G Data security solutions available immediately for Windows 7

Free program upgrades for Vista's successor

10/22/2009 | Bochum 

Officially, Windows 7 comes out on the 22nd October 2009, but security experts are already agreed about one thing: Vista's successor will soon be targeted by cyber criminals. So that PC users will be able to safely surf the Internet, G Data is already offering upgrades for the 2010 versions of its security solutions. The new program versions are available for free download from the G Data website to all customers with valid support licences. In parallel with this, delivery to retailers has already begun.

"Doubtless, Microsoft will have made its own preparations for the security of the new operating system, but it's an absolute certainty that Windows 7 doesn't come with professional security software. In this respect, G Data customers can rely completely on the usual high quality of our products and are immediately entitled to a free upgrade to the Windows 7 versions. Obviously these continue to be suitable for all Vista and Windows XP variants," explains G Data Board Member Dr Dirk Hochstrate.


G Data upgrade policy: simple, quick and free

Customers can now find the relevant upgrades for their 2010 program versions available as self-executable program files from a protected download area on the G Data website. Access to the download area is only available to registered G Data customers. Legitimation takes place through the input of the login data, user name and password, which were transferred by the G Data update server when registering the previous version. The program upgrades can be found at the support centre of the G Data website: www.gdata.de/support/top-themen/upgradeservice.html.
