G Data Security Generation 2014 Now Available

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

London, April 23rd, 2013

Today G Data launches its new security solutions for home users. 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 combines 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 extremely 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 additional 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 are available now.
