G DATA Internet Security 2021
Combine the award-winning antivirus programs from G DATA to suit your needs and protect all your devices – whether Windows PC, Mac, Android smartphone or iOS tablet.
Does everyone in your family use at least one smartphone and several computers? Bringing many heads together is complicated enough. All devices in the household should be secured, but security doesn’t have to be: In the personal “My G DATA” area, the security solutions of all family members can be easily managed. For the birthday there was a new Tablet? No problem! Book another Mobile Security quickly and easily. You can also extend your license at any time under “My G DATA”. By the way: G DATA solutions for Windows and Android offer the possibility to set up a child-friendly browser, to release only certain applications and to limit the usage time of the device.
Protection for Internet Browsing
The powerful G DATA Firewall monitors all incoming and outgoing connections to protect you from hackers and spy software. In addition, the antivirus software checks all files coming from the web. The virus protection stops threats such as infected documents or images as soon as they are downloaded. So even unnoticed downloads no longer pose a threat to you. Internet Security not only uses the hourly updated virus signatures. In addition to signature scanning, our antivirus software works with a cloud solution*: In this online storage, properties of current files that contain malicious code are collected. These properties are compared with those of your files – and you quickly find out if everything is safe.
And how does G DATA protect against dangerous websites?
Internet addresses are also collected in the cloud: If a URL in the database is known to be a distributor of malicious content, our browser protection blocks the page. So if cyber criminals try to trap you with phishing links, you have nothing to fear. This also applies to attacks via social networks: if you click on links from posts and advertisements that contain malware, they won’t open. Regardless of the cloud, our web protection examines all data sent to your computer when you visit a website. So it detects dangerous content before you open the page.
Protection for online banking and shopping
How does BankGuard do this?
Manipulations by banking Trojans take place in specific files in the random access memory. G DATA BankGuard automatically detects attempted infections and replaces the affected memory area with a safe copy.
When receiving and sending e-mails
Besides the files on your hard drive and on external storage devices, our virus scanner also checks your emails for malicious content. This applies to all messages you send and receive via the email program on your computer. If the scanner finds nothing, our Anti-Spam function is also activated. The application checks the email for features that are typical of spam. These characteristics are used to calculate a value reflecting the likelihood of it being spam.
In addition to the separate evaluation, the OutbreakShield technology compares the results to a database on the Internet – patterns of viruses and spam emails sent en masse are collated here. This enables Internet Security to close the gap that exists between the start of a mass mailing and the fight against it in real time, using specially adapted signatures.
