G Data SmallBusiness Security: Perfect Security for Small Companies

02/20/2013 | Bochum (Germany) 

All companies need a reliable IT security solution that provides effective protection against viruses, Trojans and other malware to survive. According to communications intelligence agency GCHQ, UK businesses lose £21 billion per year to cyber crime. In particular smaller companies are likely to fall behind, because most security solutions are not designed for their particular needs. They are either too complicated to manage or too expensive to purchase. With G Data SmallBusiness Security, the German security expert is now offering a new security solution that has been designed with small businesses in mind and requires hardly any IT knowledge. All protective functions work maintenance free and run automatically in the background, saving companies time and - most importantly- maintenance costs. The savings are instant: thanks to the affordable "5+3 license", the comprehensive security solution protects up to five PCs in the network and up to three additional non-networked desktop computers or laptops. G Data SmallBusiness Security is now available at specialised retailers for £199.

Small businesses expect a security solution that not only offers reliable protection against malware, spam and hacker attacks, but is also easy to use while requiring few resources and being cost-effective. At many small companies with up to five computers, the business owner is often also the administrator, but not necessarily an IT expert. G Data SmallBusiness Security offers the ideal solution to this problem: the best possible protection against all online threats and easy administration The protection technologies "Made in Germany" are completely maintenance free, transparent and run automatically in the background, so business owners can focus all their energy on their valuable core business.

Easy to use
The installation and setup of the software are self-explanatory and require hardly any IT knowledge. Using the central management interface, business owners and "part-time administrators" can always get an overview of what is going on in their network.

Administration: Anytime and any place
The new remote control allows administrators to access their network solution at any time and from any place, for example, to query the security status, configure the firewall, initiate scans or manage user authorisations.

Safe banking transactions
Thanks to the innovative BankGuard technology, which is integrated into G Data’s security solutions, banking transactions will be secure and protected against dangerous banking Trojans.

Data backup under control
The loss of important business data due to hard drive failures, accidental deletion or data theft can ruin companies. G Data SmallBusiness Security and its integrated Backup module mean that business owners also have this risk under control. All data are conveniently and cost-effectively backed up. Buying a separate backup solution will no longer be necessary.
