Update Management
Specify when and where your PC loads updates. This helps you avoid additional costs, by logging into a third-party WLAN for example.

Sophisticated virus scanner

Virus scanners work with signatures. Antivirus experts use these to determine the characteristics of each new malware strain. The scanner can use such a signature to categorise files on your computer as malicious.

At the core of all G DATA solutions for Windows computers is our CloseGap technology. Two scan engines work together in perfect harmony to guarantee maximum security. Together they scan your system for widely distributed malware and dig up new or localised threats. The intelligent technologies complement each other and work exactly where they are needed – without impairing the speed of your PC.

Is a file behaving suspiciously?

Not all malware distributed by cyber criminals is known to antivirus providers. We work with proactive technologies so these can be found as well. Our Behaviour Blocker detects malware from its behaviour.

What happens after you have double-clicked a file? Are unwanted processes launched in the background? Our behaviour analysis stops unnoticed downloads, for example, before they pose a risk.

Security holes as gateways

Besides phishing sites, the majority of attacks from the Internet take place via drive-by infections. Primed websites first spy on the computer’s configuration for attackable applications, such as add-ons in your browser. If a suitable hole is discovered, a matching exploit is sent to the computer. As with personalised advertising, this is precisely tailored. The malicious code exploits the security hole so it can download and execute additional malware in the future – ransomware or banking Trojans, for example.

No opportunity for extortion Trojans

Ransomware is a type of malware – so virus scanners and behaviour monitoring can detect and stop it. We have developed a completely new process to respond even more specifically to the activities of ransomware. G DATA Anti-Ransomware is a proactive technology – encryption Trojans are detected in good time on the basis of features that are typical of malware of this kind.

Security in online banking

G DATA Antivirus also offers efficient protection for your online banking: our patented technology protects your browser against banking Trojans who want to manipulate money transfers, for example. BankGuard detects possible manipulations and replaces them with the original. The virus protection then identifies and deletes the malware.
