CeBIT premiere: G Data security generation 2014 uses new antivirus technology for faster protection

Active hybrid protection closes holes and makes surfing, online banking and online shopping safe

Today G Data presents its new security solutions for home users at CeBIT 2013. With the 2014 security generation, G Data  once again sets the standard when it comes to security. G Data AntiVirus 2014, G Data InternetSecurity 2014 and G Data TotalProtection 2014 now come with an active hybrid protection technology, G Data CloseGap. The new technology "Made in Germany" quickly closes holes in the computer's defence ring and saves resources. G Data CloseGap com-bines signature-based and proactive protection technologies in a new, insurmountable wall of defence. For example, the BankGuard module, also recently developed, offers defence against dangerous banking Trojans in real time without relying on signatures – whether the malware is one hour or one second old. Thanks to the completely redesigned one click user interface, the security solutions are ex-tremely easy to use. Virus scans, backups and setting up the new AutostartManager are possible with just one mouse click. Device control in G Data TotalProtection 2014, which is also new, offers addi-tional protection and ensures that other users cannot use unwanted USB sticks or DVDs on the home computer. G Data AntiVirus 2014, G Data InternetSecurity 2014 and G Data TotalProtection 2014 will be commercially available in April 2013.

Fast, effective – and saves resources: G Data CloseGap
A short reaction time between the first instance of malware and the prepa-ration of an appropriate signature is often critical for effective defence against malware attacks. Traditional antivirus solutions are often unable to keep pace.

G Data CloseGap technology takes a different route, combining a vast range of proactive, signature-based security technologies in powerful active hybrid protection. CloseGap receives additional enhancements with every update, so the functionality is constantly being adapted to the current threat situation. This means users and their data are ideally protected all the time – even in the event of new, previously unknown attack scenarios.

New, intuitive user interface
The new, intuitive user interface delivers all the critical information concerning the computer's security status at a glance. The program controls are self-explanatory, so the user does not have to keep one hand on the manual.

Thanks to the proactive real-time protection, users are protected against all online threats.
