Security Solution Receives Highest Marks Possible From Leading Antivirus Research Institute

Receiving the highest marks possible for our solution is a great honor.

G DATA, the world’s longest standing antivirus company, today announced that their Internet Security for Android solution received the AV-TEST Certification, a coveted accolade in Internet security. This certification comes from the AV-Test Institute, which is the leading international and independent service provider in the fields of IT security and antivirus research. The annual award was created to motivate antivirus manufacturers to optimise their products and contribute towards increasing public awareness of the growing importance of IT security. G DATA’s solution was given the award for detecting 100% of malware samples tested, its ease of use, and practical features.

“The AV-TEST Institute is a leader in antivirus research and holds significant credibility in the IT security field,” said Andy Hayter, security evangelist, G DATA. “Receiving the highest marks possible for our solution is a great honor, and shows the high level of security and protection we offer our Android customers.”

G DATA Internet Security for Android offers reliable all-around protection for mobile devices using the Android operating system. Besides protection against malware, risky applications and dangers while surfing the Web, the solution also protects users against the consequences of losing the device or having it stolen. In this case, a smartphone can be located and all the data deleted remotely, protecting it from third party access.

Additionally, the built-in parental controls help parents make sure that their children use the smartphone or tablet as intended. For example, age-inappropriate web content is automatically blocked in a special children's browser. To prevent high telephone bills, calls and text messages can also be blocked, although emergency calls can still be made. This enables small explorers to surf the web safely, and parents can put their mobile device in the hands of their children with no worries.
