G DATA’s Antivirus Business was noted in particular for the ease of installation and the simplicity in managing the console for experienced and non-expert administrators.    

“G DATA Antivirus Business is very easy for an experienced administrator to install, especially the seamless integration of SQL Express into the setup wizard, said Andreas Clementi, CEO of AV-Comparatives. “The console is reminiscent of the familiar Microsoft Management console, and can comfortably be used by a non-expert as well as an expert-admin to manage the network. The excellent manual could be used to assist if necessary.”

In awarding this recognition, AV-Comparatives assessed all aspects of G DATA’s Antivirus Business including software installation, program execution, defense against unauthorized access, malware alerts, protection software, and the level of knowledge needed for the product to run efficiently. G DATA excelled in all areas, resulting its its high praise in the report.

“Protection through innovative layered detection engines and extensive functionality make the G DATA security solutions the ideal choice for any company, especially businesses with compliance requirements, said Beat Kramer, CEO of Contronex, Inc., a U.S. G DATA Software Business Partner. “Our fast growing customer base particularly values the ease of use in combination with complete flexibility and great support.”

G DATA’s Antivirus Business is a basic benchmark for IT security and uses double-scan technology and proactive detection that reliably identifies and removes even unknown viruses, Trojans and other malware. G DATA was one of only nine packages for small business that were recognized for their functionality and ease of use.

“We are honored to receive this recognition from AV-Comparatives around one of our flagship products,” said Andy Hayter, security evangelist for G DATA. “We work hard to provide our customers a product that is not only extremely successful at detecting malware, but is also easy to use, straightforward and intuitive. We include as much automation as possible including automatic Internet updates which enables extremely fast response times, while allowing extensive customization to fit the needs of any administrator at any experience level.”
