G Data Internet Security offers complete protection against virus, hackers, spam and all kinds of Internet threats. In real-world attack tests, G Data proved to be the best antivirus software in combating the attacks of any nature.

Close Gap technology is implemented to completely prevent and remove any security threats. Behavioural based detection used in G Data has proved to be very effective technique ever since. The antivirus adds technically nothing to the start-up time due to its AutoStartManager control. The software has the firewall that functions quietly without disturbing any running application.

G Data provides a powerful spam filter that helps you keep your inbox spam-free. The improvised Bank Guard technology provides strong security for your online banking activities. Any program trying to expose these sensitive data stealthily is located and removed immediately.

Gamers got something to cherish in G Data. It has features to activate gaming mode that allows the gamers to enjoy their games without any interruptions like pop-up windows or triggers. The fingerprinting, active hybrid protection and idle scanning make way for optimized usage of the system resources.

Everything seems to be okay with this software installed. Provides the best virus protection and engages the least of system resources. To add more to it, G Data has tools that improve the performance of the PC.

The user Interface has been reengineered for easier handling. However, there still are complaints about overly complicated interface. The installation also seems pretty much longer than the competitor products. However, the help and support is good with email and 24/7 telephone support.
