AV-Comparatives Awards 2023 for G Data

G Data achieved great success in AV-Comparatives’ Enterprise and Consumer Main-Test Series of 2023. The tests covered different protection scenarios, system performance, and false positives.

The interface of G Data Total Security is easily navigated, via a single row of tiles. There is a choice of a default or a customised installation, whereby the latter lets you choose individual components to install. The status display provides details of individual protection components, and access control is excellent. Most commendably, USB devices are proactively scanned for malware on connection. On-access protection means that files are scanned for malware if you try to copy them to your PC.

G Data Endpoint Protection Business provides a server-based console for managing the endpoint protection software. This can be installed on any current Windows Server or Windows client operating system. Multiple management servers can be used within an organisation, and managed from a single console. An option is available for protecting virtual machines, which uses a “light” agent and a virtual scan server. The product can manage networks with thousands of devices. We also feel it would be suitable for smaller businesses with tens of devices.

AV-Comparatives’ tests are very carefully designed and executed to thoroughly and realistically simulate scenarios that face users in real life. Consequently, a certification by AV-Comparatives is a guarantee of an effective and reliable product. An “Approved Product” award means that the software has been rigorously checked to ensure that it will perform its intended task competently. It is an industry-recognised standard of quality.

AV-Comparatives’ tests have multiple aspects, to represent the different requirements of IT security solutions. Further awards highlight the effectiveness of individual programs in different protection scenarios, low false positives, and low impact on system performance. Users can thus see which programs score highly in the categories that matter most to them.
