G DATA Internet Security Android achieves highest rating in AV-Comparatives and AV-TEST

German security software for mobile devices continues its successful series

A security solution has long been part of the standard equipment of a smartphone or tablet, because last year G DATA analysts counted a total of more than 4.1 million new malicious apps for Android. The two independent test institutes AV-TEST and AV-Comparatives therefore tested which security app users can rely on. The result is clear: Both test institutes certify that G DATA Internet Security Android detects 100 percent malware and reward the security solution "Made in Germany" with the highest mark.

This outstanding result is a confirmation of our many years of work and shows that customers can rely on "Made in Germany". We will continue to work on securing mobile devices in the best possible way
