Top marks for G Data Corporate Solutions

AV comparatives puts corporate antivirus solutions under the microscope

05/29/2009 | Bochum 

The renowned Austrian research laboratory AV comparatives placed corporate IT security solutions on the test bench in a globally unique test. The experts paid particular attention to ease of installation, available functions and usability. For many IT managers, the last point in particular is very difficult to assess prior to actual installation. The testers were highly impressed by G Data ClientSecurity Enterprise: "We would highly recommend the G Data suite to administrators. The G Data solutions are extremely well thought through and coded."


Without doubt, security solutions belong to the most important investments which companies make to protect their IT infrastructure. "Within the business sector there are a large number of security solutions, the quality of which varies greatly. Comparison tests, which have been around for many years in the case of desktop solutions, did not exist," says Dr Dirk Hochstrate, board member of G Data Software AG. "Therefore we welcome the initiative of AV comparatives to close this gap. The positive assessments of our Business-Generation 10, demonstrate that G Data offers the most administration-friendly security solutions by a clear margin for networks of any size. All of which is without any compromise where security is concerned."

Network solutions were tested from the following providers: Avira, Eset, G Data, Kaspersky, Sophos, Symantec and Trustport. The complete comparison test can be found on the official website of AV comparatives:

Overview of G Data Business-Generation 10
G Data AntiVirus Business is the centrally administered corporate virus protection package. The ManagementServer controls all clients on desktops, notebooks and file servers. All client processes run invisibly - with users prevented from changing the security level. G Data AntiVirus Enterprise expands the business version by adding the powerful G Data MailSecurity. The mail server-independent gateway solution filters all incoming and outgoing email (SMTP/ POP 3) for spam and viruses.

Modern networks are extremely mobile - which makes it all the more important that all clients autonomously receive the best-possible protection. G Data ClientSecurity Business and ClientSecurity Enterprise protect network clients with client/server-based high-performance virus protection, a prize-winning client firewall and effective spam and phishing protection. G Data ClientSecurity Enterprise also comprises the very efficient G Data MailSecurity, a mail server-independent email gateway solution. It checks all incoming and outgoing email (SMTP and POP3) for potential infections.

Secure virus and spam protection for email correspondence.
G Data MailSecurity works as a gateway, independent from your mail server, and can therefore be combined with any mail server software running under Windows or Linux to securely protect your SMTP- or POP3-based correspondence from viruses, spam, phishing and other malware programs - before they even reach your server.
