Data antivirus detects and removes malicious software – known as malware from laptops and computers. This malicious software is designed to damage your device or steal information. Malware can be downloaded on your computer through an email attachment or a USB drive, or even a shady website.
The majority of anti-virus programs employ three detection methods to detect malware that include: specific detection (looking for unique sequences of bytes identifying the malware); generic scanning, that looks for the components of malicious code that are found in other viruses; heuristic analysis, which analyzes suspicious file structures. The best anti-virus software combines these techniques to protect you against various threats.
G DATA combines all of these features with others, such as parental control, which limits the use of internet by children and banking security that prevents hackers from intercepting online shopping or bank details, cloud backup, which stores encrypted files on servers, and not on the device. iOS security, which monitors apps for harmful content. The firewall is also in place which monitors incoming data and outgoing data. A phishing blocker stops criminals from accessing information via sites controlled by them.
G DATA has an excellent real-world protection score. This means it’s extremely unlikely to confuse regular files for malicious ones, and it has a minimal impact on your device performance, so it shouldn’t consume a lot of your computer’s resources. The price ranges from $40 per year for one device to $72 for five devices.
