G Data Antivirus Review

In terms of features, G Data delivers on lots of what you’d expect from a full suite. G Data’s simple, easy interface doesn’t degrade the experience by hiding security status. As many other programs, this program uses an orange tick or caption to indicate the security status.

The program is also very efficient in hugedatainfo.com/virtual-data-room-can-be-used-by-any-type-of-organization blocking new malware. The ‘virus monitoring’ service that funnels your traffic through the G Data cloud service not just updates the virus definition files, it also detects malware based on its behaviour. In our tests, G Data detected and blocked all the new malware we tossed at it with just one false positive.

In AV Comparatives offline detection test, G Data scored even better than Bitdefender’s closest competitor did. This is likely due to the in-house DeepRay engine, which detects malware that has been disguised by analyzing all the actions that such malware is usually trying to execute. It also seeks out patterns that could suggest malicious intent, for instance, changing the settings of programs or monitoring keystrokes.

However it does fall short in a few areas that we consider crucial for an antivirus software suite. The program doesn’t include firewalls, VPN, or parental controls. If you need these extras, G Data’s Internet Security package is more expensive. This could be a major drawback, particularly since top-tier rivals like Norton 360 and Bitdefender provide them at a comparable or cheaper cost.
