacted them, I reached Loana who was extremely helpful and walked me through the activation and it was running like a charm.
I know from being a huge fan of SMobile Shield that this will be a great product because all these companies have a reputation of protecting information.
***After updating the OS on my phone, I couldn’t register. I tried getting customer service with the Live Chat and no resolution. I just decided to delete the app and give up, nothing at all like the help and assistance I received with SMobile Systems, or resolution of issues. Then again, I guess you receive what you pay for since it is a free temporary subscription. I didn’t have it long enough to miss it.
