G DATA CloseGap

Active hybrid protection for fending off malware and online attacks

It takes a prompt, accurate response to prevent infection by computer malware, with as little time as possible between the occurrence of the malware and the release of a virus signature. Traditional antivirus solutions often can't keep pace.

G DATA CloseGap technology takes a different approach combining proactive, signature-based security technologies in powerful active hybrid protection. CloseGap receives additional enhancements with every update, so the functionality can easily be adapted to the current threat. This means your data is ideally protected all the time – even in the event of new, previously unknown attack scenarios. And G DATA CloseGap does all this while consuming significantly less resources than the usual dual engine concept.

Dual engine technology functionality

A dual engine provides perfect protection against online threats. However, the double detection ties up considerable computing resources.

G DATA CloseGap functionality

G DATA CloseGap active hybrid protection detects and closes gaps in the protective shield fully automatically, quickly and effectively – for robust protection that doesn't slow down your PC or notebook.
